A computational study of airflow and dispersion of airborne pathogens inside an aircraft cabin is conducted with the aim of assessing the feasibility of installing bioaerosol sensors. Such sensors would gather information during flight about the dispersion of a pathogen within each row of seats in the cabin, thereby providing a warning about possible infected passengers.
