Mosquitoes on Board (MoB)

The project will allow us to evaluate if airplanes flying into Zürich airport carry stowaway mosquitoes. We will examine passenger and cargo compartments for exotic mosquitoes. Selection criteria for airplane will be the destination with mosquitoes of interest and the flights that are connected to Zürich airport. Mosquito traps will be placed in the cargo compartment by trained aircraft personnel and passengers and cargo compartments will be examined after return.
