Research carried out on behalf of campaigners has found a link between the illness, which has developed in some airline staff, and the fumes which are sometimes present in the cabin and cockpit of jet engines. It is thought that up to 200,000 UK passengers could be exposed to the dangerous chemicals each year.
The aircraft manufacturers BAe and Boeing say the air supplies in their planes meet the required health and safety standards but it is thought that the discovery could lead to a number of compensation claims.
