(KSTP) - The holidays make December one of the busiest travel months of the year, but it also happens to be cold and flu season.

What should you look out for when your traveling?

Surprisingly, there are less germs inside the airplane than the actual airport. This is because cabin air is circulated through hospital-grade air filters.

However, an airplane is still a germy environment. According to the Center for Disease Control, the hot spots for germs are the fronts and backs of seats, along with tray tables.
