U.S. airlines will require passengers to answer a series of health questions before boarding, including whether they have experienced covid-19 symptoms or have been exposed to someone that tested positive for the virus.
Major U.S. carriers, including American, Delta and United are implementing the new health acknowledgment policy as an additional level of protection during the pandemic.
Travelers should expect to be asked to fill out the new health questionnaire when they check-in. Besides questions about their health, passengers are asked to commit to wearing a face covering at the airport and on their flight.
If they don't answer the questionnaire they could risk being deemed "unfit to travel."
Passengers will also be asked to acknowledge if they have been exposed to someone who tested positive or had symptoms of covid-19 in the last 14 days.
Other airlines enforcing the new health acknowledgment policies are Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways and Southwest Airlines.
