Alaska Airlines adds passenger health screening to check-in process

Fox News has reported Alaska Airlines plans to include a passenger health questionnaire as part of its check-in procedure, the news source said.

The assessment is part of the airline´s Next-Level Care initiative and will ask travelers to confirm they have not exhibited COVID symptoms in the past 72 hours and have not traveled with someone who is symptomatic. The passenger must also agree to bring and wear a mask while on their flight.

The health agreement will be implemented across all Alaska Airlines flights beginning June 30, according to a news release shared on the airline´s blog about its enhanced safety policies as air travel increases during the summer months.
