Frontier Airlines to mandate temperature screening for all passengers

Reuters has reported Frontier Airlines will begin screening passengers and crew members temperatures using touchless thermometers on June 1, the company said.

The airline will prohibit anyone with a temperature at or exceeding 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit (38 C) from boarding the aircraft.

The move followed the industry mandating facial coverings for all passengers and heightened cleaning to address coronavirus concerns and a massive air travel decline.

If a reading is at or exceeds 100.4 F, customers will be given time to rest and potentially receive a second check, the company said, adding it would work with any customer with an elevated temperature to rebook travel for a later date.
