About this Deal
All airlines have called for increased health screening to help convince travelers it's safe to fly again. Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly earlier this week said the Transportation Security Administration should add temperature scans at the security checkpoint. The TSA said no decisions have been made.
Biffle said Frontier believes the TSA should handle screenings and that the agency and airport authorities "may be working to lay that groundwork.''
Until then, Frontier wants to do its own screenings of passengers. Employees will be subject to the same standard, Frontier said.
Frontier said passengers will be screened with touchless thermometers prior to boarding. If a traveler's temperature reading exceeds 100.4℉, they will be given time to rest before receiving a second check if there is time before boarding.
If the second reading exceeds 100.4℉, the passenger will not be able to board that day. Frontier said it will work with passengers to rebook traveler on a later date or "otherwise accommodate the traveler’s preferences with respect to their reservation.''
Frontier passengers already must fill out a health acknowledgement form on the airline's website or mobile app prior to check-in saying that neither they nor anyone in their household has had COVID-19 related symptoms in the last 14 days, that they will not head to the airport if they have a fever and that they acknowledge the airline's new face mask requirement.
The face mask requirement begins Friday.
