Caring for you is our priority — that’s why we’re introducing new steps to give you even more peace of mind when you fly.

Travel Health Advisory Panel
Working with Vanderbilt University Medical Center, we’re creating a Travel Health Advisory Panel to advise us on health and cleaning matters. This group of experts will provide long-term guidance on:

  • Disease prevention and public health matters
  • Cleaning procedures on the ground and on board
  • Innovation opportunities for the future

Biorisk Accreditation
In a first for any airline, we’re seeking GBAC STARTM Accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council for all of our aircraft and lounges.

This accreditation demonstrates we have the proper cleaning and disinfection practices, procedures and systems in place to respond to biological threats like COVID-19.

Symptom Checklist for Travelers
Beginning June 30, we’ll ask all travelers during the check-in process to certify they have been free of COVID-19 symptoms for the past 14 days. This is in addition to requiring all travelers on board to wear a face covering.
