Because They Can... Frontier Wants To Take Your Temp

Frontier Airlines Begins Temperature Screenings for All Passengers and Crew

Frontier Airlines has nnow instituted temperature screenings for all passengers and crew prior to boarding flights. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher will not be permitted to travel. Additionally, the airline continues to require face coverings for all passengers and crew, and face coverings must be worn throughout the entire flight.

“Temperature screenings are the latest addition to our comprehensive, multi-layered approach to supporting the health and well-being of everyone onboard our aircraft,” said Frontier Airlines CEO Barry Biffle. “Combined with face coverings, hospital-grade HEPA air filtration and enhanced cleaning and disinfection procedures, we believe our aircraft are safer than any other mode of transportation.”

Customers are being screened via touchless thermometers prior to boarding. If a customer’s temperature reading is 100.4 degrees or higher, and time allows, they will be given the opportunity to rest before receiving a second check. If the second temperature screening is 100.4 degrees or higher, a Frontier gate agent will explain to the customer that they will not be flying that day for the health and safety of others. Frontier will work with that customer to rebook travel on a later date or otherwise accommodate the traveler’s preferences with respect to their reservation.

Additionally, all Frontier crew members are being held to the same standard and not allowed to work if their temperature is 100.4 degrees or higher at the start of their shift.

Frontier, along with many other U.S. airlines, supports the idea of temperature screenings being conducted by the Transportation Security Administration or other governmental authority prior to individuals reaching the gate. In the meantime, Frontier will conduct its own temperature screenings until such a plan is put in place.
