(CBS4/CNN) – Airports and airlines are rolling out new policies aimed at protecting passengers and crew from coronavirus transmission and increasing consumer confidence in air travel safety. Everyone in Denver is required to wear a face mask in public starting Wednesday — and that includes all passengers, employees and visitors at Denver International Airport.
Here’s where some major carriers stand, at this point, on personal protective equipment:
Frontier Airlines will begin requiring that passengers wear a face covering over their nose and mouth at the airline’s ticket counters, gate areas and onboard Frontier aircraft, effective May 8. Very young children, for whom a face covering is inadvisable, will be exempt from the policy. Face coverings have been required for Frontier flight crews since April 13.
JetBlue Airways announced that it will require all passengers to wear face masks starting on May 4. Crew members were already required to wear masks.
