JetBlue Mandates Face Covering for Passengers

All JetBlue Airways passengers will be required to wear a face covering starting May 4.  This is the strictest policy to date in the United States.  It follows the New York-based airline’s requirement that flight attendants wear a mask or face covering while on duty.

JetBlue President Joanna Geraghty said, “Wearing a face covering isn’t about protecting yourself, it’s about protecting those around you.  This is the new flying etiquette.”

Two of the nation’s largest air carriers (American Airlines and Delta Air Lines) announced they will require thousands of employees to wear face masks and provide masks for passengers.

Even though air travel in the USA is down approximately 95 percent from one year ago, airline labor unions have repeatedly demanded stronger protections against the COVID-19 pandemic.
