The Coronavirus outbreak has caused many countries to enhance screening measures for passengers and crew pending entry into their country. In some situations, countries have imposed a number of restrictions that could lead to a refusal of entry into the country.
February 18, 2020 United updated Flight Attendants on the most recent restrictions and how it would affect Flight Attendants who may have recently traveled to China for a pairing or on personal time.
It is important to note that Flight Attendants are responsible for ensuring they are able to travel to any countries included in their pairing and that they meet the necessary requirements for entry. Flight Attendants who traveled to China are encouraged to review the list prior to flying a trip out of their home country. You should also review the most current version of the list prior to checking in for a pairing.
Your Safety, Health & Security Committee continues to work closely with United and government agencies to monitor the situation for the benefit of our Members. If you have questions or concerns about recent China flying or restrictions on travel, contact your Local Safety, Health & Security Representative.
