Since the start of the pandemic, United has been a leader in
enacting new policies and innovations designed to keep employees
and passengers safer when traveling. It was the first U.S. airline
to mandate masks for flight attendants, quickly following with
customers and employees. United was also among the first U.S.
carriers to announce it will not permit customers who refuse to
comply with the airline's mandatory mask policy to fly with them
while the face mask policy is in place. United was also the first
U.S. airline to roll out touchless check-in for customers with
bags, and the first to require passengers take an online health
assessment before traveling. The airline also recently announced it
plans to apply Zoono Microbe Shield, an EPA-registered
antimicrobial coating that forms a long-lasting bond with surfaces
and inhibits the growth of microbes, to its entire mainline and
express fleet before the end of the year.
