Mandate testing and safety
Re: “Southwest CEO argues against testing — Placing requirement on domestic travelers would cripple airlines, he says,” Thursday Metro & Business story.
This letter is regarding Gary Kelly’s letter to the White House opposing COVID-19 testing requirements for flying within the United States following the new Biden administration’s restrictions on international travel. I am one of the “millions of people (business travelers) whose livelihoods depend on a stable air travel industry” and I along with millions of others will not be traveling by air until COVID-19 testing requirements and other safety precautions are in place.
Until such time as a safety and testing mandate is in place, I believe that in Kelly’s words, the airlines will find it “costly, and have serious unintended consequences” for the airline industry.
