Air North, Yukon’s Airline Announces Temperature Screening During Check In Process
WHITEHORSE, YT – 30 June 2020 - Air North, Yukon’s Airline will now be conducting contactless temperature screening during the check in process
Effective 1 July 2020, all Air North passengers will have their temperature taken during the check-in process. After passengers have answered the mandatory health screening questionnaire, Passenger Service Agents will conduct contactless temperature screening using infrared thermometers. For connecting passengers temperature screening will be conducted at the gate prior to boarding.
If a passengers’ temperature reads below 37.6°C (99.68°F), they will be permitted to travel.
If a passengers’ temperature reads 37.6°C (99.68°F) or higher, they will be asked the health screening questionnaire again. The passenger will be instructed to drink water and sit down for 15 minutes before returning to the counter for a second temperature check. If their temperature reads 37.6°C (99.68°F) or higher for the second time, the passenger will be asked to obtain a note of medical clearance prior to travel and will be able to rebook a new flight at no charge.
This is being implemented as per Transport Canada’s temperature check requirement for all passengers travelling to or from Canadian airports.
