Many US adults would stand behind any potential actions airlines and airports take in response to the pandemic.
According to May 2020 YouGov data, 82% of adults said they support deep cleaning after every flight, and 76% were in favor of airlines adding sanitizing guidelines during the flight safety demonstration. Additionally, nearly two-thirds supported the monitoring of passengers’ temperatures, heart rates and respiratory rates before boarding a flight.
Airlines may even see an increase in travel insurance post-pandemic. According to the survey, more than half (57%) of respondents said they would consider buying an insurance policy that would issue full refunds in the event they were denied boarding.
