United Airlines unveils voluntary contact tracing program


United Airlines announced Wednesday a program to collect customer contact data on all flights to assist health officials in contact tracing in the effort to contain COVID-19.

The program, which will cover both domestic and international flights, follows a similar announcement earlier this month by rival Delta Air Lines, but the Delta program only pertains to international flights.

The program, which is supported by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will be voluntary for passengers.
