United Airlines Staff Who Get Religious Exemption From Covid Vaccine Mandate Will Need To Take Unpaid Leave

West Yellowstone - United air plane

The airline said it won’t allow unvaccinated staff to return to flight attendant jobs and other customer-facing roles until “the pandemic meaningfully recedes,” but technicians and other operational staff who rarely interact with customers can return to in-person work after the company devises new testing and safety precautions.

United did not disclose its vaccination rate to Forbes, but the company estimated that 90% of pilots and 80% of flight attendants were inoculated when it first rolled out its mandate last month, and it said in Wednesday’s memo that most staffers who were still unvaccinated when the requirement was announced are now vaccinated.
