September 7, 2021: -Alaska Airlines will be giving unvaccinated employees to be tested regularly for coronavirus disease. Still, the Seattle-based carrier stopped short to mandate the vaccines, a policy it said it was considering in the previous month.

Alaska said employees who share proof of vaccination by October 15 would receive a $200 bonus. Airline’s three-quarters are roughly 20,000 employees vaccinated so far.

Airline vaccine policies for their staff vary. United Airlines will also require its roughly 68,000-person U.S. workforce to be vaccinated by September 27, barring religious and medical exemptions.

Delta Air Lines, in the previous month, announced it plans to impose a $200 surcharge for medical insurance for unvaccinated employees in November.

Alaska Airlines said it would no longer cover the pay of unvaccinated employees for Covid exposure or infection. Unvaccinated staff must also attend “a vaccine education program.”

New hires must be vaccinated to work at Alaska Airlines or subsidiary Horizon Air, also a requirement to begin work at Delta.
