Airlines for America (A4A), which represents the major US carriers, called on the Trump administration to implement a global program to require testing for travelers into the US in order to control the spread of COVID-19. The group wrote a letter to Vice President Mike Pence supporting a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention proposal to adopt a global testing program. They also supported rescinding current entry restrictions on travelers from Europe, the UK and Brazil.  Nicholas Calio, A4A CEO, wrote that these entry restrictions should be removed concurrently with the testing program, “which will provide yet another layer of safety in the travel journey.” A4A also called for an implementation timeline of at least 14 days so that airlines can communicate new requirements to their customers and train their staffs globally.
