United Airlines adds flights in Newark, ramps up cleaning

For the first time in a month, passengers on Wednesday boarded a United Airlines flight to Orlando from Newark Liberty International Airport. Staff enforced United’s new protocols: boarding from back to front to minimize passenger interaction and requiring that everyone wear a mask during the entire flight. The TSA reports airline travel is down 92% due to the pandemic. Travelers admitted to mixed feelings about flying, even as COVID-19 lockdowns continue in many states.
