From his perch on the U.S. Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, at the end of last week, U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., urged airlines “to provide clear guidance on their plans to keep American travelers safe” during the coronavirus pandemic.

Scott weighed in on Friday on what he wants airline companies to provide passengers.

“Last month, I called on U.S. airlines to create a plan to protect Americans through the coronavirus outbreak,” Scott said, pointing to a letter he sent airline companies at the start of April. “Now, I’m calling on all U.S. airlines to clearly lay out how they are going to continue to keep passengers safe as we return to our ‘new normal.’ I applaud the airlines that are already taking important steps, like mandating face masks, to protect health and safety. I encourage every airline to follow suit and provide specific guidance moving forward so Americans can feel safe traveling.”
