Frontier Airlines: CDC Now Says Ebola Patient May Have Had Symptoms ‘While Onboard the Flight’

(H/T TheBlaze)


Frontier Airlines said late Wednesday night that the company had been notified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that the Ebola patient who flew on their airline may have had symptoms while aboard the flight.

In a letter to employees, Frontier Airlines CEO Dave Siegel said he “was notified by the CDC that the passenger may have been symptomatic earlier than initially suspected; including the possibility of possessing symptoms while onboard the flight,” according to WEWS-TV.

The CDC had previously said that the nurse “exhibited no signs or symptoms of illness” while on the flight, but said they still wanted individuals who were on the flight to contact them. In a statement, Frontier had echoed that and said their crew didn’t observe any signs of illness from the patient.

“In light of the new information, Frontier determines that the aircraft will remain out of service and ferries it back to Denver from Cleveland without customers,” Siegel added in his letter to employees. “The flight departs at 6:20 p.m. EDT and arrives in Denver at 7:20 p.m. MDT.”
