Vaccination policy

Hi all, Im looking for help please and would like to get an idea on current uk airline vaccination policy’s (ones that fly international ideally) as a known operator is effectively mandating it and I believe no other airline is?

I really appreciate your input.

thanks AIrcart 👍🏻

Not being vaccinated will affect your ability to travel worldwide, and most employers would likely pick more suitable candidates for the role offered.

It's not just the airlines, it's entry requirements for each country you'll fly to you'll have to think about.

We all have choices but they come with consequences which you need to weigh up.

Thanks but the comments are way off the OP question?

Comments made are common sense however I am specifically looking to gain information on uk airline SARS-cov2 vaccination policy.... I.e: British airways for instance fly to China but do not require staff to declare their status? What are airline rules on booster jabs and subsequent re jab after 180 days etc etc.??

Thanks. AC

BA hasn't asked directly for my vax status, and I suspect that they wouldn't do so in an interview either. Being vaccinated is not listed as a requirement on their latest recruitment drive.

However, I've had to tell them indirectly, with whether or not I meet the "entry requirements" of XYZ destination so they know whether or not to remove me from the trip.

Employers cannot specifically ask due to GDPR rules. But clearly some destinations e.g. HKG/China need it. You need to make that choice therefore

thanks, what happens if they do ask for that information? And what can they do with that information? Punitive action maybe?

Employers can only ask for the information for a 'specific purpose' - they would need to be able to justify what that purpose was. I would imagine that somewhere in the employment contract will be a condition about being able to meet the "entry requirements" of any countries they operate to and that would seem to be a justifiable reason. So if any require covid vaccination information as a condition of entry, failure to supply the information (or providing false information) would be a disiplinary matter.

Thanks, would this for instance be the same for entry into a country with ongoing military activity for instance? (Hypothetical)
Intrestingly they didn’t give a reason for needing to know.

Probably asking because someone who has declined a safe and effective vaccine neatly demonstrates particularly poor risk assessment and decision making skills, and this saves them the time and cost of interviewing them.

An interesting assumption considering questions were asked regarding booster requirements etc.
A well balanced, polarised and opinionated response! Very off topic.
No wonder some members get a bad name. 😆🤦‍♂️


Thanks for “Most” people’s reply’s so far 👍

An interesting article and seems to make all the Airline mandates a joke!
it’s also interesting that the first uk pilot got fired from a uk operatior for not taking the vaccine just two months ago!
Florida have just effectively banned the shot for 18-39 year olds!
here is the link:

I haven't written on this site for a long time, but when I read trash like this -the vaccine is neither safe nor effective-go and do some research instead of reading popular rags and msm..There are more and more scientists proving just how bad these "vaccines" (I use the word advisedly because they changed the definition of the word.) are.
Let's just say if you think you are now safe having been "fully vaxed" , I would say be very careful as you have undoubtedly compromised you immune system.

I would suggest if you’ve been discriminated against for being unvaccinated, or being forced to be vaccinated, then keep all details of the company’s and individuals involved. You’ll need it for future class action litigation against those company’s and individuals.

Here we are, well down the line.

There has been no widespread ill-effects of the vaccine. Certainly less so than those of COVID.

I hope some of you will reconsider your thoughts on deciding to side with crackpot conspiracy theories on the internet.

Science is real. The discoveries of scientists hold our planes aloft. Give the same respect to the other.

The only side affect I seem to be having since 5 shots of Pfizer is worse symptoms than my wife who had 0 shots. We've both had covid multiple times and it knocks me flat every time for a week. Her, she bounces back the next day.

I regret taking any of them, but was forced to by my employer. No ideas of the long term side affects, but I regret it, for the above reasons.
