United Airlines announced on Thursday that almost all of its management and 90% of employees had already uploaded proof of vaccination against COVID-19 ahead of the September 27 deadline outlined in August.

Staff were promised an additional day of pay for uploading their vaccination card prior to September 20, while those who requested religious exemptions will be placed on unpaid personal leave from October 2.

United became the first US carrier to mandate vaccination, amid warnings of further hits to revenue and capacity in the 3rd quarter.
