Holidaymakers will be turned away at airport check-ins if they have swine flu, two major airlines said yesterday.
Virgin Atlantic said sick passengers could be banned from flying unless they had a medical certificate giving them the go-ahead to travel.
And British Airways said there had been ‘a very small number of cases’ where passengers with flu-like symptoms were told not to travel.
The tough measures come at the height of the holiday rush when hundreds of thousands of Britons are preparing to go abroad.
If the rules are adopted by other airlines, they could bring chaos to airports over the summer.
