disease outbreak on frontier airlines

At least six passengers who traveled on Tampa-bound Frontier Airlines Flight 1397 on Tuesday fell ill after leaving Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

WFLA-TV reports health officials boarded the plane when it landed at Tampa International Airport on Tuesday afternoon and the sick vomiting  passengers were removed.

Janet Scherberger, a spokeswoman for Tampa International Airport, said the sick passengers were not traveling together and none of them had been taken to the hospital after landing.

The remaining passengers were kept on the plane for about an hour after it landed. Those passengers deplaned around 4:30 p.m.

The city of Cleveland said in a news release Wednesday that officials are awaiting test results from the drinking fountains on Concourse A, which will be completed in a day or two. Meanwhile, all of the drinking fountains on the concourse have been sanitized.

Authorities haven’t provided information on the symptoms passengers were experiencing or their conditions.


A representative for Cleveland Hopkins International Airport said there is a possibility the affected passengers’ illnesses were connected to a drinking fountain there. The fountains in the Frontier concourse at the airport have been shut down as a safety precaution.

At least six passengers who traveled on Tampa-bound Frontier Airlines Flight 1397 on Tuesday fell ill after leaving Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

The passengers, who were not traveling as a group, were vomiting by the time the plane landed, said Janet Scherberger, a Tampa International Airport spokeswoman.

While health officials have not confirmed what caused the illness, officials at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport are looking into whether the water fountains may have contributed to it.

About 266 passengers were onboard during the incident,

The rest of the passengers had to wait at least an hour and a half aboard the plane in Tampa before they were allowed off the aircraft, Scherberger said.

In a statement, Frontier Airlines said the ill passengers were evaluated by medical staff before being released.

“The cause of the illness remains under investigation. Passenger safety is Frontier’s number one priority,” the airline said.
