I too heard this, i assume all they can do is take your temperature as a full blown swine flu test would mean we would have to wait in the terminal for 5 days

Going over to Turkey last week we had to fill in a questionnaire which apart from our personal details and where we were staying asked us if we had a temperature, knew anyone or had been in close contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with swine flu etc.
Then on arrival at Bodrum airport, there is a bloke with a heat sensing device pointing at all arrivals.
All a bit of a non-runner unless you are patently obviously running a high temperature as you arrive, but can't knock them for trying, but as Pash points out, you could contract it one day, arrive in Turkey the next and only display the symptoms a day or two afterwards.

They've been doing it for a few weeks now. It's no great drama, it isn't creating much of a delay and at least they're making an effort.
