Masks for airports & airlines

Monkeypox now also a problem!

Travellers should always carry a face mask on them when undertaking air travel within the EU and for the UK.  The rules vary from country to country and often the airline/airport operator staff are not completely up to date.

The EU updated its stance on the wearing of masks onboard aircraft last week, the new guidance came into effect on Monday (16 May).

It mirrors changes in Covid guidance on public transport across the continent, and some member states’ unilateral decisions to ease their domestic Covid measures.

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is recommending travellers wear FFP2 standard masks where required by member states.

In its updated guidance, drafted with input from European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), EASA said the wearing of face coverings at airports and while in-flight "should be aligned with national measures on wearing masks in public and transport hubs".
