European Union scraps face masks on board aircraft

From next week, face masks will no longer be mandatory anywhere in European air transport. That decision is in line with the changing requirements of national authorities regarding public transport in Europe, according to EASA.

“It is a relief to everyone that we have finally reached a point in the pandemic where we can relax health measures,” said EASA CEO Patrick Ky. “For many travelers and aircrew there is a strong desire to abolish the masking requirement on board aircraft. We are now at the beginning of that process.”
