Mask Rules By Airline
« on: March 24, 2022, 11:22:54 AM »
With mask mandates being lifted by many countries and airlines, I think it might be useful to have a wikied chart that gets updated showing the different rules. If such a thread exists, please let me know where and I'll delete

I'll start with airlines that officially still require but in practice don't enforce at all, based on my experience and those on my tours. Probably not precisely what the OP has in mind, but still helpful in the same way.

Ethiopian Airlines
Kenya Airways
KLM (only flew them twice recently, so not as large a data point as the others)

All my experience is in J; I can't speak for Y.

KLM officially announced they will not enforce.

I'm curious if that applies to US routes in practice as well

Virgin Atlantic said they are not requiring masks except for on flights to or from US

I think now is the time when this thread won't be needed. In a few weeks no one will require masks.

Hence my thread. Hoping to find flights with layovers that minimize the masking to be more manageable (for the kids).

At the EWR gate for Turkish flight to IST, maybe 5 people are wearing masks.

In the air everyone has masks but many have it lowered and I havenít heard a word from the crew about it. Maybe J is different than Y though.

On both flights on the return 30-40% of the passengers had their masks down or completely off the whole flight and nobody said a word.

Wasn't told a word after takeoff but people in Y told me they had the opposite experience.

I'm flying Virgin Atlantic next week JFK to TLV with a stop in LHR and back with KLM and a stop in AMS.
  • Seems like masks aren't aren't required/enforced by either airline, can anyone confirm?
  • Will I need any Covid documents or tests for any part of the trip?
