EasyJet has become the latest carrier to review its on-board face covering policy, with masks no longer mandatory on some routes.

From Sunday, 27 March – the start of the summer flying season – masks aren’t required on UK domestic flights including Jersey,  but excluding routes to and from Scotland and flights between the UK and Denmark, Gibraltar, Iceland and Hungary.

Unlike other airlines that have already removed the mandate to wear a face covering on flights, easyJet is not recommending people still do wear a mask.

Instead, it says: “Any customers or crew who wish to continue wearing a mask will of course have their personal choice respected.”

In a statement, easyJet said: “easyJet is really pleased to see the start of a return to truly restriction-free flying for UK consumers, following the welcome removal of all remaining UK travel restrictions last week.  

“Following the removal of mandatory mask wearing in a number of countries, we have reviewed our mask policy onboard and have taken the decision that, from 27 March 2022, on flights where masks are no longer legally required at both ends of the route, we will not mandate customers and crew to wear masks onboard the flight.”

EasyJet said it will remove the mandate on other international routes ‘as and when both ends of the route has no legal requirement’.
