TUI Airways has updated its onboard policy to say masks are no longer required on flights to and from England and Northern Ireland.
The airline said last week it was reviewing its rules after Jet2.com announced face coverings were no longer mandatory on some flights.
TUI has updated its advice to say: “From Friday 11 March, face masks will no longer be a legal requirement on TUI Airways flights to/from England and Northern Ireland, however in line with UK Government and EU Charter guidance, we strongly recommend that you still wear a mask throughout your flight.
“Under current guidance, it is still mandatory for customers aged 12 and above travelling on TUI Airways to/from Wales and Scotland to wear a mask throughout their flight unless medically exempt.
“It’s important to note that you may still be required to wear a mask when leaving the aircraft and once inside the airport at your arrival destination.
“It is mandatory for customers aged two and above travelling to the USA on TUI Airways to wear a mask throughout their flight. Please remember to carry evidence if you are medically exempt.
“It is mandatory for all customers aged six and over travelling to Italy on TUI Airways to wear an FFP2 mask throughout their flight. Please remember to carry evidence if you are medically exempt.
“If you are showing any COVID-19 symptoms or have recently tested positive you should not travel and will be able to change your holiday fee-free under our COVID flexibility policy.
“If you are flying with one of our airline partners please check their website for the latest information.”
