Ryanair dropping masks on some EU flights
Ryanair is dropping mandatory mask wearing on flights to the EU starting next week.
Following updated EASA/ECDC guidance, face masks will no longer be mandatory on EU flights from 16 May.
There are exceptions where governments still require mandatory mask wearing on public transport.
These 15 countries include Austria, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain.
“We welcome this rule relaxation. Face masks will then be optional on all Ryanair flights except where masks remain mandatory, ”Ryanair’s CEO Eddie Wilson said.
“We expect these states to relax their face mask rules over the coming days in line with these new health guidelines.”
