Loganair to keep mandatory mask rule

Regional carrier Loganair confirmed that it will still require all customers on every flight to wear face coverings when the government drops the mandatory requirement, unless they have a medical exemption.

 The airline, which was the first in the UK to mandate the wearing of face coverings on flights in May 2020,  has set out its policy in light of upcoming changes to Government policy.

Loganair has taken account of the possibility of different regulations for public transport across the four nations of the UK, where each government is able to set its own regulations.

The airline's route network spans all four UK nations and a clear policy across the Loganair network is designed to avoid confusion, it says.

Loganair's policy will be legally supported by its Conditions of Carriage.

"We believe that a consistent policy across our route network will provide assurance and confidence for each and every customer - and that confidence has been at the forefront of Loganair's efforts to fly continuously throughout the pandemic," said Loganair Chief Operations Officer Maurice Boyle.

"We'll keep this under regular review and communicate future changes when the time is right for those to be made."

Airlines easyJet and Ryanair also announced they will still require all customers to wear face masks on all flights.
