The Essentials

Masks on Planes?

Most airlines have changed their policies to make wearing masks on planes an optional decision by passengers.

But a number of governments or airlines are still requiring masks to be worn on flights to or from their countries.

This includes Air Canada, Iberia, Lufthansa, Aeromexico, and Emirates.

And in many cases,  the mask requirement extends to airports in Spain, Canada, the United Arab Emirates and Mexico.

One important caution is that not every airline or airport has an ample supply of masks on hand.

So when you’re flying to or from destinations served by these airlines, be sure to bring your own masks.
