After a long period of restrictive measures in aviation, we will no longer have to wear mouth caps in airplanes from Monday. The European RIVM (ECDC) and the European Aviation Authority (EASA) no longer recommend this. In recent times, some airlines have been less strict about wearing the mask in the plane.
The RIVM has yet to pronounce on the advice, but is also expected to give the green light for this relaxation. Because the recommendation is not binding, airlines can deviate from it. The relaxation is possible now that the majority of Europeans have been vaccinated against or cured of the corona virus, the ECDC, the European equivalent of the RIVM, and the aviation authority Easa say.
