Norwegian Air is to remove the requirement for passengers to wear face masks from Monday (April 4).
The mandatory rule will be lifted for the first time since June 17, 2020, on every flight across the budget carrier’s network as a result of revised guidance across Europe.
Passengers will now be able to choose if they wish to wear a face mask or not as countries reduce or completely remove Covid travel restrictions.
The carrier said it had noticed increased passenger demand and optimism to book ahead for both leisure and business travel since February 12 when the requirements were first lifted across Scandinavia.
Norwegian Air is confident that travel will recover and thrive during the summer months ahead.
The airline said: “Norwegian advises all passengers to check the local requirements and guidance at their destination before traveling, including stops and connecting flights in Europe.
“It is the responsibility of the passenger to comply with local regulations and restrictions. Those who still wish to wear a face mask on board are welcome to do so.”
