Stop the masks on the plane from Monday 16 May. But in Italy the obligation remains in force until June 15th. According to an update of the travel safety measures, published by the European Union Agency for Aviation Safety (Easa) and by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (Ecdc), the protective device will not be more mandatory on flights in the European Union and at airports, even if “the mask remains one of the best defenses against the transmission of Covid-19”, and using it is strongly recommended for those who cough or sneeze, as well as for all frail people. However, the rules on the mask will depend on the airline you are traveling with. In particular, for “flights to or from a destination where the use of the mask on public transport is still required, aircraft operators should continue to request the use of the device, according to the recommendations”. For those who leave and arrive in the Peninsula, therefore, the ordinance of the end of April of the Minister of Health Roberto Speranza applies, which has extended until June 15 the obligation to wear the Ffp2 mask on all long-distance means of transport including planes.
