Masks are no longer required on flights from Monday

From Monday, health officials will no longer demand the use of masks on flights to Malta, following recommendations from the EU’s health and aviation agencies.
The agencies said on Wednesday that they will no longer recommend that medical masks be used in airports or on flights.
From Monday masks will only be mandatory in hospitals and in care homes.
“From next week, face masks will no longer need to be mandatory in air travel in all cases, broadly aligning with the changing requirements of national authorities across Europe for public transport,” said EASA Executive Director Patrick Ky.
“For passengers and air crews, this is a big step forward in the normalisation of air travel. Passengers should however behave responsibly and respect the choices of others around them. And a passenger who is coughing and sneezing should strongly consider wearing a face mask, for the reassurance of those seated nearby.”
