Scandinavian air carriers ditch facemasks

Passengers will still be required to wear masks when flying to other European countries

Following a meeting between Scandinavian air carriers on 14th October, four airlines, SAS, Norwegian, Widerøe, and Flyr, announced that their passengers travelling between Norway, Sweden and Denmark, and on domestic flights, will no longer be required to wear facemasks.

Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) is Scandinavia’s largest carrier and their policy also applies to unvaccinated passengers.

“We believe the time is right now based on the infection situation in the country. We are also following the situation in Europe.” said the SAS press manager John Eckhoff in an interview.

Nowegian Air released a statement. “Norwegian’s attitude has been to maintain the mask requirement for as short a period of time as possible – Those who still want to use face masks are of course welcome to do so.”
