Norwegian, SAS, and Widerøe have no plans to remove the face mask requirement on aircraft despite the reopening of Norway. The face mask requirement will also stay in place at Oslo Airport.
“After the press conference about the reopening of Norway, face mask requirements will stay in place at Oslo Airport,” Oslo Airport stated on Facebook.
The face mask requirement at the airport is currently the only local measure in Ullensaker.
The Norwegian, SAS, and Widerøe airlines stated that the face mask requirement on board the aircraft would remain even if it is abolished for other public transport.
Following EASA recommendations
“For the time being, we are following the recommendations of the European Aviation Authorities (EASA). We have been doing this since the beginning of the pandemic.
“At the moment, there is no indication that their advice will change. Even though the restrictions have now been eased in Norway and have been for a while in Denmark, there is still a pandemic in Europe,” press officer Andreas Hjørnholm in Norwegian stated.
Norwegian, SAS, and Widerøe don’t plan to ease face masks requirement on domestic flights either.
