As of Monday, there will no longer be a requirement for face masks for travelers at SAS, Norwegian, Widerøe, and Flyr, domestically and in Scandinavia.
“We believe the time is right now based on the infection situation in the country. We are also following the situation in Europe. It is natural for us to follow Norwegian infection control rules,” press manager John Eckhoff in SAS told TV 2.
Norwegian will do the same, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) writes.
“But what is important to point out is that passengers who are going to travel should be aware that there will be requirements for face masks at Gardermoen and many other airports,” communications director Esben Tuman in Norwegian stated.
Flyr and Widerøe have also decided to remove the face mask requirement from and including Monday, October 18.
“We look forward to being able to receive new and old passengers with a big smile, without a face mask, on Monday. Welcome on board,” Widerøe’s director of communication and public relations, Silje Brandvoll, stated.
On Widerøe’s routes to Alicante, the Faroe Islands, Aberdeen, and London, the mandatory face mask use will remain in place until further notice.
