EasyJet is the latest airline to announce a relaxation of its mask-wearing policy.
From Sunday, passengers and crew will no longer be required to wear masks on board flights if it is not required by law at either end of the route.
This means that the mandatory wearing of masks on UK domestic flights – with the exception of routes to and from Scotland, where face covering rules will still apply – and on flights between the UK and Denmark, Gibraltar, Iceland and Hungary will be removed.
Several other airlines have relaxed their mask-wearing rules in recent weeks, including British Airways, Jet2.com and Tui Airways.
Aer Lingus and Ryanair continue to require passengers to wear masks on board aircraft and Dublin Airport requires passengers to wear masks throughout their airport journey.

EasyJet said in a statement: “As a pan-European airline operating in over 30 countries, we must continue to ensure that we and our customers follow the legal requirements of every country we fly to.
“This means that when flying to or from countries where masks are still compulsory, we will follow the relevant legal requirements.
“We urge European governments to take a coordinated approach to lifting the requirement where possible, to make it simple and clear for customers.
“We will endeavor to provide customers with clear information on the specific mask requirements on their flight, including on board.”
