Full list of passengers on Ryanair flights MUST continue to wear masks following a major rule change

RYANAIR will lift face mask rules on EU flights from next week – but not for every country.

It comes just hours after the European Union Aviation Safety Agency and the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control announced that face masks will be allowed at airports and on flights in Europe from June 16.

The move is a recommendation, but it is now up to individual governments and airlines to decide whether to change their own rules and recommendations.

This means individual airlines may still require masks to be worn on flights.

And Ryanair has confirmed travelers to 15 countries will continue to require passengers to wear a face mask on flights – and many of them are popular holiday hotspots.

The exception is the 15 EU countries in which masks are still compulsory on public transport.

The 15 nations that Ryanair will continue to implement face mask rules on flights to and from are:

  • Austria
  • Cyprus
  • Czech Republic
  • Estonia
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Italy
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Luxembourg
  • Malta
  • Netherlands
  • Portugal
  • Spain

However, Ryanair said those countries could change their rules in the next few days.

Ryanair CEO Eddie Wilson said: “We welcome this relaxation of rules by EASA and ECDC from Monday.

“From this date, face masks will be optional on all Ryanair flights, except for flights to/from the 15 EU countries, where masks will remain mandatory on public transport.

“We expect these states to relax their face mask rules in line with these new health guidelines from EASA and ECDC in the coming days.

“Intended passengers can check the latest EU face mask rules on the Re-Open EU website.”

CONTROL SWITCH

Meanwhile, European health officials urged passengers to continue wearing a mask if they had cold symptoms and said they should also follow the recommendations of each airline they travel with.

EASA Executive Director Patrick Ky said: “From next week, face masks will no longer have to be mandatory in all cases when traveling by air, largely in line with the changing requirements of national authorities across Europe for public transport.

“For passengers and flight crew, this is a major step forward in normalizing air travel.

“However, passengers should behave responsibly and respect the decisions of others around them.

“And a passenger who is coughing and sneezing should strongly consider wearing a face mask to reassure those seated nearby.”

Meanwhile, Irish holidaymakers are being urged not to book flights until they receive their renewed passports.

This is due to a large backlog at the passport office as people across the island scramble to get their renewals ahead of the summer holidays.
