TUI has relaxed its face mask policy for passengers on board some of its flights.
Earlier this month, the tour operator abolished its mandatory face mask rule for passengers on TUI flights to and from England and Northern Ireland.
However, face coverings remained mandatory for people flying to and from Wales and Scotland.
But now the airline has updated its policy to extend the easing of its mandatory face mask policy to passengers flying to and from Wales.
The TUI website reads: “It is no longer a legal requirement for travelers to or from England, Wales or Northern Ireland to wear a face mask on their TUI Airways flight, but in line with UK Government guidance and the EU Charter however, we strongly encourage you to do so.”
The rule change has not been extended to Scotland, meaning passengers will still be required to wear a mask when flying to or from Scotland.
The website continued: “When flying to or from Scotland, everyone aged 12 and over must wear a face mask during the flight, including while sleeping, unless you are exempted due to a medical condition.
“Your face mask must cover your nose, mouth and chin. You can wear a face shield, but you must also wear a face mask.”
Other airlines have also abolished the mask requirement in recent weeks.
