Lufthansa Introduces Mandatory Face Mask For Passengers
With effect from 8 June, 2020, it will be mandatory for Lufthansa passengers to wear mouth and nose protection on all flights to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Passengers will be required to wear mouth and nose protecting while boarding, during the flight and when leaving the aircraft.
The face-mask obligation does not apply to children up to the age of six years old or to persons who are unable to wear a mask due to health reasons or because of a disability.
The mask may be temporarily removed for consumption of food and beverages on board, for communicating with the hearing-impaired, for identification purposes and for other necessary purposes that are incompatible with wearing mouth and nose protection.
To cover the mouth and nose, so-called everyday masks made of fabric and medical masks can be used.
This rule initially applies to Lufthansa, Eurowings and Lufthansa Cityline. Other Lufthansa Group airlines are currently examining whether they will adopt this rule.
