And now Australia has announced that they will drop their in-flight mask mandate on September 9th.

Other countries requiring masks on flights include Canada, China, Fiji, Indonesia, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, and Spain.

Yeah when I was there people acted as if it was also the law when travelling by car alone


I suspect New Zealand will be next.


Canada will be the very last country to drop masks. I’m thinking maybe 2032 or so. I agree NZ will likely go along with Australia.


What about Air France? They say that “ they may be required on board or at the airport depending on your departing and destination countries.” Does that mean flight to or from JFK require a mask?


hong kong still requires masks on flights to and from there


I was just on Lufthansa flights connecting via Frankfurt Germany to/from US/Israel. They were requiring EITHER N95 or surgical. They also weren’t so strict about it in flight.
