The Italian government confirmed that its mask mandate on airplanes will remain in place until 15 June following news that the EU will no longer make air travelers wear masks from 16 May.

Under the new guidelines, the EU will end its obligation to wear masks in airports and on planes from next Monday amid the easing of covid restrictions across the bloc.

Although the new EU recommendations take effect on 16 May, masks can still be required on planes by member states and mask-wearing rules may still vary from airline to airline.

The Italian health ministry moved to clarify its rules last night in the wake of the news, stressing that FFP2 masks would continue to be required on planes in Italy until 15 June, reports Corriere della Sera.

In addition to public transport, masks must continue to be worn until 15 June in Italy’s cinemas and theaters, hospitals and care homes, indoor sporting events and concerts, schools and universities.
