Both the airport operator Finavia and the airline Finnair have announced that the mask requirement will be lifted. Accordingly, travellers on board of Finnair flights and at Finavia's airports will no longer have to wear mouth-nose protection.
Lifting of mask requirement on Finnair with exceptions
From 25 April, both passengers and crew members will no longer be required to wear face masks on board. An exception applies if this is explicitly required by the authorities of the country of destination or origin.
Passengers can view the list of countries where the wearing of masks on board is mandatory on the Finnair website. For example, on domestic flights and on flights to and from Scandinavia, the wearing of masks is not required. To and from Asia, as well as in some European countries, the wearing of a face mask is still mandatory on flights.
Lifting of mandatory wearing of face masks by Finavia
The use of face masks has been dropped at Finavia airports since 21 April. In addition, announcements asking passengers to wear a face mask have been discontinued. Finavia advises that it will take some time to remove signs in the terminals.
The wearing of a face mask is of course still permitted in the airports and is recommended at one's own discretion.
