From 1 Feb, the whole of the Lufthansa Group (including Lufthansa, Swiss, Austrian will require masks as follows:
passengers will be required to wear either a surgical mask or an FFP2 mask or mask with the KN95/N95 standard during boarding, the flight and when leaving the aircraft. Everyday masks are then no longer permitted.
The requirement means that made at home, or masks other than these are not going to be acceptable when flying to or from Germany.
Exemptions, which LH are spelling out are quite limited – no more ‘I’m exempt’ stickers purchased from Amazon:
As before, an exemption from the obligation to wear a mouth-nose covering during the flight for medical reasons is only possible if the medical certificate is issued on a form provided by Lufthansa and a negative Covid 19 test is available that is not older than 48 hours at the scheduled start of the journey.
Will other airlines follow suit?
