Following national health and safety guidelines, some international airlines have changed their masking policies to allow travelers the choice of whether to wear them on a particular flight.

In the United States, Transportation Security Administration Expanded masking requirements Until April 18 for public transportation, including buses, trains, planes and transportation. It is unclear whether the mission will be extended again as the deadline approaches.

As a result, you will still need a mask on flights within the United States, but whether or not you need to wear a mask on international flights is different.

Below is a list of airlines that have changed their Maskman dates so far.

British Airways

The airline allows customers to fly without a mask if the destination does not require a mask.

“For destinations where we have confirmed that we are not required to wear a face cover, we are able to make personal choices and please respect each other’s preferences,” the airline said in the guidance.

The required face mask is not required for flights across the Norwegian network. In other words, passengers can choose whether or not to wear a face mask on board.

Virgin Atlantic

Travelers to Barbados, Saint Lucia, Antigua, Grenada, The Bahamas, Jamaica, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago on Virgin Atlantic can wear face masks.

Guidelines are different for each destination, so you will need a face cover for other routes as well. According to the airline’s website, this list is expected to grow as the regulatory requirements for destinations change.

“This policy is being gradually introduced to both customers and crew, and only on routes that are not subject to international restrictions on wearing masks …” the airline said in a statement. “We recommend that everyone respect the tastes of passenger masks. Masks will continue to be available for those who want to wear them.”
