Air France and KLM to require face masks for passengers, KLM resumes some Europe routes
Air France and KLM are set to enforce a new policy that requires all passengers to wear face masks throughout their journey to slow the spread of the coronavirus. For Air France, crew will also be required to wear face masks.
As of 11 May 2020, all passengers with Air France and KLM will be required to wear a facemask. The move to require face masks for passengers follows the French government’s instruction that everyone is required to wear face masks on public transport, as well as Dutch guidelines.
For both carriers, prior to a passenger’s flight, they’ll be notified of the face mask requirement to ensure they have one when they show up at the airport for their flight. KLM says that the face mask requirement will be in effect for all passengers until 31 August 2020.
