The UK’s largest regional airline has today confirmed that despite the easing of Coronavirus restrictions, it will still require passengers to wear a mask on its flights after 19th July.

The airline led the way with mask wearing being the first in the UK to require it for all passengers, unless exempt.

But the airline says that as it flies to all four UK nations, the possibility of different regulations in each country show the sensible and safest option as being to continue to require masks.

Loganair’s Chief Operations Officer Maurice Boyle said: “Safety and security is always Loganair’s top priority. We believe that a consistent policy across our route network will provide assurance and confidence for each and every customer – and that confidence has been at the forefront of Loganair’s efforts to fly continuously throughout the pandemic to deliver essential connectivity across the UK. Therefore, unless a customer is medically exempt from the need to wear a face covering, we’ll be keeping the requirement to wear one in place on every Loganair flight. We’ll keep this under regular review and communicate future changes when the time is right for those to be made.”

So far, only England has said Masks will no longer be compulsory after 19th July.
