The following 14 countries still require mandatory face mask wearing on public transport.

  • Austria
  • Cyprus
  • Estonia
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Italy
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Luxemburg

Ryanair’s CEO Eddie Wilson said, “We welcome this rule relaxation from EASA and the ECDC effective from Monday, 16th May next. From that date, face masks will be optional on all Ryanair flights except those flights to/from the 14 EU States where masks remain mandatory on public transport.

We expect these States to relax their face mask rules over the coming days in line with these new health guidelines from EASA and the ECDC. Intending passengers can check the latest EU face mask regulations on the Re-Open EU website.”
