Ever since a federal judge in Florida voided the U.S. transportation mask mandate yesterday, there has been a whirlwind of news.
The judge ruled that the mask mandate for public transportation was “exceeding the authority of U.S. health officials” and shortly after, the TSA shared that they would no longer enforce mask-wearing on public transport. So what’s it like if you’re flying? Well, it seems that it may vary by airline.
According to USAToday, some airlines have already announced that they’re removing mask mandates. According to announcements made within the past day, the following airlines are no longer requiring face masks for travelers:
- American Airlines
- Delta Air Lines
- United Airlines
- Southwest Airlines
- Alaska Airlines
- JetBlue Airways
- Frontier Airlines
- Spirit Airlines
- Hawaiian Airlines
- Sun Country Airlines
- Avelo Airlines
- Breeze Airways
Keep in mind that these rules may vary for international flights, depending on the mask regulations of the country that you’re flying into. We advise you to check the website of your airlines before your flight to familiarize yourself with the specific policy before flying.
