Norwegian removes face masks requirement on all flights
Norwegian is pleased to announce that the temporary requirement to wear face masks on board all flights will be lifted from Monday 4th of April.
For the first time since June 17th 2020, the mandatory requirement of wearing a face mask will be lifted on every flight across the Norwegian network as a result of revised guidance across Europe. As countries reduce or completely remove travel restrictions, thanks to extensive vaccination programmes, passengers will now be able to choose if they wish to wear a face mask or not.
As of February 12th, when the requirements were first lifted across Scandinavia, the company has noticed increased passenger demand and optimism in regards to booking ahead for both leisure and business travel . The company is confident that travel will recover and thrive during the summer months ahead.
Norwegian advises all passengers to check the local requirements and guidance at their destination before traveling, including stops and connecting flights in Europe. It is the responsibility of the passenger to comply with local regulations and restrictions. Those who still wish to wear a face mask on board are welcome to do so.
Norwegian was founded in 1993 but began operating as a low-cost carrier with Boeing 737 aircraft in 2002. Since then, our mission has been to offer affordable fares for all and to allow customers to travel the smart way by offering value and choice throughout their journey.
Norwegian has been voted Europe’s Best Low-Cost airline by Skytrax for six consecutive years and won Airline Program of the Year Europe & Africa at the Freddie Awards for four consecutive years. Since 2012, Norwegian has won over 55 awards for our service, product, and innovation in the industry.
We were the first airline in the world to join the UN Climate Secretariat’s climate action-initiative in 2019, pledging to work systematically to become carbon neutral by 2050.
Norwegian operates a short haul network across the Nordics and to key European destinations providing customers with excellent quality at affordable fares.
