Face mask policy on our flights
Wearing a mask on our flights is optional, unless it is required by the authorities of your destination or origin country or the operating airline of your flight.
As coronavirus pandemic is moving to a new phase and coronavirus related restrictions are being removed across countries, we at Finnair have lifted the requirement to wear a face mask on board our flights.
Wearing a mask on our flights is optional, unless it is required by the authorities of your destination or origin country or the operating airline of your flight. Please check your origin and destination countries’ mask requirement details from the local authorities’ and airports’ websites. Please note that requirements are subject to change on short notice.

*It is good to know that Iberia, operating our Madrid and Barcelona routes, requires wearing a face mask onboard their flights also when flying from Spain. You can read more here.
On flights where using a mask is an authority requirement, you are required to wear a mask throughout the flight. You can remove your mask for a short, limited time when eating or drinking.
On all other Finnair flights, masks are voluntary for both crew and customers. The aircraft is a low-risk environment, thanks to the effective air conditioning. You can, of course, choose to wear a mask while travelling to have additional protection for personal reasons. FFP2 and FFP3 masks are proven to give excellent, more than 95% protection, even if others around you are not using masks.
