Face Masks Will Be Required When Flying With Aer Lingus From May 21

Aer Lingus has announced that all of its customers will be required to use a mask or suitable face covering from the point of boarding their flight until they are inside their destination airport from Thursday May 21.

"A Temporary Measure"

The airline stated, "This is a temporary measure to enable us to collectively play our part in keeping everyone safe on board.

Wearing of face coverings is mandatory while boarding and for the duration of the flight. Customers who are unable to keep a face covering in place, including children, are exempt from the mandatory application of the policy.

"We recommend that customers consider wearing a face covering from the time of entry into the departure airport.

"Our cabin crew will also be wearing suitable face coverings during flight."
