SAS announced earlier this week that its passengers will no longer be required to wear protective face masks.

And today, Atlantic Airways announced that its mask mandate will expire on 1 November.

“We have good ventilation in our cabins, and we have so far not registered any Covid infections on board our aircraft,” says Atlantic CEO Jóhanna á Bergi.

Low infection risk

Chief medical officer Lars Fodgaard Møller confirms that the risk of Covid-19 spread inside aeroplane cabins is low.

“What is much more concerning is that only 20 percent of air passengers take the recommended follow-up test two days after arriving in the Faroes”, he says.
