All Norwegian Airlines Remove Face Mask Requirements For Domestic Flights and Within Scandinavia


Common sense is trending in Scandinavia.

Countries in the region have dropped their COVID-19 restrictions and life has returned to the real normal.

Scandinavian countries also stopped administering the Moderna COVID-19 jab to younger populations, citing the risk of myocarditis.

In the latest return to sanity, Norwegian-based airlines dropped mask requirements for domestic flights and to other Scandinavian countries.

Check it out:

Norway Today reported:

As of Monday, there will no longer be a requirement for face masks for travelers at SAS, Norwegian, Widerøe, and Flyr, domestically and in Scandinavia.

“We believe the time is right now based on the infection situation in the country. We are also following the situation in Europe. It is natural for us to follow Norwegian infection control rules,” press manager John Eckhoff in SAS told TV 2.

Norwegian will do the same, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) writes.

“But what is important to point out is that passengers who are going to travel should be aware that there will be requirements for face masks at Gardermoen and many other airports,” communications director Esben Tuman in Norwegian stated.

Flyr and Widerøe have also decided to remove the face mask requirement from and including Monday, October 18.

“We look forward to being able to receive new and old passengers with a big smile, without a face mask, on Monday. Welcome on board,” Widerøe’s director of communication and public relations, Silje Brandvoll, stated.

Gardermoen is the international airport serving Oslo.

It’s the busiest airport in Norway and many foreign airlines enter/exit the country via Gardermoen.

While there may still be mask policies at Gardermoen, Norwegian airline companies ended their mask requirement for flights within Scandinavia.

That includes flights between Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.

From Sveriges Radio:

  • Airlines SAS and Norwegian will drop their requirement for travelers to wear face masks on flights within and between Scandinavia on October 18.
  • Passengers flying outside of Sweden, Norway and Denmark will still have to wear one.
  • Freja Annamatz, the head of media relations at SAS in Sweden, says the change comes after the three countries have removed most or all of their Covid-19 restrictions.
