Cathay Pacific has become the latest airline to make the wearing of face masks mandatory, where physical distancing cannot be maintained.
From 15 May 2020, passengers are required to wear face masks in situations where they cannot maintain a physical distance of 2 metres from others, or as directed by airline employees. This includes during check-in; in lounges; during boarding; in the aircraft cabin; and during disembarkation.
Passengers who are unable to tolerate a face mask, including young children, are exempt from this requirement.
Passengers are asked to bring their own appropriate face mask, either cloth or disposable, to wear throughout their journey.
This face mask requirement will remain mandatory until further notice.
