American airlines are banning fabric and vented masks

  • by Jialiang Li

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently changed its guidelines to say vented masks do not help prevent the spread of COVID-19 causing airlines to ban this type of face covering.

American Airlines is the latest carrier that has banned the use of such masks after Alaska, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest, Spirit and United have already done so.

Furthermore, starting Aug. 16, Finnair, the air carrier known for connecting flights between Europe and Asia, will require all passengers on board to wear surgical masks, the airline said, joining Lufthansa and Air France in prohibiting fabric face coverings on flights.
