On Thursday (October 14, 2021), Norwegian Air announced that they will eliminate the face mask requirement for guests traveling within Scandinavia from Monday, October 18, 2021. Norwegian made this decision following the lifting of restrictions in Norway, Denmark and Sweden, as well as the lower risk of infection as COVID-19 subsides. The carrier originally introduced the mask requirement on June 17, 2020, following recommendations from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), but airline’s attitude has always been to maintain the requirement only as long as necessary. Naturally, customers who still wish to wear a mask are welcome to do so.

Norwegian will stain maintain the mask requirement for gusts traveling to other European destinations until further notice. Travelers are reminded that mask requirements still exist at most Nordic and European airports, and if a journey involves a stopover, masks may be required on the following flight segment. During October, the carrier is offering service on 159 popular domestic and international routes in Europe.

Norwegian Air Shuttle was founded in 1993 and offers smart and pleasant travel experiences at low prices. The airline has been voted ‘Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline’ by Skytrax for the last six years. Norwegian’s loyalty program, Norwegian Rewards, has also been voted ‘The Airline Industry’s Best Loyalty Program in Europe/Africa’ at the Freddie Awards four years in a row. In 2019, Norwegian became the first airline to sign the UN Climate Action Programme, committing to becoming climate neutral by 2050. The carrier currently offers affordable flights on a short-haul network of destinations in the Nordic countries and to key European destinations.
