Masks No Longer Mandatory In U.S. Airports, On Airplanes
As of Monday, April 18th, 2022, the TSA will no longer enforce the security directive requiring masks on public transportation or in transportation hubs such as airports.
It is up to individual airlines to set policies for masking on planes.
American Airlines states, “The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to recommend that people wear a face mask in indoor public transportation settings, but they aren’t required to be worn in airport settings or on your flight unless an individual jurisdiction has these requirements.”
