KLM said passengers are required to wear a face mask until at least August 31, 2020, unless they are under 10 years old or unable to wear it for medical reasons.
On his website, he said: “Without a face mask, we cannot allow you to board. We strongly recommend that you also wear a mask in the rest of the airport.
Face masks are mandatory at the airport in some destinations, including Amsterdam Airport Schiphol where passengers aged 13 and over are required to wear a mask during check-in, during security checks, at the boarding gate and in areas where it is not possible to stay 1.5 meters from other passengers.
During the flight, passengers can remove the mask if they eat or drink, but it is advisable to keep this period as short as possible.
