A European recommendation for people to wear face masks for air travel has been scrapped.
The decision by the European Aviation Safety Agency and European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) will take effect next week.
They say it's down to the current levels of vaccination and natural immunity, along with the lifting of restrictions across member states.
It's now up to individual governments and airlines to update their own rules.
In a statement, ECDC Director Andrea Ammon said, "While risks do remain, we have seen that non-pharmaceutical interventions and vaccines have allowed our lives to begin to return to normal.
"While mandatory mask-wearing in all situations is no longer recommended, it is important to be mindful that together with physical distancing and good hand hygiene it is one of the best methods of reducing transmission.
"The rules and requirements of departure and destination States should be respected and applied consistently, and travel operators should take care to inform passengers of any required measures in a timely manner.
"The importance of these measures should continue to be effectively communicated to passengers for their safety, and ECDC will continue to work with our colleagues at EASA to regularly assess and amend the recommendations as necessary."
