Travelling with children
Children under the age of six are allowed to travel without wearing a face mask; older children must wear a face mask at the airport and on board.
On flights to and from the USA, children aged two and over must also wear a face mask.
Please note that at some airports it is compulsory to wear a medical face mask (FFP2, FFP3, KN95 and N95 standard or surgical masks) in the shops, on public transport and sometimes also in the terminal building. Fabric face masks are no longer permitted. Visors and masks with valves have already been prohibited.
