FAQs on the wearing of face masks

Adjustment of the facemask obligation as of 1 February  

Lufthansa is adapting the obligation to wear mouth-nose covers while travelling. From 1 February 2021, only facemasks of the following standards will be permitted on flights to and from Germany: FFP2, KN95 and N95 standard or surgical masks. These have to be worn during boarding, on board and when leaving the aircraft. Masks made of fabric will no longer be permitted, visors and masks with valves have not been permitted already. Thus, in order to protect the health of all passengers and employees, the Lufthansa Group Airlines are taking up the regulation the German federal states have issued on 19 January 2021.

Exceptions to this regulation can still be made for health reasons. An exception will only be accepted, if the passenger can present a current (not older than 48 hours) negative Covid-19 test result in connection with a medical certificate on the Lufthansa Group form.
