As part of efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, Malaysia Airlines will require customers to wear face masks onboard their aircraft.
Effective April 23, the Kuala Lumpur-based airline will require travelers to bring their own masks excluding infants on all its international, domestic, and charter flights.
On their Facebook page, the airline will accept single-ply mask, three-ply mask, cloth mask or reusable mask. It will be required to be used on during check-in, boarding, inflight, and upon arrival at the airport including at the baggage claim.
“For passengers’ own comfort, especially on long haul flights, you are advised to bring additional masks and hand sanitizers for your own use,” the airline said in a statement.
The airline is recommending customers traveling on long-haul flights to change their face masks every four hours.
