Do I have to wear a face mask?

  • To ensure safety and well-being, it is mandatory for all travelers from the age of 6 years to wear face masks, that covers both mouth and nose, when travelling to Canada.

  • Wearing a face mask is mandatory for the entire journey, from onboarding until you leave the aircraft.

  • You must bring your own face mask that covers nose and mouth. SAS accepts single-use medical face masks. Homemade face masks or fabric masks / cloth face coverings are not accepted. Face masks that are allowed on board include single-use masks of FFP2, KN95, N95 standards or surgical masks such as IIR or similar. Protection made out of cloth, visors or covers with ventilation valves are not permitted on board.

  • To keep social distance at the airport we recommend getting face masks before leaving for the airport.

  • While onboard, you are always required to wear the face mask, except when eating or drinking.

  • Our staff onboard wear protective face masks covering mouth and nose.

  • SAS recommends that passengers bring several masks in order to be able to change the mask during longer flights, as a face mask is only valid for four hours. It is also important to be aware that you may be required to wear a mask at your destination.

  • If you has a medical condition that restricts you from wearing a face mask covering mouth and nose, you must present a document from a medical doctor stating the reason for not wearing a face mask. This must be written in a Scandinavian language or in English and shall not be older than three months. You will also need a proof of a negative SARS Cov-2 test (PCR or Antigen test) not older than 48 hours. You will need to present the documents to the gate staff before boarding the aircraft. Failure to do so will lead to denied boarding.
