Article nameIs wearing a mask mandatory?

Yes. In order to keep our passengers and employees safe, as of May 11th, 2020, the use of masks is  mandatory for all our flights, both at the airport and on board our planes.

This means that if you have a domestic or international flight, you must wear the mask throughout your entire trip.  Those who do not follow this rule will not be able to board.

On the day of your trip, remember to bring your own mask, as they will not be distributed at airports.

The permitted masks are: traditional surgical mask, N95 and KN95 type (without valves), fabric handmade mask.

The following types of masks are forbidden in LATAM flights: any face mask with valves, fabric handkerchiefs or bandanas, scarves or masks made of woven material (wool-yarn), plastic mouth guard.

All flights within Peru (domestic) and international flights to, from and connecting in Peru additionally require the use of a face shield.

We suggest following the manufacturer's recommendation regarding the time of use, remembering that a mask should be discarded and replaced if it becomes dirty, wet or deteriorated. For long-duration flights it is advisable to bring extra masks for replacement.

 

Exceptions

No passenger will be allowed on the plane without properly using a mask, except infants 0-2 years.

People with medical conditions that make the use of a mask impossible, must process a medical certification

The use of masks will be made more flexible in the case of minors between the ages of 2-11 years*.

*The exemption mentioned above may change in some countries or zones where the local authorities do not permit these kinds of flexibilities.
