Croatia Airlines lifts protective face mask requirements

As of April 9th, 2022, Croatia Airlines, in accordance with the recommendations of the National Civil Protection Directorate, abolished the obligation to wear face protection masks on all flights. This information was confirmed to AvioRadar by the national airline. The decision applies to passengers and crew, although wearing protective masks is still recommended, especially for people who are at increased risk of contracting the Covid-19 virus.

The obligation to wear masks on all Croatia Airlines flights was introduced on May 20, 2020, and after almost two full years of flying in extraordinary circumstances, passengers and crew will be able to decide for themselves whether to wear a mask for personal protection or not. Also, the Croatian Civil Aviation Agency (CCAA) repealed the provision (order) ASO-2020-007 which defined the mandatory disinfection of aircraft. However, we unofficially find out that Croatia Airlines will continue to practice disinfection of aircraft in case of suspicion that an infected passenger was traveling in the aircraft.
