Regarding persons travelling to Denmark by air

Passengers travelling by air are required to wear a mask or a visor during the entire journey, both in the airport and on board the plane. This requirement applies to domestic air travel within Denmark as well.

This requirement is due to the Danish aviation sector following the European guidelines for aviation.
