Prepare your trip

Face masks

As of 21 May 2022, face masks are no longer mandatory on most KLM flights. However, we recommend that you wear a mask during your flight.

You might be required to wear a face mask at your destination or in the country you’re transferring in. Also, the rules for wearing a mask at the airport differ per country. Please make sure to check the requirements of the countries you are travelling to and the local rules of the airports before departure. If you are flying with KLM, you will also receive an e-mail in the week before departure with the details about the requirements at your destination.

During your flight

Good hygiene is and has always been our priority. We’ve taken extra measures when it comes to the cleaning and maintenance of our aircraft before you embark. Every day, our aircraft are thoroughly cleaned with approved disinfectants. During the flight, the air in our aircraft is continually renewed with fresh air drawn in from outside. Our aircraft are equipped with an air filtration system consisting of High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters which capture 99,99% of viruses and bacteria, including coronaviruses.
