The use of face masks is to remain mandatory for passengers on all flights to and from Spanish airports and public transport

The Spanish authorities have decided to keep the mandatory mask requirements for airlines and public transport until March 2023. This means that until this measure gets dropped, all persons, including foreigners visiting Spain, will have to wear a face mask when accessing buses, trains, metros, taxis, and planes.

The decision to continue keeping the mask requirement in place was taken after the authorities evaluated the current situation and concluded that it is not the right time to lift such a requirement, especially now that colder months are approaching.

In addition to the above-mentioned, the health authority of Spain said that the country is taking the same approach as Germany, suggesting that the country might also re-introduce the face mask requirement for indoor public places. That decision will be based on data from health authorities.

Before the decision to extend the mandatory face mask requirement was announced, the Health Emergencies chief of Spain said that it is better to see how the Coronavirus disease evolves before deciding to ease this requirement.

Since the authorities have decided not to revise this measure until March 2023, it could mean that they expect the number of infection cases to start increasing.
