See considerations.

Scope:

Airports and flights operated in Brazil

Date of Implementation:

March 25, 2021

Considerations:

The new ANVISA requirements refer to the mandatory masks wearing in the airport facilities and on the aircraft.

 

Masks wearing is mandatory, except for the following cases:

 

  • Children under 3 years of age.
  • Children under 12 years of age (only in places intended for feeding / hydration in the airport facilities).
  • Older adults from 60 years of age.
  • Passengers with autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, sensory disability or any other disability that prevents them from wearing the mask correctly (requires MEDIF certification).

Meals on board:

 

  • Minor passengers between 0 and 12 years of age and passengers over 60 years of age may eat on board. This practice is only allowed on domestic flights.

ANVISA requires that masks contain at least a double protective layer.

 

Passengers must respect the restrictions imposed by the health authorities of each country.

 

Example: SCL-GRU-BOG. In this case, the passenger must be informed about the measures applied at each point of the trip.

 

These measures are incorporated to the policies applied in the Change of Mask standards on LATAM flights (available only in portuguese and spanish) published on 02/05/21.

Exception:
