Since Monday, wearing a mask is no longer compulsory in public transport: metro, trains, buses, but also planes.

A measure that made many passengers happy.

In the arrivals terminal at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport, there are almost no more masks on the faces, but smiles instead.

Elie arrives from a correspondence in Marrakech and she learned the good news in full flight.

"We were warned at midnight on the plane! It was great, especially for sleeping," she rejoices at the microphone of Europe 1, while pulling her suitcases.

A return to life

This return to life before was eagerly awaited, especially by passengers on long-haul flights.

Loïc comes out of a ten-hour flight between Los Angeles and Paris, and for him it changes everything: "We live again! Especially with the children, it's really pleasant."

Alan, who leaves the same flight, shares this feeling: "It's really pleasant and it makes you want to start a conversation with our neighbors. You can see the faces!"

Caution for some

But some are still cautious and do not intend to withdraw it for the moment.

This is the case of Alexandre who kept his mask on throughout the flight.

“I personally believe that the virus is still circulating, so I prefer to keep it on me, for the moment”, he explains.

Barbara, too, kept it on her nose.

“My neighbor was only coughing, I admit that I was a little scared…”, she laughs.

Some companies continue to require the wearing of a mask for fear of Covid-19 contamination.
