In response to President Biden’s Executive Order Mandating Masks on Airplanes and in Airports, George Novak, President and CEO of the National Air Carrier Association issued the following statement:
NACA applauds President Biden for the issuance of the Executive Order Promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel — particularly the provisions requiring that masks be worn on commercial aircraft and in airports. This is a critical and long-overdue step to ensure the safety of passengers, crewmembers and those working at airports and to eliminate any lingering uncertainty regarding mask requirements in commercial aviation. NACA carriers look forward to working collaboratively with Transportation Secretary nominee Pete Buttigieg, FAA Administrator Steve Dickson, their staff and other aviation stakeholders to quickly develop the necessary regulations and practices to implement and enforce this crucial and timely mandate.
