Australian Airports Association (AAA) stated (08-Jan-2021) Australia‘s National Cabinet decision to make face masks compulsory across all parts of the aviation sector is a common sense approach. A recent survey commissioned by the AAA showed the majority of travelling Australians would be more confident to fly if face masks were mandatory. Key details include:
- 83% would wear a facemask travelling domestically;
- 71% would be more confident to fly domestically if facemasks were mandatory;
- 89% would support mandatory facemasks in international airport terminals;
- 82% were willing to undergo a rapid COVID test before travelling internationally.
The online survey was completed by 500 Australians between 14-Dec-2020 and 18-Dec-2020.
