CEOs at 10 airlines and cargo carriers want President Joe Biden to end the mask mandates on airplanes and the testing requirement for international travelers.
In a new letter, industry group Airlines for America wrote, "now is the time for the Administration to sunset federal transportation travel restrictions -- including the international predeparture testing requirement and the federal mask mandate -- that are no longer aligned with the realities of the current epidemiological environment."
The CEOs of Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Atlas Air Worldwide, Delta Air Lines, FedEx Express, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, and UPS Airlines signed the letter.
Earlier this month, the White House moved the end of the mask mandate to April 18.
