CAL further warned that customers will be denied boarding if they fail to comply.

"This requirement is compulsory. Refusal to comply, shall result in customers being denied boarding by the airline; except in the case of children under the age of 2 years, or adults who have a medical condition which prevents them from using a mask."

It added that any special exemptions would need to be endorsed by a medical practitioner and approved by CAL before travel.
