Travel and mask wearing


I have a 16 year old autistic child and have a trip planned for late August. I am very co corned about the mask wearing and when we discussed it I could tell he was also unsure and uncomfortable.

I have emailed both airports and airlines and Manchester were great and will sort him a lanyard. Jet2 replied today to say he will have to which goes agaibst the Govt guidance from Transport Minister. Ryanair still to reply as have Spanish airport. However Spain have similar exeption to UK.

Has anyone any experience of this and travelled recently? 

Advice greatly received please as really stressing about it. My son is really looking forward to trip.

Thanks in advance.
