Four steps to be better prepared for your trip

Use the digital document check until 8 hours before your flight to upload your proof of vaccination, a negative Covid-19 test result (PCR or antigen, max. one day old) and the Combined Passenger Disclosure and Attestation to the US.

Once you have received confirmation that your Covid-19 travel documents have been verified, check in online via our website or app from 23 hours before your flight and select your seat.

Be fully prepared and use your boarding pass to check in your baggage at our bag drop-off machines at many airports and so avoid queues at the check-in desks.

Please check the validity of all relevant entry documents (e.g. ESTA) in advance and carry them with you throughout your trip.

Please comply with the compulsory use of masks before and during the flight, as well as when leaving the aircraft.

Have a good flight.
