Boarding pass issue & checking COVID-19 documents in the Health Pass
You can now upload your digital EU vaccination certificates and test results and get them checked in the Online Check-in. This means that boarding passes can again be issued for a multitude of flights. To do so, simply scan the QR code, for example using the camera function on your smartphone, or /us/upload the document in the Health Pass and get it verified there.
Who can use the new service?
The automatic digital health data check is currently available to passengers travelling to the following countries. The service is not available to passengers on connecting flights, travellers with COVID-19 recovery certificates or passengers resident in a country outside the EU (+ Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland, Vatican City, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, the USA and Canada). You will be issued your boarding pass at the airport. The Online Check-in is, of course, still available for you to use.
If you receive a notification that ”Your supporting documents do not meet the requirements for the destination country; please check your documents”, the submitted documents are not sufficient for your destination. In this case, please present your supporting documents at the airport and plan sufficient time for them to be checked. We are unfortunately unable to transport passengers without the correct documents. If your documents have been successfully saved in your Health Pass, we also recommend that you check them again before the start of your journey.
All passengers must take their original certificates with them on their trip, even if they have been successfully checked.
