Carrier restrictions due to coronavirus
Due to the global coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), carriers are implementing new travel restrictions to prevent the spread of the virus. Some carriers have temporarily suspended all operations, others require a health certificate, face mask, or a medical check to allow boarding.
Travelers who are currently travelling or need to travel in the upcoming days should monitor the situation closely. New restrictions may be introduced at any moment. Travelers should check if their trip is still scheduled before they travel. This is possible to do by checking carrier websites and flight status updates, airport websites, or tracking the flight number for the scheduled date.
In our efforts to provide our partners with as accurate information as possible given frequent changes in the situation, we are sharing all the available information to allow our partners to anticipate travel disruptions and offer guidance to our passengers.
