Mobile check-in possible again on many flights
Checking in is becoming more convenient again: On all 2000 weekly flights from non-risk areas of the Schengen area (currently from Spain, Italy or Sweden, for example) to Germany, travelers can once again have their boarding pass issued directly on their smartphone when checking in. This is made possible by the automatic and digital verification of EU vaccination certificates, which prove full vaccination protection, and Covid-19 test results from the CENTOGENE laboratory.
During mobile check-in, the QR codes of the paper certificates can now be scanned and thus checked quickly and conveniently. This means that the digital boarding pass can be issued and an additional document check at the check-in counter at the airport is no longer necessary.
But the following also applies to many other flights: You can have the certificates you need for your trip checked for completeness and correctness by a Lufthansa Service Center up to 72 hours before departure. These can be proof of tests, a survived Covid-19 disease and vaccinations. Confirmations of digital entry applications can also be checked in this way. Thanks to new digital solutions, the check is now also partly automatic and therefore much faster, also at the Service Center.
Please note that in addition to the digital proofs, the printed original certificates must still be carried on the trip until further notice. You can find out which documents must be carried and where you can also take Corona tests for the return journey at lufthansa.travel-regulations.com
