GREEN SHOOTS. Finnair to accept vaccine certificates as alternative to negative test results


Advice. From May 11 Finnair will accept a Covid-19 vaccination certificate from the first vaccination dose, providing it is on the list of vaccines approved by the World Health Organisation or the European Medical Agency, and has been administered at least 21 days before the date of travel. The certificate must include the customer’s name, date of birth, the name of the vaccine producer, the time and place the vaccine was administered, as well as the issuer of the certificate. The airline will accept certificates in English, French, German, Estonian, Swedish, Spanish, Russian and Italian but not in Finnish.
In addition the airline said that as of May 11, there is no requirement for children under the age of 16 to present a health certificate, but Finnair recommends children between 12 and 15 years of age arrive with proof of a negative test result, to speed up the arrival procedure at Helsinki Airport.
