GERMANY. Lufthansa to enable check-in with digital health pass
Advice. Lufthansa will allow passengers to use new digital COVID-19 vaccination certificates at check-in for their flights.
Lufthansa said passengers would be able to show the digital proof of vaccination either on their phones or on a printout when checking in at the airport, and the boarding pass would then be issued.
Germany started issuing QR codes for those who are fully vaccinated last week. Lufthansa said on selected routes it would also soon be possible to use the digital vaccination certificate to check in via smartphone using the airline’s app.
Passengers who want to check they have the right paperwork can also contact the Lufthansa service centre up to 72 hours before they fly. Lufthansa still recommends that passengers carry their original printed vaccination certificates with them on their journey until further notice.
