MOBILITY LIMITATIONS

 

Due to the evolution of the pandemic situation, national and international, mobility, may be subject to the limitations imposed by local governments. It is therefore advisable to check the latest regulations before planning your trip. The violation of the regulations for Covid-19 may result in refusal to board a flight or you can be denied entry into your country of destination by the local authorities.

GREEN PASS OBLIGATION

As required by the D.L. 111 of August 6, 2021, from September 1, 2021 it is mandatory to present the Green Pass (Covid-19 Green Certification) when boarding your flight for both domestic and international destinations. Following the subsequent ENAC provisions, this documentation is now also required to access the sensitive areas (beyond the security gates) of all Italian airports.

The Green Pass is accepted in both digital and paper format in Italian, English, French and Spanish. 

Regarding international flights, the Company has the obligation to verify the dates of the vaccine administration, which is not verifiable by QR Code but by the certificate.  We therefore recommend printing it in case of absence of internet connection.  

DOMESTIC FLIGHTS

When boarding you will need to show one of the following documents:

  • vaccination, at least with the first dose, with a vaccine validated by the EMA
  •  a certificate confirming recovery from COVID-19 that occurred during the last 180 days prior to entry into Italy;
  • a negative test certificate for a molecular or antigenic swab carried out within 48 hours prior to entry into the national territory.

The regulations regarding the mobility on the national territory of Italy are published on the website of the Italian Government along with all other regulations in relation to open and authorized activities during the pandemic. There may be specific local regulations in addition to the national ones; for this reason we suggest you also check the website of the Region of destination.
