SWISS temporarily modifies its online check-in process in view of new PCR test requirement

February 9, 2021 Airport No Comments Email Email

Under new provisions for entering Switzerland introduced by the Swiss authorities from today (Monday 8 February), all travelers 12 years of age and older arriving in or transiting through the country must present a valid negative COVID-19 PCR test result. The result concerned must also not be more than 72 hours old at the time of departure for Switzerland, and will be verified by ground personnel at the departure airport at check-in or the gate. All travellers to Switzerland – including those transiting through the country – must also complete the Swiss authorities’ electronic form for incoming travellers (https://swissplf.admin.ch/home) before starting their journey.

In the light of these new provisions, SWISS is making temporary modifications to its online check-in process. With immediate effect, customers checking in for their flight to Switzerland will not be sent their boarding pass but will receive a confirmation instead. Upon presentation of this confirmation to the check-in agent at their departure airport, they will be issued with their boarding pass, provided they meet all of Switzerland’s new entry requirements.

The new procedure may result in longer check-in waiting times. In view of this, travellers are urged to arrive at their departure airport in good time, and also to inform themselves fully about the latest entry provisions. Further details of these for the various countries served by SWISS will be found at https://swiss.travel-regulations.com/.
