Lufthansa is again issuing digital boarding passes

On many routes, passengers of the Lufthansa Group did not receive a boarding pass after checking in online, but instead received a request to pick them up at the check-in counter. Document control, so the reason. That is now changing for those who have been vaccinated.

They can upload their EU vaccination certificate during the digital check-in. This is automatically checked and then the boarding pass is issued for the smartphone or for self-printing. According to Lufthansa, this procedure should be possible on many routes. In the case of test evidence, this currently only works if it comes from Centogene.

"On all around 2000 flights from non-risk areas of the Schengen area (currently for example from Spain, Italy or Sweden) to Germany, travelers can have their boarding pass issued directly on their smartphone when checking in," Lufthansa describes the procedure.

Mobile check-in requires passengers to scan the CR codes of their paper vaccination certificates. The digital boarding pass is automatically issued and an additional document check at the check-in counter at the airport is no longer necessary. 

But the same applies to many other flights: If you are worried about not having the right certificates for your trip, you can have them checked by a Lufthansa Service Center up to 72 hours before departure. This can be evidence of tests, survived Covid-19 disease and vaccinations. The confirmations of digital entry registrations can also be checked in this way. Thanks to new digital solutions, the check in the service center is now partially automatic and therefore much faster.

The airline advises its guests that, in addition to the digital proof, the printed original certificates must continue to be carried on the trip until further notice. Which documents have to be carried and where Covid-19 tests can also be done for the return journey can be found at lufthansa.travel-regulations.com.
