Where can I get a corona test before I leave or after I return?

You can find many test offers for both PCR tests as well as fast Antigen tests near your home town through the internet search engines. When a PCR testvery shortly before departure is required, it can be carried out at the major airports. In Terminal 2 at Munich Airport, for example, the company offers "Test & Fly Center" PCR tests and we guarantee that the result will be communicated via email after 3 to 6 hours. The airports in Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Hamburg and Berlin also offer similar options.

How can I get comprehensive insurance?

How safe am I on the plane?

Infection is possible wherever people are close together. Compared to public transport, shops, schools, restaurants and cultural institutions, staying on an airplane is safe.

  • Almost all travel destinations and airlines require a negative PCR test before traveling. It is therefore unlikely that infected guests will be on the plane.
  • All indoor air is exchanged once every 3 minutes. Half of the inflowing air is fresh air from the area around the aircraft, the other half is indoor air freed from germs (including viruses) and suspended matter to 99.97% (manufacturer information) with a “HEPA filter” (video).
  • The flight crew monitors the wearing of medical masks during the flight and thus minimizes the already low residual risk.

Return to Germany by plane

The coronavirus entry regulation of May 13th, 21st (valid from May 13th to June 30th, 21st) regulates the registration, proof and segregation obligations uniformly for the whole of Germany.

1. Applies to all returnees arriving by plane
  • A negative test result must be presented upon check-in. If there is a PCR test it must not have been removed until 72 hours before landing in Germany at the earliest. A Rapid antigen test must not have been removed earlier than 48 hours before landing in Germany.
  • Children under 6 years of age are exempt from the obligation to test corona before they travel home.
2. Entry from a risk area
  • 10 days quarantine at home, which can be ended after 5 days with a negative corona test (PCR or antigen).
  • Digital entry registration or replacement notification in paper form must be completed prior to check-in.
  • If you recovered from Covid 19 or fully vaccinated the quarantine ends as soon as you submit your proof of recovery, vaccination or testing to the responsible health department.
3. Entry from a high incidence area
  • Digital entry registration or replacement notification in paper form must be completed prior to check-in
  • 10 days quarantine at home, which can be ended after 5 days with a new negative corona test (PCR or antigen). This also applies if you have been vaccinated or have recovered from Covid 19.
4. Entry from a virus variant area

TIP: As the airline may not be aware at check-in that an antigen test is sufficient for proof of testing under German law, it is advisable to do one PCR test to be submitted, which was carried out no earlier than 72 hours before return (landing) to Germany.
