Measures on Board

Face mask requirements

A regulation requiring passengers to wear respiratory masks during the flight from/to Czech Republic has been abolished. Regardless, as your health and safety is our utmost priority, we recommend that you keep your mouth and nose covered with a face mask or a respirator during the flight.

Strict Hygiene Standards Aboard Our Aircraft

Our aircraft interiors undergo a thorough disinfection process before and after each flight according to the strictest hygienic standards, including seats, tray tables, seat pockets, overhead lockers and lavatories.

Please Note: We recommend you always check the current rules and regulations for entering the country of your final destination before your journey. This also applies to citizens and permanent residents as well as passengers in transit or transfer. In some cases, a negative COVID‑19 test result may be required. For additional information on rules and regulations for entering or transferring through the country of your final destination, please contact the authorities of the respective country.
