Lufthansa enables check-in with digital vaccination certificates

Lufthansa passengers can soon use COVID vaccination certificates at check-in.

Passengers will be able to prove they have been vaccinated by showing their vaccination certificates at check-in either on their smartphone or on paper. Once the certificate is checked, the boarding pass is issued.

Also, on selected routes, passengers will soon be able scan QR vaccination certificates with the Lufthansa app or to load them digitally into the app. The app recognizes the QR code and uses this information to create the boarding pass.

Passengers can also have their documents checked by a Lufthansa Service Center on selected flights up to 72 hours before departure.

Lufthansa recommends that passengers continue to carry the original printed certificates with them on the trip, in addition to the digital proof, until further notice.
