Our highest priority has always been the safety of our passengers and staff members. In the light of the foregoing, we constantly seek to ensure you a safe and pleasant stay on board.
According to the latest directives of the Italian Ministry of Transport, we have taken more stringent precautionary measures to safeguard our travelers’ and employees’ wellbeing.
In the current situation, entry restrictions might be subject to change on short notice. Therefore, it is essential that you inform yourself, before you start your journey, about the current entry requirements for your destination as well as the regulations at the departure and destination airports.
For Italy: self-certification is required for flights entering Italy, you can download here the updated self-declaration for entry in Italy from abroad (please see attachment with summarised measures for containing the spread of COVID-19 in force in Italy).
Latest updates to check before your departure are available on the official page of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International cooperation.
ATTENTION: Starting from 10 December 2020 travellers to Italy from some countries are required to notify their arrival to the Prevention Department of the local Health Authority where they are staying. They must also present evidence of a negative COVID PCR or Antigen test, taken at most 48 hours before departure. In addition, a mandatory self-isolation can be applied.

Without negative test proof, you cannot be carried. This was decided by the German government. This rule also applies to all passengers with a connecting flight in Frankfurt or Munich.
Capacities at international airports may be limited. We recommend that you find out today about testing options available for you at your departure point and ask you to allow sufficient time for your test. Antigen, PCR, LAMP and TMA tests performed at certified testing sites are accepted. Self-tests are excluded and not valid. The test must be done no more than 48 hours before entry.
Starting from 8 November 2020 Italy has been considered "risk area" by the Robert Koch Institut, so it may be necessary to undergo a test and a quarantine of 10 days on entry into Germany at the request of the local health authorities. Please see here (English version at the bottom of the page).
German authorities require all passengers travelling to Germany from countries and regions with increased risk of infection to register online under following link - Digital Entry Application (DEA) is mandatory for all entrants.

Every passenger must cover the mouth and the nose on board on all Air Dolomiti and Lufthansa's flights and at the airport. Protective masks are mandatory for all the passengers. Moreover, face shields (masks with a protector visor) and masks with a valve are not permitted on board. All cabin crew with direct customer contact will of course also be wearing appropriate protection.
According to All. 1 DPCM of 14th July 2020, on each flight from/to and within Italy the use of surgical masks is mandatory on board.
From 1 February 2021, only facemasks of the following standards will be permitted on Lufthansa flights to and from Germany: FFP2, KN95 and N95 standard or surgical masks. These have to be worn during boarding, on board and when leaving the aircraft. Masks made of fabric will no longer be permitted, visors and masks with valves have not been permitted already.
The only exceptions to the obligation are children under the age of 6 and persons who are not allowed to wear a mask for health reasons.
We only accept exception from the obligation to wear a mask on presentation of a validated negative PCR test result and a medical certificate on a corresponding Lufthansa Group form. The negative test result must be dated and issued no more than 48 hours prior to flight departure. This applies to both the outbound and the return flight. You can download here our medical certificate form for exemption of wearing a mouth-nose-cover.
We take these protective measures very seriously and reserve the right to take appropriate action in case of non-compliance.
Thank you for helping to protect all passengers!
Due to new regulations at the aviation security checkpoints, you are currently only allowed to carry on board one piece of hand luggage regardless of the fare purchased: your hand baggage can be placed inside the overhead bins or under the seat in front of you. If you have purchased a fare that allows 2 pieces of hand luggage (for example Business Class fares) you can bring only one bag on board with you and register the other bag in hold.
Due to a regulation of the Italian authorities personal clothing (e.g. jackets, coats, sweaters) is not allowed to be placed in the overhead bins. All garments have to be put either inside the hand baggage or on the provided hooks at the front seat.
We have adapted our baggage regulations for you so that every piece of hand luggage that complies with the rules (dims max 55x40x20cm and max 8kg) can now be checked in free of charge – even if you have booked a Light fare. We kindly recommend all passengers to deliver their handbag at the check-in counter, even if it is not mandatory anymore.
This also applies to transit passengers in Germany who pass through security checks.
Please bear in mind already when packing that you need to heed the information regarding dangerous goods in checked-in baggage.
