#WeCare – so you can fly worry-free

We care about the health of our passengers and employees. This is why the airlines of the Lufthansa Group are doing everything in their power to bring travelers safely to their destinations, even in these challenging times.

Mandatory mouth-nose-mask on Lufthansa Group flights

When traveling with Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa, SWISS, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings, it is mandatory to wear a mouth and nose protection – while boarding, during the flight and when leaving the aircraft.

Please note:

To cover the mouth and nose, fabric and medical protective masks can be used

Visors (face shields) or FFP2 masks with a valve are not permitted on board

On long-haul flights, we recommend that passengers bring several masks with them so that they can be replaced if necessary (once they get damp)

Children under the age of six do not need to wear a face mask 

New as of 1 September 2020: An exception to the mask requirement is only possible with a medical certificate* in conjunction with a current negative PCR test result (from within 48 hours of the start of travel)
