Germany requires all passengers entering the country by air to have a negative Covid 19 test. As Switzerland also requires, passengers will otherwise not be allowed to board the plane.
As Lufthansa emphasized to its customers in a letter dated April 7, this applies to all passengers over the age of six who wish to enter Germany from high-risk and also from non-risk areas. And: this rule also applies to all passengers with a connecting flight in Frankfurt or Munich.
This mandatory testing for transit passengers also affects Swiss passengers. Many direct connections operated by Swiss and Edelweiss are currently not on the schedule. Until now, the Swiss airlines referred passengers to the connecting flights with Lufthansa via the two hubs in Frankfurt and Munich for the corresponding destinations.
And according to Lufthansa, these are currently the rules of Germany: accepted are antigen, PCR, LAMP and TMA tests, which are carried out at certified test centers. Self-tests are excluded and not valid. The test may take place no more than 48 hours before entry.
