About the flight ban

The Minister for Transport has issued a ban on the access to air operations (flight ban) for passenger flights to Denmark for passengers without a negative COVID-19 test taken within 24 hours from boarding. It does not apply to passengers aged 12 years or less.

 

The ban applies to all passenger flights to Denmark, except flights from Greenland and the Faroe Islands to Denmark. The ban does not apply to flights from other countries to Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

 

The ban does not apply to other types of flights, including cargo flights and special fligths, nor does it apply to crew (both active crew and dead heading crew).

 

The ban does not apply to transport of passengers with can document a positive COVID-19 test that is at least 14 days and maximum 8 weeks old. It is the assessment of the health authorities that the passenger is this situation is no longer contagious and that a positive test result is due to inactive virus RNA.

 

For a continuous journey (connecting fligths), the following rules apply: If the passenger travels to Denmark on a continuous journey via stopovers at one or more airports, the test can be taken up to 24 hours before boarding at the first airport. The test must be presented in connection with the last flight that has a destination in Denmark. The airline flying the last flight must ask the passenger to provide proof that the test was taken within 24 hours of boarding the first leg/part of the journey. This documentation may be in the form of a boarding pass or other proof showing the time of start of the continuous journey. As an alternative to this, the passenger can take a test during the continuous journey, but prior to the flight with destination in Denmark.

 

The ban is force from 9 January 2021 at 17:00 until 7 February 2021.
