Edelweiss measures due to Covid-19
With the health and safety of our passengers and employees as the top priority, Edelweiss’ hygiene measures and safety concepts are in line with the recommendations of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). We are also counting on your cooperation and personal sense of responsibility to keep up the current preventive measures, particularly as recommended by the local health authorities.
Protective masks are compulsory on all Edelweiss flights. This also applies to vaccinated passengers. Please bring your own mask along. Note that face shields, FFP2 and FFP3 masks with valves are not allowed on board. Scarfs and other textiles are not accepted as substitutes. We can only accept exceptions to the mask obligation with a current (not older than 48h) negative Covid-19 test result (PCR test) in addition to a medical certificate on the official Edelweiss form. Children up to 12 years of age are exempt from this obligation.
Corona tests at Zurich Airport
Anyone who wants to be tested for Covid-19 before or after a flight has the option of taking a PCR or rapid test (nasal swab) at Zurich Airport. In addition, since 7 January 2021 it has been possible to take an Ender Diagnostics' PCR test (saliva sample) at Check-in 2. The result is available within 5 hours (no appointment necessary).
