Current information and recommendation for passengers:

Thank you for protecting yourself and other travellers at the airport by wearing a face mask, keeping a safe distance, washing your hands frequently and using hand sanitizersWe recommend checking the entry requirements of the country you are travelling to and the measures taken by your airline.

ALERT: Please note that according to a new measure implemented by the Dutch government as of 23 January 2021, in addition to a negative RT-PCR test result, all passengers coming to the Netherlands must present also a negative COVID-19 antigen test result before their departure to Amsterdam. The test must be performed no later than 4 hours before boarding the aircraft. Passengers can undergo the antigen test directly at the airport at the testing point in the connecting corridor between terminal buildings, which operates daily from 4:00 a.m. to midnight. However, we recommend checking the available provider's capacity online on the GHC Genetics’ website. More information about testing can be found here.

We ask passengers flying to Amsterdam who wish to undergo a mandatory COVID-19 antigen test at Václav Havel Airport Prague to arrive at the airport at least three (3) hours before their scheduled departure. Additional important information to be found HERE
