Lufthansa enables fast check-in with digital vaccination certificate

More than a quarter of the German population has now been vaccinated twice against Covid-19.

For a few days now, pharmacies, doctors and vaccination centers have been issuing QR codes for vaccinated persons, the so-called digital vaccination certificates.

Passengers with the digital vaccination certificate can check in faster with Lufthansa and receive their boarding pass.

Travelers present the digital vaccination certificate, which proves full vaccination protection, either via app or on a printout at check-in at the airport.

There, it is read and the boarding pass is issued directly and without complications.

This eliminates the need to take various papers and proofs to the airport.

It also makes it much more difficult to misuse forged vaccination certificates, as the system compares the data from the QR code with the booking and passenger data.

In the future, mobile check-in via smartphone will also be faster and easier. On selected routes, it will soon be possible to scan QR vaccination certificates with the Lufthansa app or to load them digitally into the app.

The app recognizes the QR code and uses this information to create the boarding pass.
