Since the 1st of July 2020, the Spanish Government has established a series of health control measures for anyone who wants to visit Spain including Lanzarote. Regardless of nationality or age:
- In the days before starting your trip, you must fill out the public health form electronically on the website spth.gob.es (available in ES/EN/DE and FR), in order to obtain a personal QR code to be shown at the airport of origin (either printed or on your mobile device).
- On arrival at the airport, your temperature will be taken and if it exceeds 37,5 °C you will be subject to a health assessment.
IN AIRPORTS AND DURING YOUR FLIGHT
In airports and during the entire flight, you must wear your mask, obligatorily and at all times, and follow all the security measures indicated for your own safety and that of all those around you.
We recommend that you check in online, although you should bear in mind that many airlines no longer allow you to carry hand luggage in the cabin, except for a personal bag that fits under your seat.
