SELF-CERTIFICATIONS

 

According to the Ordinance of the Ministry of Health of 16 April 2021, from 24 May, all passengers arriving in Italy from a foreign country will have to fill in the dPLFs ( Digital Passenger Locator Form ) before boarding a direct flight on the Italian national territory.

                                 

To fill out the Passenger Locator Form in digital format, please follow these steps:

1. Connect to the site  https://app.euplf.eu/#/

2. Follow the guided procedure to access dPLF 3. Choose "Italy" as the destination country

4. Register for the site by creating a personal account with user and password

5. Fill in and send the dPLF following the guided procedure

 

Once you have submitted the form, you will receive at the email address indicated at the registration stage, the dPLF in pdf format and a QRcode that you will have to show at the time of boarding and/or anyone who is responsible for carrying out the checks. Alternatively, you can print a copy of the dPLF to show.

 

The dPLF must be completed and sent before boarding. However, the field for the assigned seat number will still be modifiable.

 

Because it is a legal obligation, failure to complete the DPLF will mean that boarding on the flight will not be permitted.

 

In exceptional cases, i.e. solely in the face of technological impediments, it will be possible to fill in and present a  paper form instead of the dPLF.

 

We remind you that it is also necessary to complete the self-certification certifying that you have not had contact with people with the virus Covid-19 before boarding.
The self-certification for is digital and can be completed during online check-in, here you will find all the relevant information.
Do not worry if you don't have the option to check-in online: you can always download the paper form here and show up at the airport with the self-certification already completed in each field.

 

Please note that you must complete the self-certification for each passenger and for each leg.
