Covid-Tested flights began at Milan Malpensa airport from 3 April 2021, based on the Ordinance of 9 March 2021 issued by the Ministry of Health.
Following the Ordinance of May 14, passengers can fly to Italy from the United Arab Emirates on Covid Tested Flights for tourism purposes.
Therefore passengers arriving in Milano Malpensa from the United Arab Emirates on Covid Tested flights of Emirates Airlines EK205 and EK091 and Etihad Airways EY81 e EY87 will be exempted from the 10 days fiduciary isolation normally requested.
Passengers willing to travel on a Covid-Tested flight prior to boarding shall have tested negative to a rapid antigen test (RADT) or to a RT PCR test performed by swab no later than 48 hours prior to boarding.
Immediately after landing in Milano Malpensa, passengers shall take a rapid antigen test in the dedicated Area Test Covid, located just after disembarkation of passengers arriving from non- EU flights (North Satellite). The swab has a cost of € 36 entirely borne by the passenger.
To speed up the testing process all passengers in possess of an Italian Social Security Number (Codice Fiscale) can preregister in advance and pay for the test directly on Gruppo San Donato web site at https://webappgsd.grupposandonato.it/calendar/summary?examId=3745.
Please note that the test will be performed at Milan Malpensa Airport Terminal 1 even though on the site it is indicated Palazzo Della Salute.
Passengers must book the swab on the correct day; the timeframe is not binding, and it is not necessary to book a specific time for the swab. Passengers will be accepted into the area according to their actual arrival time and not according to the timeframe booked.
After performing the test, passengers have to wait for the result for maximum 30 minutes.
All passengers who receive a negative result will be free to enter our country, without carrying out any fiduciary isolation.
All passengers have to fill in, before boarding, a specific digital location form, the Digital Passenger Locator Form (dPLF). Once the form has been completed and sent, the passenger will receive by e-mail the dPLF in pdf format and a QRcode, that he must present at the check-in desk before boarding.
