Making it convenient for you to travel
We’re prioritizing your safety and peace of mind when you fly with us. That’s why we’ve partnered with trusted testing providers and the VeriFLY™ health passport app to make it easier to prepare for your trip.
Keep in mind there may be other travel requirements for your destination. Entry requirements are updated often, so we recommend checking the most up-to-date information before your trip.
