Flying to Majorca on Friday and I'm a bit confused about what we need to take Covid certificate wise.

DH and I both triple vaxxed although booster was just over 6 months ago - presume this is ok. We both have the status app on our phones - not paper copies - again, is this sufficient?

DS 13 - unvaccinated (no lectures please - his choice). He had Covid in February so he has a paper recovery certificate. Does he also need to test or fill in any other forms?

DS 9 - I'm assuming he just saunters through

Many thanks

It states he has to be vaccinated? Have a read at this!

We're going to Ibiza and don't think we need anything apart from the app on your phone. I'm printing that out though, knowing me I'll leave my phone on the plane.

Your DS 13 does need his certificate.

No one needs to do the health control form anymore.

Where does it say that?

It says you have to provide proof of vaccination or proof of recovery or proof of a negative PCR

I'd take paper copies too. Friend of ours could open the app on his phone and they wouldn't let him fly!

We're going in a couple of weeks and have paper copies of everything, just in case

This is the sort of thing I'm worrying about.

Is it the QR code you need to print? I don't have time to send off for a proper certificate

Unvaccinated 12-17 year olds need to do a PCR 72hours before or an Antigen 24hours before, they also need to fill in the Health locater forms or they do with the airline I'm travelling with anyway

We used the app to prove our vaccine status (inc. for our 14-year-old DS) when we went to Spain in Feb (flew with BA). Just make sure that if your DS is known by a nickname that he's set up his NHS app with his proper name, to match his passport. Our DS had put his nickname in, which is completely different from his real name!

We are in Scotland and under 16s can't get the app..... his recovery certificate is in his full name same as passport though 😮‍💨

@PedalPedal I know it's a typo but I love the idea of flung as part of the verb "to fly" - we were flung etc. It seems fitting with some of the airlines' current practice.
