The Chinese government recently issued new regulations that all passengers on flights to China need to undergo nucleic acid and serum IgM antibody tests in advance. The testing equipment at Copenhagen Airport will be put into use from November 16. Transit passengers need to set aside 4 hours for testing and obtain testing reports. This time is expected to be shortened to 1 hour after 2-3 weeks. Passengers who have undergone pre-boarding double-checks on flights to China at Copenhagen Airport can board directly with the negative test report. Scandinavian Airlines will continue to provide passengers with the latest news about the Copenhagen Airport testing facilities.

More flexible rebooking and cancellation for flights connecting to China

According to the new regulations, transit passengers need to undergo nucleic acid testing and serum IgM antibody testing in countries that fly directly to China, which may require extending their stay in Copenhagen, and thus need to rebook or cancel the original flight to Copenhagen. In order to facilitate passengers to accept the test on time, SAS is allowing passengers to rebook or cancel the flight to Copenhagen for free. The resulting change fee, refund fee and possible fare difference will be all exempted, that is to say, all are free. Normally, European inland segments are not allowed to be changed or cancelled individually. Please note that SAS is not responsible for other expenses incurred due to rescheduling, such as accommodation. There is no refund for cancelled connecting flights.
