Start your holiday quickly and easily with “Ready to Fly”


Thanks to the time-saving “Ready to Fly” document check, KLM passengers will be able to save time during the May holiday period by having their Covid-19-related entry documents checked from home or abroad. Using this hassle-free service, they can have items such as negative PCR tests, health certificates and vaccination certificates validated quickly and easily prior to their trip. This will save time and provide peace of mind once they begin their journey, ensuring all the necessary Covid-19-related documents are in order. The “Ready to Fly” service will be available to passengers traveling to a wide range of destinations.

This is how it works

A few days before departure, passengers for selected KLM flights will be asked by email to gather the documents needed for their trip. They can upload the relevant documents up to five hours before departure. KLM will then check them and reply by email – usually within an hour. After receiving an “OK”, passengers can check in online at (or using the KLM app) and obtain their boarding pass, which will state “Ready to Fly”. At the airport, passengers will only be required to present their passport or ID card, and a visa if necessary. As such, they will have peace of mind throughout their journey.


KLM’s “Ready to Fly” service will be available to passengers flying from or through Amsterdam to Bonaire, Brazil, Canada, Curacao, Dubai, France, Germany, Ghana, India, Istanbul, Italy, Kenya, Lima, Nigeria, Portugal, St Martin, South Africa, Spain and the United States.
