⚠️ Our measures against Covid-19: Latest information ⚠️

AIR CORSICA has implemented a series of measures to limit the spread of the Covid-19 since the beginning of the pandemic. This system is regularly re-evaluated in order to be adapted to the current health situation. The safety and health of our passengers and staff remain our top priority.

A HEALTH PASS IS MANDATORY ON ALL OUR FLIGHTS

A health pass is mandatory for travel on all our flights from Monday 09/08/2021.

This health pass concerns all persons aged 12 and over and will be mandatory for all air travel. From now on, it will be necessary to be tested, vaccinated or immunised and to be able to prove it to travel on our routes. The necessary documents can be presented at boarding in paper form or digitally via the Tous Anti Covid (TAC) application. The following health documents are required:

  • Vaccination certificate (2 doses + 7 days except Janssen: 1 dose + 28 days).
    or
  • Certificate of vaccination (1 dose + 7 days if covid19 contamination).
    or
  • RT-PCR test less than 24 hours old.
    or
  • Antigenic test less than 24 hours old detecting the N protein of SARS-CoV-2.
    or
  • A certificate of recovery for people who have already contracted Covid. This proof consists of a positive RT-PCR or antigenic test result performed more than 11 days and less than 6 months prior to travel (this is the test result you had performed at the time you reported the illness) 

And for flights to Corsica :

A declaration on honour that you have no symptoms. For minors, the parent fills in the certificate on behalf of the child and signs for him/her at the end, indicating "the mother" or "the father".
If these documents are not presented, the passenger will be refused boarding. Self-tests are not accepted for travel.

Customs and phytosanitary

Customs and phytosanitary

The carrying of currency, alcohol, tobacco, animals, perishable foodstuffs and products of animal or plant origin is strictly regulated. As an air carrier, Air Corsica would like to inform you of this regulation to help you to prepare for your trip and to avoid making serious errors.

Customs and phytosanitary regulations are specific to each country. Please inquire prior to departure, in particular with regards to carrying currency, alcohol, tobacco, animals, perishable foodstuffs and products of animal or plant origin. To do this, you can visit the website :  www.douane.gouv.fr.

Prohibited import products

  • Perishable goods : importation of perishable goods, such as food, plants, etc., is prohibited or strictly regulated, depending on the country. For more information, check with the destination and transit country’s Consular Services and Customs.
  • Products of animal origin in the European Union : due to the risk of introducing disease, the importation of certain products of animal origin into European Union (EU) countries is subject to prohibitions or very strict procedures. Failure to declare the carrying of such items may result in a fine or criminal prosecution*. The carrying of wild animal meat is also strictly forbidden. Passengers violating this prohibition also face criminal sanctions*.

*According to Article L.237-3 of the French Rural and Maritime Fisheries Code.

Counterfeits

Important: the import and export of counterfeit goods constitute a customs offence. The buyer risks fines of up to €300,000 and imprisonment for up to three years for the mere possession of a forgery. Health can also be compromised (counterfeit alcohols, perfumes and cosmetics), industrial heritage and French know-how can be jeopardised and organised criminal networks are financed.

The carrying of plants in Corsica

Since 11 May 2015, the carrying of certain plants is forbidden whatever their origin, by application of a Prefectoral Order dated 30 April 2015 pertaining to the prevention of the introduction of the bacteria Xylella fastidiosa in Corsica. The Xylella fastidiosa bacterium is a bacterium transmitted by insects that feed on plant sap. They attack 200 Mediterranean plant species. It is often fatal for the plants.

To combat the spread of the bacteriaXylella fastidiosa, the introduction of plants is now forbidden in Corsica. Controls are reinforced on arrival and any seized plants are destroyed. Increased vigilance by everyone is necessary to support Corsica’s protection against this disease: being cautious when buying and planting plants, and reporting any related suspicious activity.
