Health screening

Authorized passengers and crew arriving from the US, Bahrain, UAE, and Panama will be requested the negative result of a less than 48-hour COVID-19 test, upon arrival. Entry into French territory will be denied otherwise.

Authorized passengers and crew arriving from either South Africa, Israel, Qatar, Brazil, Oman, Algeria, Turkey, Madagascar, India, Peru, Kuwait, or Serbia need to justify a negative COVID-19 test on arrival. LFMN allows passengers to do the test upon arrival under 24-hour notice. Slots are granted once notice has been received and approved.

Crew rest 

LFMN is an excellent option for crew rest. Located in the beautiful South of France, there is no better destination to perform a stop for crew rest than Nice. Right by the Mediterranean Sea, Nice is a prestigious location and the nearest airport to Monaco. Hotels are currently open and eager to welcome the crew at any time.

For crew to be allowed entry, they will need to be listed as crew on the manifest and present their passport and crew card on arrival.

Note: Special cases can always be reviewed. Do not hesitate to send your query to UAS Team.

Fuel stops

Fuel stops are possible from any destination as long as the flight is ferry or the passengers do not disembark from the aircraft when not complying with the local restrictions and when coming from restricted countries.
