Thanks to La Voz – Lanzarote airport enables a space for PCR control to international travelers

It will begin to operate on November 23, when the State measure comes into force that requires passengers to arrive with a negative PCR

Lanzarote airport is setting up a space within its facilities, specifically in the arrivals area of ​​T1, for the PCR control of international travelers, as confirmed by Aena.

This space is scheduled to be put into operation next Monday, November 23, when the State measure comes into force, which will require passengers from risk countries to have a negative PCR, which has been carried out in the previous 72 hours to land in Spain.

“What will be done by Aena is to verify that the passenger brings this PCR” , they have pointed out from the public company, from where they have indicated that the facilities of the airports of the Aena network are being enabled in the country set.


Penalties for those who come without negative PCR

As explained from Aena, “at origin it should already be verified that passengers come with this PCR done” and with the health control form that has been required for months. However, in the event that a traveler lands without this proof, Aena will give “notice to the authorities”. 


In this regard, the BOE of November 12, in which the resolution of the General Directorate of Public Health of the Ministry of Health was published regarding the health controls to be carried out at the points of entry into Spain, established that, in the event of non-compliance , the system of infractions and sanctions contemplated in Title VI of Law 33/2011, of October 4, General of Public Health , will be applied , which provides fines of 60,001 to 600,000 euros for very serious infractions, from 3,001 to 60,000 euros for serious and up to 3,000 for light
