From 24 February 2021, all air carriers with flights arriving at Danish airports are obliged to report passenger information to the Danish Patient Safety Agency in relation to the handling of the coronavirus pandemic. It is still not clear when the obligation ceases.

The obligation to report to the Danish Patient Safety Agency is based on the Danish Epidemic Act. Certain obligations governed by the act will cease as of 15 April 2021, but air carriers’ obligation to report still has no termination date. This means that air carriers must continue to report the name, phone number and flight and seat number of all the passengers to the agency.

It is still unknown how long the obligation to report will last, but for now air carriers must be prepared to continue to report.

IUNO´s opinion

Air carriers should continue to report in the same manner as previously to the Danish Patient Safety Agency. As it seems that the obligation will apply for some time, IUNO recommends that air carriers try to make the reporting a part of their routine.

In order to ensure compliance with the obligation, air carriers should request that the Danish authorities confirm the receipt of each report, including confirmation that the information is well received and legible, in order to avoid unnecessary complications.
