Vaccination on LX

I would hope that LX would make this clear on their website. Currently I have booked a PCR test for 48 hours before a longhaul flight to CH in mid-June, but would hope that will not longer be necessary as I am fully vaccinated. P.S. I hope they would accept the CDC card as proof (although I did keep the pharmacy receipt from the shots and saved on my iPhone the screen shot from the CDC vaccine follow up.

Entry seems complicated for US persons. I understand the following as of post May 27: US persons can enter for important business meetings (but unsaid what documentation must be presented); US not on the high risk country list, so no quarantine required; on this board, people have posted that the requirement prior to May 27 to present a negative PCR test within 72 hours of departure, NO LONGER applies for persons who have been vaccinated. Is there anything incorrect in this summary??? Navigating the Swiss government pages to extract this information is far from straightforward.

Is a negative PCR test required to fly onboard LX?

We are vaccinated and the destination country does not require a PCR test for vaccinated travelers, nor will we need one to re-enter Switzerland on the way back.

Absolutely not. You need to comply with the entry and transit regulations only.

What about which vaccines are allowed if you are indeed vaccinated!

The four approved by the EMA: Pfizer, Moderna, AZ, and J&J.

LX does not care if you are vaccinated. Which vaccines are accepted depends on where you are going.

So, as of now still no transit USA-ZRH-Schengen country, right?

Edited: n/m, I see in another thread posts stating it is possible since June 1st.
