Hi

Do you need a fit to fly covid test to fly from the UK to Alicante? Although Spain does not require UK citizens if fully vaccinated, does Ryanair need proof of a negative test to travel? 

Can’t find the answer on their website!

Thanks

You can't find any info on their website because there is no requirement to test to enter Spain from the UK 😁😎

I recently flew from Alicante to U.K. for my 2nd AZ vaccine and returned to Spain within 2 days. Had to do my Antigen test and book and pay for both 2 & 8 day tests before I left Spain. On my return to Spain 2 days laterthere is no requirement for any COVID tests for travel to Spain, only the Spanish Health form to complete with the QR code.

We're you flying from the UK?? 

If you were, you don't, and have never needed a PCR test to enter Spain.

We flew in from UK yes and you don't need a pcr test to enter spain but you do to get on the flight I assume it is up to the airline discretion  couldn't get our boarding passes with out it. And slightly off topic one passenger was not allowed to board as her 2nd covid test was only done the day before you have to upload all info 48hrs before departure.

I'm afraid that is wrong. You do not need a test to get on a Ryanair plane although they will sell you one if you buy their amber travel package. That seems to have created a lot of confusion.

You currently only have to complete the Spanish health form to board a Ryanair flight and to enter Spain. NO tests required.

Spain to UK is a different matter!
