As well as travelers arriving from states in the wider European area (EU, UK, Andorra, Vatican City, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino and Switzerland), travelers may now enter France from Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay without any requirement to self-isolate, or to demonstrate their travel is essential.
Exemptions exist for spouses and children of French nationals, long-term residents with French residence permits and their spouses and children, long-term residents of EEA Member States, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland, the United Kingdom or the Vatican City and their spouses and children on their way home, and healthcare professionals.

Mask wearing is obligatory for all travelers above the age of 11.
Travelers will need to complete a ‘sworn statement’ (déclaration sur l’honneur) form self-certifying they are not suffering from symptoms associated with COVID-19 and have not been in contact with confirmed cases in the preceding fortnight.

Travelers flying to airports in France from such areas will also be required to take a PCR test. They may either provide a negative test result taken less than 72 hours before departure. Whether this test is recommended or obligatory depends on the category your country of departure falls in to:
Category 1 countries: For travelers from Bahrain, Panama, the UAE and the USA. Boarding will be refused if a negative COVID-19 test result is not presented. Those departing the US who have taken a test but do not yet have a result will be able to board with a consular ‘laissez-passer’ on condition they re-take a test on arrival.

Travelers without a negative test result arriving from Category 2 countries and from countries not named above are subject to quarantine if they refuse to take a test upon arrival.

British Airways is significantly better."

Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and new."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"

Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely.

Cons: "We were on the plane for 2 hours before we were offered any drinks (soda, water, etc.) The seats were quite small ( I'm average sized.) and I often felt as if I were slipping off the seat. The aircraft was very warm with poor airflow."
Pros: "Check in was easy. I received an email form the airline tell me where to go for my connection."
Cons: "Very impatient flight attendant. She was really rude to me. Seats were very uncomfortable. The flight was held on the tarmac both departing and arriving to JFK. Botj creating a delay."
Pros: "Most all aspects were excellent"
Cons: "The main food serving was OK. The light serving was not. It was a thin slice of turkey ham inside a piece of bread. Also no small snacks available during the flight. The WiFi is a great idea however it did not work for me. It is a good thing I only paid for the 4.99 euro option."
Pros: "good inflight entertainment selection"

Pros: "The team in both Rome and Madrid to went above and beyond. They were polite and empathetic to our situation, which was not Iberias fault. And they went out of their way to get us home on time. My family of 6 really appreciated. They have earned our loyalty."

I enjoyed the in flight entertainment as it helped the time go much faster. The crew was very nice and did their best to keep passengers comfortable."
Cons: "The flight itself was probably the most turbulent flight i've ever been on. In addition, boarding and de-boarding took a long time. we had to just stand and wait for both - for a much much longr time that normal. They were able to make up the time in the air, but it felt unusually long to both board and de-board."
Cons: "The aircraft has air condition problem and they whole flight was extremely HOT!!!! Cabin crew paid very little attention to this until we were 4 hours into the flight and basically said there is nothing I can do. I call for the head of the cabin crew and she took 2 hours to come talk to me. I had to wait for here to come out from her flight nap in the crew quarters."
Pros: "I made it to Chicago"
Cons: "This was American Airlines, not Iberia. I paid $120 to upgrade my seat to row 17 so I could get off the plane early and make my connection.

Cons: "Screaming toddlers for most of the flight."
Pros: "Decent selection of movies on individual screens. Blanket and pillow provided (it did get cold). Food was hot and decent."
Cons: "Seats are randomly assigned unless you pay them more. This causes last minute seating delays as people negotiate with others around them and you still don't end up with your companions or on an aisle/window seat of choice. Seats have an average amount of room by today's standards (less than Jet Blue but more than United). Crew is stingy with water. Flight was delayed with ever-changing departure times. Then boarding was started and stopped with no information."
Pros: "It got me where I wanted to go."

Cons: "1 hour delay Duden to luggages!"

Cons: "The Captain made loud announcements waking you up"

Cons: "Train the staff to be nice and pleasant"
Pros: "Super friendly"
Cons: "Maybe a hot meal?"
Cons: "Leave on time. Offer more snacks"
Cons: "Probably the most uncomfortable flight I have taken in a very very long time. The ride was smooth but the seat was so terribly uncomfortable. I was in pain on arrival."
Cons: "We had to pay $120 for a checked bag because it “weighed too much”. The lady at the check in counter said they were weighing everyone’s at the gate so there was no way to get around it This however was a lie and they were not checking weight and people got on without having to pay the outrageous fee"
Cons: "The boarding process was awful! The airport itself is difficult to maneuver in. No information provided regarding the flight. Airport security and police very very rude!"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, good vegetarian food options, helpful and friendly staff, and more legroom than my previous flight."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The only salvation was the entertainment choices. ."
Cons: "The planes need to upgrade the seats. When we were served food if the person push their seat back your food tray would flip like two did on our flight. Staff was jaded and sarcastic. I'm glad I had a discounted flight. I'd be angry if I paid full price. Poor staff, seat architecture, and poor food."
Pros: "Crew and on time flight"
Pros: "We really enjoyed TAP Air Portugal and expect to fly with them again. Comfortable seats, pillow, blanket, and MEALS! Good ones with actual silver! USB charging port at every seat, with a good selection of movies. Great airline for a great price!"

Pros: "Good crew, new Airbus 321 charging possible."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Easy to get on board"
Cons: "Just it was delayed"
Pros: "The pilot could fly the plane."
Cons: "The servers were rude."
Pros: "All except for service to handicapped."
Cons: "I mad reservation listing that I needed wheel chair assistance due to walking limitations. Upon flight arrival no service was provided not was it provided on my return trip."
Cons: "Even though I paid for my seats they weren't reserved and I had to request new ones. I paid €80 for them so I'd imagine they would have been reserved. Then they took my blanket when we were getting close with no explanation even though I was cold. I don't get this airline."
Pros: "Nothing. Their mistakes caused an awful experience. And a 24 hour trip from the east coast to Italy is ridiculous."
Cons: "I was livid by their unapologetic nature, their disorganization, their delays, the fact that every customer service agent said something different, the fact we had to pay for bags twice as a result of their delays. We should t have to do extra work to get reimbursed after the fact. They should not charge us right the. and there. It’s stealing. They cost us money and we didn’t get what we paid for."
Cons: "Though the weather was fine - no excuse - the 7 hours delay! the fact that instead of landing in Newark (my original reservation), we landed in JFK! VERY INCONVENIENT AND AN EXTRA EXPENSE! The fact that in Lisbon airport I had to wait more than one hour to reach the help desk and then plead to receive a voucher for refreshment (left Madeira on an early flight, no breakfast on that flight, the flight to NY delayed till 5 PM!). I chose TAP because it was the most direct way to reach Madeira - but the delays on both flights were more than unfortunate - it was simply poor service."
Cons: "Huge delay. No clear explanation what caused the delay"
Cons: "The boarding was delayed"
Pros: "Disorganised boarding and staff not efficient Plane was not cleaned until passengers arrived at plane and waited in buses while they finished cleaning, waited standing approximately 30 minutes at plane on bus"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "Everything but specially the fact that there was no Business class but tickets Were sold and in the end not even assigned seats. No previous info or whatsoever ... this company is becoming worst than a low cost ... well much worst !!!"
Cons: "They were lying about a supposed compensation for denied boarding which was supposed to be handed out in Lisbon. I didn't expect this behavior from grown up people, and such a company in Europe. TAP should be excluded from star alliance."
Pros: "I got a sandwich. Excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "Late flight, and my life flashed before my eyes on the landing."
Pros: "The food was light and good."
Cons: "Not using the tube when deplaining. Summer in Lisbon is very hot ."
Pros: "The plane had a helpful crew, the plane was modern in that they had a usb charger and plugs for both US and European voltages and there was plenty of space to relax in during my flight."
Pros: "The service they provided us reminded us of how airlines used to treat their customers in the past. From the customer service to the services provided and the legroom on the flight -- everything was more than what we expected and we would consider flying TAP Portugal again."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and professional"
Cons: "The plan was delayed 2 hours, seats were beyond small."
Pros: "Five stars for TAP, good attention of its staff, good food and attention during the flight."
Pros: "Generally good and professional."
Cons: "One washroom was permanent;y dirty because the FLUSH mechanism wasn't performing well. Another washroom was permanently locked - causing higher traffic in the remaining washrooms."
Cons: "Boarding awful. Freezed in the cabin as "It's better for the crew." Flight overbooked - nothing was done to accommodate the people without tickets. They just put you in their next flight. They do not try to seat you with the other airlines! The board crew is hit or mis. Once on the continental flight I called for service from about the beginning of the flight- no one came to check why did I call for help. Bad service! Just before landing one of the crew members turn off my request sign without even asking me. So, no more TAP for me..."
Cons: "Schedule was impossible to make the connection due to the need to go through customs which took 45min. Flight was delayed and we missed our connection. The delay was over 6hrs which was rough."
Cons: "It did not included luggage cost which means i had to pay additional cost. You SHOULD state it in booking pages (NOT LINK). If i knew it i would never use TAP. I found direct flight, cheaper. I want you to pay back."
Pros: "My first time flying tap and I was impressed. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Planes seemed very clean, and gave me the impression that they are probably well maintained."

Cons: "Baggage fees not updated on website. Despite having done my due diligence about baggage fees, the airline didn't update their website since October for my November trip. So I get to airport and pay 74 euro each way for two bags! Old planes and poor customer service Also, nobody picks up their customer assistance telephone number"
Pros: "Flight was overbooked. TAP Portugal removed me from the flight without warning (I was already at the airport, with plenty of time to spare), and is now making it nearly impossible to get a refund. Would NOT recommend flying with them."

Thanks! It was a 7 hour smooth sailing trip that went by fast. Also, nice big clean plane, great weather. If you'd like some very good wine with the supplied dinner, you need to ask for it..and its free. They just keep it on the downlow. I had the red Medina local wine, and I can tell you it's really Good! Dry, similar to a good Italian. Not lyin! Small bottle, 2 glasses, comes with the meal free. Maybe more free. but I didnt ask since I took a nap."
Pros: "Leg room was dangerously ridiculously tight."
Cons: "My daughter was not allowed entrance into Morocco. It was a horrible scary experience. Her US issued refugee permanent residence travel document was rejected. In our international travels this has never happened. Marco Air should have caught this before we left the US."

Cons: "In-air service not on par with Emirates, Qatar and Turkish airlines. Even in coach they offer hot towels before meals. I pushed service button for water a few times which went unanswered. The attendants were very nice and when you finally got their attention, they were helpful. A better in-air service strategy should be considered."

Pros: "Staff was friendly but poorly organized"
Cons: "Two identical meals that were laughable even by airline standards."
