Information

Find out how to prevent the spread of coronavirus and what to do if the disease is suspected.

Within the Schengen Area, you can travel with just a valid ID card (you do not have to have your passport with you) and, therefore, you do not need to go through passport control. Check-in is immediately followed by security control, and only then do you enter the transit zone of the Airport with its duty-free shops, restaurants and other services. Passengers traveling within the Schengen Area are checked-in in Terminal 2. Passengers flying outside the Schengen Area also have to pass through passport control before entering the transit zone of the Airport. Security control takes place only once you are directly at the gate, therefore please make sure you reserve enough time for boarding the plane. Passengers traveling outside the Schengen Area are checked-in in Terminal 1.
