Only passengers with boarding pass and people accompanying a passenger that needs assistance (people with reduced mobility or unaccompanied minors) can access the terminal building. Companions with private vehicles must wait in the car park.

  • Keep a safe distance, wear your facemask and follow the recommended hygiene measures

  • Only use a bottle or container at the airport’s water fountains.

INSIDE THE AIRPLANE

  • Your airline will provide you with information about preventive measures during the flight.
  • Wash your hands often with your sanitiser, cough into the crook of your elbow and always wear your face mask. Remember to change it every four hours.
  • Watch the cabin staff safety demonstration for specific instructions for your flight.
  • Use the individual air supply nozzles as little as possible. Many airlines have HEPA filters which allow exceptional cleaning of the air.
