Ascension and Pentecost 2022: Travel at ease thanks to a good preparation
A very high volume of passengers is expected at EuroAirport over the coming Ascension and Pentecost weekends. In certain countries, travel regulations are still in force that require additional checks and controls. An early arrival at the Airport is therefore strongly recommended. Thanks to a good preparation, passengers can contribute to flawless check-in procedures and security checks.
Over the coming Ascension and Pentecost weekends, a very high volume of passengers is expected at EuroAirport. With entry restrictions still partially being in place, additional checks and controls are required, inevitably leading to longer waiting periods at checkpoints. This affects departures and entries alike. An early arrival at the Airport – at least two hours before departure – is therefore strongly recommended.
A meticulous preparation of your journey before departure
Pandemic-related travel regulations are still in place in some countries. It is therefore advisable to find out about regulations imposed by the respective airline as well as the country of destination well before departure. We suggest that passengers in need of a Covid test shall ideally take it the day before departure. Alternatively, we recommend to schedule sufficient time before the start of check-in procedures while taking into consideration corresponding waiting times until reception of the test results. EuroAirport has a modern Covid test center. We recommend to make an appointment via the dedicated website.
Those who have the option of checking in the evening before can also save time. Passengers are advised to check with their airline if check-in the evening before is offered.
For passengers arriving by car, it is advisable to reserve a parking spot in advance and to schedule sufficient time for parking. In general, EuroAirport advises to use public transportation.
Saving time at the Airport
ID and document control procedures can take up to three times longer than before the pandemic. This can lead to longer waiting queues in the check-in zone. We therefore advise travellers to arrive early at the Airport and to keep their documents ready for check-in at the counter.
In order to go through the security checks at ease and to avoid unnecessary waiting times, we invite passengers to get information in advance concerning the types of items allowed as hand luggage and items that have to be packed within the checked baggage. Certain items are not permitted on the flight due to security reasons.
The staffing situation in the tourism industry remains tense. The recovery of passenger numbers is partially advancing faster than ongoing re-staffing efforts. The rapid increase in passenger volume is a challenge for all partners involved on the airport platform. We do everything we can to ensure that travellers have the best possible passenger experience.
