NB: pandemic-related changes in the public health situation will have an immediate impact on the flight schedule. When booking their flights and before departure, passengers are strongly advised to contact their airlines and the competent authorities for information about the current status and the requirements to be met in the country of departure and the country of arrival to reach their destination.
At the same time, EuroAirport recommends that passengers get to the Airport well in advance to allow for the longer queues caused by the additional pandemic-related checks.
