Summer vacation 2023: travel at ease thanks to a good preparation

Summer vacation will soon begin in the tri-border area. For the upcoming weeks, EuroAirport is therefore expecting a very high volume of passengers. 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.

During summer vacation time, a very high volume of passengers is expected at EuroAirport. This inevitably leads to longer waiting times at checkpoints for both departures and arrivals. An early arrival at the Airport - at least two hours before departure - is therefore strongly recommended.

A meticulous preparation of your journey before departure

It is therefore advisable to find out about entry requirements imposed by the respective airline as well as the country of destination well before departure. Is an ID card sufficient, or is a passport and maybe a visa required as well?

Those who have the option to do an online check-in can also save time. Please check with your airline if online check-in is available.

The number of parking spaces is limited. For passengers arriving by car, it is advisable to reserve a parking spot in advance and to schedule sufficient time for parking. In general, the Airport advises to use public transportation.

Saving time at the Airport

Increased passenger volumes may lead to longer waiting times at both passport control and the check-in zones. We therefore advise travellers to arrive early at the Airport and to keep their documents ready for check-in at the counter and passport control.

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.

Due to security reasons, we ask passengers not to leave their luggage unattended at any time. Failure to do so may lead to an evacuation of the terminal building as well as a fine of up to 450 euros. Passengers are instructed via diverse channels not to leave their luggage unattended. The Airport informs passengers through announcements in the terminal, on posters on the airport premises and on its website.

The expected 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.
