The luggage carts cannot be taken onto the SkyTrain.

Journey times and tickets

The SkyTrain commutes between the terminal and the "Flughafen" airport railway station continuously at 3½ to 7 minute intervals from 3:45 a.m. until 0:45 a.m. daily. The journey between the two end stops, the "Bahnhof Düsseldorf Flughafen" railway station and "Terminal C," is 6½ minutes. The following tickets are accepted as being valid fare tickets:

  • valid VRR and VRS tickets
  • special DB tickets, such as City plus, NRW, Schöne Reise, Schöne Fahrt and Schöner Tag tickets
  • Flughafen Düsseldorf GmbH car park tickets, for up to 9 persons
  • Tickets for the observation deck at Düsseldorf Airport (Terminal B) on the day of use

All passengers who do not have one of these tickets are required to obtain a short-range fare ticket in order to ride on the SkyTrain (or on substitute buses). Ticket vending machines are located at the SkyTrain stations. Payments can also be made with either debit or credit card. When using the SkyTrain, the fares and transport terms and conditions of the Verkehrsverbundes Rhein-Ruhr (VRR) transport association apply.


A bus shuttle between the "Flughafen" railway station, car parks 4, 5, 6 and the terminal is provided when the SkyTrain is not in service. Buses depart from the railway station, from Level 0, from 1:05 to 3:25 a.m. at 20-minute intervals. The journey to the terminal takes about 8 minutes. Departure from car parks 4 and 5 from 1:09 a.m. The terminal bus stop is located on the arrivals level (across from Exit E).

Stops and route

The SkyTrain leaves the "Bahnhof Düsseldorf Flughafen" railway station every few minutes, makes a stop at the P4/5 car park, travels onward to the terminal, and takes the same path back. There are two stops within the terminal building- the "Terminal AoB" and the "Terminal C". These stops are signposted. The following is a short description of how to find your way to the stops:

"Bahnhof Düsseldorf Flughafen" station: when you arrive on the train at the "Flughafen" railway station, you leave the tracks and reach the railway building via the stairs, moving walkway or lift and from there to the SkyTrain station.

P4, 5 car parks: After parking your car at the P4 or P5 car parks, follow the exit signs (Ausgang) to the ground level. From there, access to the SkyTrain stop has been signposted.

Terminal stations: The SkyTrain railway tracks are integrated into the façade of the building; the stops are located above the departures level. The departure and arrivals levels are connected by stairs, escalators and lifts to the "Terminal AoB" and "Terminal C" stops.

Please be aware that, due to safety reasons, the SkyTrain may only be used without luggage carts.

The baggage carts cannot be taken into the SkyTrain.
