How long do I have to wait?
All waiting times beyond 40 minutes are published with >40. The waiting time can be significantly longer. Please consider this when planning your trip.
When are long waiting times to be expected?
The waiting times at the security checkpoints depend on the time of day, the number of passengers and the staffing of the control lanes. Experience has shown that longer waiting times can be expected on the following days:
- During holidays in North Rhine Westphalia and the Netherlands
- On so-called long weekends and before public holidays
For early flights, check-in opens at 4:00 a.m. The opening of the security checkpoints is coordinated with the check-in times. Please note the opening hours of the checkpoints - especially if you are only traveling with hand luggage or have already checked in the evening before. The piers are connected in the security area – you can reach every gate through any security check.
During the winter season, all checkpoints open at 4:00 am.
