Security control

At the security control is checked whether you are carrying dangerous or prohibited items or prohibited liquids. The Federal Police is responsible for the security checks at Düsseldorf Airport, which rely on the support of a private security service provider.

Longer waiting times can be expected during holiday seasons, on so-called long weekends and before public holidays. Please consider this when planning your journey.

All waiting times beyond 40 minutes are published with >40. The waiting time can be significantly longer. 

Opening hours security control

The opening of the security checkpoints is coordinated with the check-in times. Currently the checkpoints open at at 4:00 a.m. Please keep an eye on 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.

Start smart :-)
