Check-in

If you check in on the airline's website or app, you immediately receive your digital boarding pass, So you just have to check in your luggage on the day of travel -  either at the airline counter or, depending on the airline, you can also use the Self Bag Drop. Did you use the Late Night Check-in the evening before or do you travel only with hand luggage? Then you can proceed to the security control after your arrival at the airport.

The self-service points for baggage check-in are being further expanded at Düsseldorf Airport. More and more airlines will switch to baggage check-in at self service kiosks. Here we will keep you informed about the current status.

Self bag drop step by step

  • Check with your airline if you can use self-service for your flight.
  • Step 1: Scan your boarding pass at the tag kiosk, print out the baggage tag and attach it to the suitcase. Don't have a boarding pass yet? Then use one of the check-in kiosks for boarding passes and baggage labels.
  • Step 2: The drop-off kiosks (counters 111-120) are very close to the check-in kiosks. Place your suitcases on the belt. The baggage drop-off for Eurowings passengers is currently still at the airline counter (counter section 161-170).
  • Please check in bulky or extra baggage at the bulky baggage counter or airline counter.

Any questions?

Place the bag tag around the handle so that the printed area is on the outside and stick the ends of the label together.
Your receipt will be printed after the baggage drop-off. It is required in case of lost or damaged baggage. Keep the receipt with your travel documents.
Place your suitcase in the middle of the belt. The baggage tag has to face up. Also make sure that the suitcase is not placed on its wheels.
Setting up self-service stations involves construction work in the check-in areas. Since it has to be carried out at Düsseldorf Airport during ongoing operations, the changing process can only be realized step by step.
