With these tips you can start your vacation relaxed

Patience and time

Due to the adapted processes for check-in, security control and boarding, travelers should plan significantly more time. This also applies to arriving passengers during deboarding, immigration controls and baggage claim. Passengers should therefore check with the airline in advance about the status of their flight before they travel.

(Hand) baggage

At the instruction of the Federal Police, only a maximum of one piece of hand baggage per passenger is currently accepted at aviation security controls.

Hand luggage should also be kept to a minimum in order to help reduce waiting times at the security checkpoint. The regulations of the respective airline are decisive for the size and weight of the hand luggage.

Hand baggage regulations are mandatory for all travelers. Liquids such as drinks, perfume, gels, pastes or lotions that passengers want to carry in hand luggage are limited to 100 milliliters per container in the packaging volume. The passenger must present these containers in a transparent and reclosable plastic bag with a maximum capacity of one liter at the security check.

In the terminal: Always keep an eye on your luggage. The police advise that money, papers and valuables should only be carried on the body and not, for example, placed loosely on the luggage cart.

ID documents

Check your ID documents for validity before you travel. This also includes getting information about the respective entry requirements of the target country.

Arrival by bus and train

If you are traveling by public transport, you should take into account the current bus and train timetables.


In order to avoid a search for a parking space on site, the airport recommends vacationers to reserve their desired parking space online in advance and thus save additional money.

WiFi at Düsseldorf Airport

At Düsseldorf Airport, passengers and visitors can access public WiFi free of charge around the clock. The offer is available for the most common applications. In addition to free internet access, guests also have the option of booking a premium version. After extensive optimization measures, the airport started using the public WLAN with a higher bandwidth and quality that was optimized across the board at the start of the holiday.
