Get prepared for your upcoming flight!

Here are some tips and tricks that will help you to have a smooth and comfortable journey with us during the busy summer season:

  • Check the entry requirements: By using our interactive tool, easily find out the travel documents you need to provide, such as visa or passport, for your destination country.
  • Get real-time updates: Check out the airport website to be informed about the most recent announcements made by the departure airport
  • Check the status of your flight: Visit our Flight Status page regularly before heading to the airport. If we have you contact details, you will also receive an e-mail and SMS notification in the event of flight delays
  • Use our convenient and free Online Check-in wherever possible. Otherwise, please note that checking in at the airport for an international flight costs 5 € per passenger, one-way.
  • Arrive at the airport in a good time: Here you can find the updated airport check-in times. Please arrange your arrival at the departure airport according to these check-in times. Timely arrival is especially important for flights departing from the airports where night curfew is applied
  • Minimize the amount of your baggage: If possible, reduce the amount of your baggage you will take with you and ensure that it does not contain any prohibited items, medicine and valuable belongings such as money or jewelry. 
  • Have your travel documents ready at all times
  • Inform us about your special service requests in advance:Due to limited availability, kindly let us know your special assistance request until 48 hours before departure
  • After check-in, please go straight to passport and security control.Then, make your way directly to the departure gate.
  • Schedule your onward journey with enough connecting time: Your flight might be delayed or your baggage may take longer than usual to arrive at the baggage claim. Please spare enough time for your airport pick-up arrangements when booking your onward travel (e.g. train ticket)

We hope that these hints help you have a pleasant experience on the ground, just like your experience with us up in the sky!

Thank you for your collaboration and understanding.
