Security check


  • Before you arrive at the boarding gate, you have to undergo a security check.

Passport control


  • If you want to travel to a country that is not a member of the Schengen Area, you must undergo passport control before you arrive at the boarding gate (1.).
  • A valid passport or identity card entitles you to travel.
  • A valid driving licence is not considered as a valid travel document, so you cannot fly with it.

Lost or damaged luggage
