The 5 most important tips for a relaxed start to your vacation

1. Be at the airport at least 2 to 2,5 hours before departure.

For a relaxed start to your trip, plan enough time for check-in and security and be at the airport at least 2 to 2,5 hours before departure


2. Take as little hand luggage as possible and pack correctly:

If possible, travel with only one piece of hand luggage and take only what you absolutely need for the flight, this applies especially to electrical appliances and liquids.

When taking liquids with you, be sure to observe the special regulations:

  • Liquids are only allowed in individual containers up to a maximum of 100 ml.
  • These must be packed in a transparent, resealable 1-liter plastic bag.
  • Only one bag is allowed per passenger.
  • In addition, there are some items that are generally prohibited in hand luggage: Checklist - What is allowed in hand luggage?

3. Luggage check-in and check-in already the evening before:

Use the evening-before check-in to save even more time on the day of departure: Upon presentation of your flight ticket and photo ID, you will receive your boarding pass and can check in your bags directly. Several airlines offer this service.

4. Use online check-in and self-bag-drop machines:

Many airlines offer online check-in. You'll receive a digital boarding pass that you can print or save to a mobile device. Then, on the day of departure, you won't have to go to the check-in counter at all. Alternatively, use the check-in machines in the terminals and print out your boarding pass at the airport. At the airport, you can then check in your baggage quickly and securely on your own using the 30 modern self-bag drop machines (10 in Terminal 2 and 20 in Terminal 1) - you must already have your boarding pass for this.

5. If arriving by car: reserve a parking space online in advance.

We recommend that all passengers wishing to park their vehicle at Hamburg Airport reserve a parking space online in advance. This way you can travel stress-free, save time and benefit from our low online rates. 

Tip

The airport is also well connected to the public transport network. The S-Bahn line S1 takes you from the main train station to the airport and back every 10 minutes and in just 25 minutes each way. The train station is located directly in Terminal 2, and many bus lines stop directly in front of the terminals.
