The holidays begin at Berlin Airports06.07.2010
The range of flight destinations has never been greater, with 165 destinations in 48 countries to choose from. Traditional holiday destinations such as Spain are proving to be particularly popular due to the numerous flight destinations offered on the mainland and the Balearic and Canary Islands. In second and third place on the holiday hit list are Turkey and Italy, but Scandinavia and Austria are also proving popular this year.
Dr. Rainer Schwarz, CEO of Berlin Airports: “The range of destinations the people of Berlin and Brandenburg can choose from this year has never been greater. The airports are well prepared for the increase in air traffic. We aim to ensure that their holiday begins at the airport.”
Service tips for airline passengers
To avoid stress, holidaymakers should arrive at the airport in good time and proceed straight to the security checkpoint immediately after check-in. This facilitates the handling process and avoids unnecessary waiting due to extensive security checks. Berlin Airports offers passengers in security areas ample opportunity to speed up the remaining time spent waiting.
Special regulations continue to apply for carrying liquids, such as creams, perfume, toothpaste, in hand luggage. Each person may only carry liquids in a resealable, transparent 1-litre plastic bag. Each liquid container inside the bag may not exceed a maximum volume of 100 millilitres. No restrictions for Travel Value & Duty Free purchases
All Travel Value & Duty Free goods will only be sold in the security area of the airport and are subject to repeated security checks. Passengers can take unlimited amounts of these products on board the aircraft as hand luggage, in line with the hand luggage restrictions imposed by the airlines. This also applies to all liquids such as perfume, cosmetics and spirits. In order to extend the security chain into the aircraft, purchases are handed to passengers at the cash desk of Travel Value & Duty Free shops in sealed bags.
