Passenger notice: increased volume of passengers at Schönefeld

Arrival Schönefeld Airport

With the commencement of the winter flight schedule and the opening of the Ryanair base at Schönefeld at the end of October, an increase in the number of passengers is expected in the coming weeks. We would therefore like to provide passengers and visitors with some useful information to help make their arrival and time spent at Schönefeld Airport as pleasant as possible:

Please check in online before setting off on your journey. This will help you to avoid long waiting times at the airport. You can find out from your airline in advance about the available online check-in options.

Since longer waiting times are also possible at the security checkpoints due to the higher volume of passengers, we kindly ask you to make your way directly to the security checkpoints immediately after checking in, if possible.

The “Berlin Airport” app includes new functionality. App users at Schönefeld will now receive push notifications with information that helps them find their bearings and assists them while at the airport. What is more, users get the information right where it will be of use to them. For instance: after landing, passengers will receive information about public transport; and departing passengers will get information about the fastest route to their gate. This is made possible with the help of small Bluetooth transmitters, known as beacons. The “Berlin Airport” app can be downloaded free of charge for iOS and Android smartphones. In order to use the service, users need to activate Bluetooth.
