A relaxing summer holiday


The summer holidays in Berlin and Brandenburg start on 5th July, and so begins the peak season for the capital’s airports – because holiday time is the time to travel. And so that your holiday starts well, right from the airport, we’re asking passengers to plan for enough time and to keep themselves well informed in advance.

Punctual travel

As a result of the high volume of traffic during the summer holidays, passengers of all airlines are asked to plan for enough time for check-in and security. In particular, this means that passengers should be at the airport no less than two hours before their departure time, and should go through security directly after checking in.

To avoid unnecessary waiting times, it is advised to check flight status, check-in counter opening times and hand luggage regulations of the respective airlines, either online or via telephone, before departing. Many airlines offer free online check-in. Passengers who already have their boarding passes can use separate baggage drop-off desks. This way, waiting times at check-in counters can be avoided.

Arrival by car

Passengers and people collecting/dropping off passengers coming to the airport by car are asked to take the following traffic restrictions into consideration while planning their travel.

• Travellers who are arriving via the A113 to Schönefeld airport, should allow for sufficient time. Repairs to the road to Schönefeld between the Johannisthaler Chaussee und Späthstraße junctions are expected to take place until 17th August 2018, in both directions. During this period, only two lanes in each direction will be available.
• Repairs to the B96a between Schönefeld and Adlergestell will take place until 2020. Both directions will be single-lane on the carriageway into the city.

• Due to sanitation roadwork on the Rudolf Wissell Bridge in the southern direction from 8th until 24th August 2018, the A100 will be reduced to two lanes in each direction. There will also be a ban on trucks over 3.5 tonnes from the Beusselstraße junction. In light of this, an increased volume of traffic is likely at the intersection of Saatwinkler Damm and the access road to TXL airport.



In total, there are around 4,000 parking spaces for passengers at Berlin Schönefeld, and 2,200 at Berlin Tegel. Parking spaces at Berlin Schönefeld can be booked in advance:
