The most convenient way is to check in online via your airline's app or website. If you are only taking hand luggage with you, you can go directly to the security check.
If you have any checked baggage, you can drop it off at the self-check-in baggage drop-off counters in the terminals.
The airport company recommends that all passengers arrive at the respective terminal 2.5 hours prior to departure and proceed to the security check immediately after check-in.
Passengers at BER can check themselves in and drop-off their baggage independently. Several airlines already offer this service.
Please go to the self-check-in machine. There you can print the boarding pass and the baggage label. With some airlines, you must already have checked in online and will receive your baggage label with your boarding pass (see table). A total of 99 check-in machines are available in Terminal 1. 25 kiosks are also in operation in Terminal 2.
Attach the baggage label to the long side of your suitcase. Baggage drop-off is directly at the check-in counters of the respective airline. Alternatively, for all airlines with self-check-in departing from T1, you can check in your baggage at check-in counter 515-516. The counter is open from 3:30 am to 9:00 pm.

For various reasons (e.g. connecting flights or complex document checks, non-Schengen flight), your flight may not be cleared for self-check-in. In this case, please use the regular check-in counter in the same check-in area.
We always recommend checking in online. This way you can upload all the documents required for the flight in advance. You get your boarding pass and can bring it with you digitally or printed out and scan it at the self-check-in machine to print your baggage label.
You are also welcome to check in at the counter on site.
You will find the check-in area in T1 on level E1. There are ten check-in islands with a total of 118 counters. If you are travelling with large baggage, you will need to check it in at one of the two large baggage counters. In T2, there are 16 check-in counters and one large baggage counter on level E0.
