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 checked baggage, you can drop it off at the 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.
At BER, passengers can check in and check their baggage themselves. Several airlines offer this service, either for baggage check-in only or additionally for boarding pass printing.
Self-service supports fast passenger handling as well as hygiene measures on site. For this reason, the number of self-service machines at BER has been significantly expanded – a total of 99 machines are available in Terminal 1. In addition, 19 kiosks are in operation in Terminal 2.

For various reasons (e.g. connecting flights or complex document checks, non-Schengen flight), your flight may not be cleared for self-service. 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 will receive your boarding pass and can bring it with you digitally or printed out and scan it at the self-service machine to check in your baggage.
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.
*easyJet recommends that travellers check in online before checking in their baggage the evening before.
