The airport company

takes the current health situation very seriously

The airport company takes the current health situation very seriously and is working closely with the responsible authorities at state and federal level to protect passengers, visitors, employees and partners from infection and to prevent the spread of the virus.

Corona tests for passengers from risk regions

At Schönefeld Airport, returning passengers from risk areas can have a test for the Covid-19 virus carried out. The test offer is aimed exclusively at returning travelers who do not show any corona symptoms. Children from the age of 6 can be tested in the presence of their parents or guardians. The tests are free of charge. The test center, which is open daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., is located at Schoenefeld Airport in Terminal Area M Departure.

Country-specific travel warnings

Comprehensively differentiated travel and safety instructions and travel warnings issued by the Federal Foreign Office have again been in force for individual countries since 1 October 2020. 

Basic rules set out by the Federal Foreign Office:

• A travel warning for non-essential tourism will generally continue to apply to all countries that are classified as risk regions by the Federal Government.

• We generally advise against unnecessary tourism to countries for which quarantine provisions are in place after entering Germany since entry is only possible to a limited extent, or to those that do not allow unrestricted travel overall.

• The travel warning is lifted and special care is advised for countries in which both the rate of infection is low, where there are opportunities for unrestricted travel and if no other reasons indicate otherwise.
