Good To Know
According to the airport website, before accessing the check-in area you must obtain a health declaration form. To do so, proceed to the Airport Health Control area where they will take your temperature. If your temperature is 38 ° C or higher you are required to undergo further checks by the airport’s health team. A second temperature reading will be taken just before boarding.
In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security. For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
