Every passenger has to check-in prior to departure. Please follow the signs indicating »Check-in« at Leipzig/Halle Airport.
For holiday flights, we recommend arriving 2 hours prior to the scheduled departure and 40 minutes prior to departure for scheduled flights. You will be informed of your exact check-in time by your travel agency or airline. Certain flights offer the opportunity to check in on the previous evening.
Check-in usually takes place at the airline’s counter or at the counters of the handling company Flughafen Service Gesellschaft mbH (FSG) or Airport Services Leipzig GmbH (ASL). There is a separate check-in counter for each flight. Each display above the check-in counters indicates the airline, flight number and destination as well as the scheduled time of departure.
Take advantage of the convenient online check-in service, provided this is offered by the airline concerned.
Please observe the applicable entry and customs regulations for your destination, which the Federal Foreign Office is informing German citizens about.
Please enquire about additional charges for excess baggage (20+ kg) or oversized baggage prior to your flight.
After checking in (dropping off your luggage and receiving your boarding card) you may proceed to security control. This security check ensures that you are not carrying any dangerous objects on your person. Your hand luggage will be screened by an X-ray unit. This process will not interfere with the functionality of mobile phones, laptops, cameras or films.
