Extended Whitsun weekend:

  • Eurowings recommends the use of digital services

  • Extended check-in times and stress-free baggage check-in thanks to evening-before check-in

Eurowings expects increased passenger numbers at all airports over the long Whitsun weekend. Germany's No.1 holiday airline is delighted that so many people will be taking off for the long weekend with Eurowings. At the airports, it is to be expected that there will be longer waiting times at many checkpoints. To ensure a relaxed journey, Eurowings asks departing passengers to arrive at the airport on time and to plan an additional time buffer for the route through the security checkpoint. In order to speed up the process at the security checkpoints, it is advisable to reduce hand luggage to a minimum and to observe the liquid regulations. Ideally, hand luggage should also be checked in. On the return journey, there may be longer waiting times at baggage reclaim.

Eurowings strongly recommends passengers on their way to the Whitsun weekend to use digital services, online check-in and evening-before check-in as well as - where available - the use of self services for check-in and baggage check-in. In order to streamline passenger check-in, Eurowings has extended check-in times: at Düsseldorf Airport, passengers can check in baggage on site as early as 3:30 in the morning. Eurowings guests who have booked a flight from Berlin, Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Cologne/Bonn or Stuttgart can also check in their baggage between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. the evening before, thus saving time on the day of departure. For a smooth process, Eurowings recommends that its passengers check in online free of charge the evening before they check in their luggage, thus saving time before departure. Travellers are asked to check the status of their flight at any time on eurowings.com or via the app before travelling.
