Protecting health has top priority

The Central German Airports have put extensive precautions in place to protect the health of passengers, visitors, partners and employees. The package of measures is based on the requirements of the responsible authorities and follows the recommendations of the German Airports Association (ADV).

The wearing of face coverings is compulsory inside all terminals. Airlines also generally require passengers to wear face coverings. Passengers should check the applicable requirements with their airline before travelling.

Other safety arrangements include protective screens at check-in desks and boarding pass checkpoints and disinfectant dispensers throughout the terminals. The airport operator provides passengers with information on safe behaviour and hygiene rules via monitors, information signs, PA announcements and floor markings.

The Free State of Saxony has set up coronavirus test centres for passengers entering Germany at Leipzig/Halle and Dresden Airports, in cooperation with the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians in Saxony (Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Sachsen). The centres are located landside at both airports: on the upper floor of the arrivals/departures terminal at Leipzig/Halle Airport and on the arrivals level in the terminal at Dresden Airport. The test centres are clearly signposted at both airports.
