Protecting health is a top priority
Central German airports have taken extensive precautions to protect the health of passengers, visitors, partners and employees. The package of measures is based on the specifications of the responsible authorities and is based on the recommendations of the Airport Association ADV.
Mouth and nose protection must be worn in the terminals. With airlines, too, there is usually an obligation to cover the face and nose. Passengers should find out about the applicable regulations in advance from their airline.
Other precautions include separating discs at the check-in counters and at the boarding pass controls and disinfectant dispensers in the terminals. The airport company ensures that passengers are kept informed about the rules of conduct and hygiene via monitors, signs, announcements and markings.
In cooperation with the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians in Saxony, the Free State of Saxony has set up corona test centers for travelers returning at Leipzig / Halle and Dresden airports. The premises are located in the public area of both airports – at Leipzig / Halle Airport on the upper floor of the arrival / departure terminal, at Dresden Airport on the arrival level of the passenger building. The test centers are signposted at both airports.
