Reach your destination healthy

To minimise the risk of infection from coronavirus at the airport, Cologne Bonn Airport is implementing a series of protective measures. Please be considerate and help protect yourself and others. Thank you.

Travellers returning from a high-risk area (defined by Robert-Koch-Institute) must get tested for Covid 19 within 72 hours of landing. A free test is available at the testing centre at Cologne Bonn airport.

The testing centre is located directly next to terminal 2 at the long distance coach terminal and is open 24 hours a day. The test result is usually available within 48 hours. Until they get their test results arriving passengers must self-quarantine at home.

Important note: The testing centre is intended exclusively for people returning from risk areas defined by the Robert Koch Institute. Travellers from non-risk areas can be tested free of charge e.g. by general practitioners. 

General questions about the corona virus are answered by the Citizens’ Telephone Service of the City of Cologne:
Phone: +49 221 221-33500, from Monday to Friday 7 a.m. to 6 p.m

Masks are mandatory throughout the entire terminal

It is mandatory to wear a mask or alternative mouth and nose cover throughout the terminal. Masks, disposable gloves and hand disinfectants are available at various locations in the terminals.

  • Please pay attention to ground markings and signs.
  • Also pay attention to safety distances at check-in, the security checkpoint, in waiting rooms, shops and when boarding.
  • The staff will inform you about changes in procedures and special precautions.

The Airport Business Lounge, the visitor terrace and the prayer room in Terminal 2 will remain closed until further notice.

Very important: Hygiene

  • Wash hands regularly and thoroughly with soap (at least 30 sec.).
  • Use an elbow or handkerchief when coughing and sneezing.

There are disinfectant stands throughout the airport. The cleaning intervals of toilets, self-service monitors, stair railings and all surfaces that need to be touched have been increased.

    Each passenger is only allowed one piece of hand luggage. All other luggage must be checked in at check-in.

    • Please stow all small items in your hand luggage or outer clothing before proceeding to the security checkpoint.
    • Please place hand luggage on the belt.
    • Disposable gloves and protective masks may be worn in the control.
    • Oral and nasal covers or masks may have to be temporarily pulled off during the security check if the security staff asks you to.

    The guidelines may vary depending on the airline. In principle, however, the following also applies on airplanes: keep your distance and use mouth and nose protection. The airlines have set up up-to-date information pages for many questions that currently concern air travelers.
