Travel with ease, even in the busiest times: Pack correctly, and reserve a parking spot in advance

For those leaving on a skiing trip, you can find instructions for packing skis, snowboards, and ski wax here.

Please remember that mobile phones and backup power sources for laptop computers, i.e. power banks, must be packed in your carry-on luggage. Do not pack them in luggage going into the cargo hold, because they will have to be removed from there.

Go to the prohibited items search

On our website you’ll find services for families with children, and instructions for unaccompanied minors.

If you are coming to the airport by your own car, it’s best to park in the parking garage at the airport, either in parking halls P1, P2, or P3, or in the outdoor parking areas P5 or P4. The parking halls are right beside the terminals. At Easter time, it’s advisable to book a parking space in advance. This ensures that you will be able to park in your preferred P-area.
