Transfer at Leipzig Airport


Leipzig Airport operates one small and well-organised terminal common to all departures and arrivals.

The terminal is connected to the station and the main parking garage by a covered corridor. Everything is very clearly signposted and the distances from the terminal entrance to the aircraft are short (maximum 150 metres).

The central security checkpoint leads to a single transit area, where all passengers have access to the departure gates to the Schengen area countries, and behind passport control there are a few gates set aside for flights to non-Schengen countries.

The airport has several boarding bridges, so you usually enter the aircraft directly from the terminal. Only in the summer months, when there is more traffic, will you be transported to some flights by airport bus.

Queues for security checks are rare at Leipzig and maximum waiting times are around 15 minutes.

A map of the terminal is available on the airport website.
