Things to consider when picking up


If you are going to pick someone up at the airport, do not arrive too early. After a plane lands, there are waiting times for baggage and for flights from outside Europe, arriving passengers must also pass through border control.

Please stop and wait outside the arrivals hall if you are going to pick someone up. To avoid crowding, we ask that only arriving passengers come inside the terminal.
