Hygiene measures at Munich Airport*

Munich Airport is taking extensive measures to ensure that its passengers can travel safely and enjoy a high quality of service in times of the corona pandemic:

  • Route guidance through lines and floor markings before check-in, at security checkpoints and in other areas where passengers could be congested

  • Plexiglass panels (spit protection walls) where passengers and staff are in direct contact with each other, such as at check-in or service counters

  • Regular announcements in German and English, posters and video screens and heavier staff presence in the terminals inform passengers about the rules of conduct

  • Newly installed hygiene vending machines allow passengers to purchase masks for mouth and nose protection (MNS masks) and other sanitary products

  • Increased cleaning intervals in all areas where passengers linger and the disinfection of surfaces, e.g. waiting benches or shelves

Compulsory wearing of masks in all passenger terminals

Passengers and employees will have to wear a mouth and nose protection at Munich Airport. The obligation to wear masks was mandated by the authorities, and it applies in all airport terminal buildings, i.e. in area A through E of Terminal 1, central area Z, area F, and throughout Terminal 2 as well as its satellite building.

Changes in passenger processes

Munich Airport is responding to the substantial drop in traffic resulting from the worldwide travel restrictions imposed to contain the corona virus. Resources for passenger handling are being pooled in both terminals.

Terminal 1

Passenger handling in Terminal 1 is suspended until further notice. All departures and arrivals will be handled via Terminal 2. Check-in for airlines otherwise based in Terminal 1 will take place in Area Z in the Munich Airport Center. Baggage reclaim for all flights will be located in Terminal 2, and access to the airport's medical center in Area D of Terminal 1 will continue to be possible. Guests arriving by car can use car parks P20 and P26 at Terminal 2.

Terminal 2

The satellite building belonging to Terminal 2 (Gates J, K and L) will no longer be used for passenger traffic until further notice. All departures and arrivals planned here will then be handled via Terminal 2 (Gates G and H).

Travelling and current travel regulations*

The German government and the Foreign Office are currently warning against unnecessary tourist travel. They point to increasing drastic restrictions on travel, with quarantine measures and restrictions on public life in many countries. Travellers should therefore obtain information on travel and safety instructions before departure and check the status of their flight with their airline or travel company.

Entering the country at Munich Airport

All arriving travellers will be given an information sheet at passport control or at the gates with rules of conduct and further information. When entering Bavaria, there is a compulsory two-week quarantine for third-country nationals until further notice. For travellers from the EU, the Schengen area, Great Britain and Northern Ireland there is only a quarantine recommendation if they enter from an area with high infection rates. No quarantine will be ordered for these persons any longer, unless they have been in a third country immediately prior to entry. In Bavaria face masks are mandatory in all shops and public transport, as also in the Munich Airport terminal buildings.

Further entry regulations

German citizens and their family members may still enter Germany. Citizens of EU countries and their family members and citizens of Great Britain, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland and their family members may land at a German airport if they travel on to their home country from there. Third-country nationals with a long-term right of residence are also excluded from the restrictions.

At present there are first loosenings of internal temporarily border controls. From the German point of view, crossing the land borders to Austria, France, Denmark and Switzerland is possible at any point. If the development of the incidence of infection permits, the Federal Ministry of the Interior aims to end all corona-based internal border controls by 15 June 2020.

On the recommendation of the European Commission, the Federal Government has extended a temporary entry restriction for non-EU nationals without a long-term residence permit until 15 June 2020. Entry for tourist purposes is not permitted until then. In the case of an urgent reason for entry, appropriate proof must be carried along, showing the necessity to cross the border.
