Testzentrum

Hamburg Airport is offering passengers and the public a drive-through test and an extra coronavirus test centre from 1 April. The offer marks the first free coronavirus for residents at the airport. Terminal 2, which had remained closed until recently, will be reopened on two weekends to people travelling over Easter.

Free tests in new centre

The centre operated by EcoCore will offer free rapid tests, as well as PCR tests, rapid antigen tests and virological antibody tests for which a fee is charged. Two test sites provided by Centogene are located in Hamburg Airport.  The existing test offers, which are subject to a fee, will be expanded to include a drive-through test in the P1 multi-storey car park. Drivers will be able to take the test in their vehicle after registering online.

Terminal 2 open for Easter travel

Hamburg Airport is also preparing for a possible increase in passenger numbers over Easter and will reopen Terminal 2 on the weekends of March 26 to 28 and April 2 to 4 for passenger handling. Precautionary measures including mandatory medical masks, disinfection dispensers, contactless check-in or contactless baggage check-in remain in place.
