Coronavirus: Information for travellers

Safe travel from Dortmund Airport

As of 2 April 2022, the wearing of masks is no longer compulsory in the terminal of Dortmund Airport. This is based on the amended Corona Protection Ordinance of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Despite the discontinuation of the obligation to wear a mask, we, as the operator of the infrastructure, recommend that our visitors and passengers continue to wear a mask. Especially in areas where distances cannot be maintained for short periods of time.
