Disruptions on flights from Barcelona

Security staff at Barcelona Airport in Spain have announced extensive strike action on forthcoming Mondays, Fridays and Sundays. Longer waiting times at security control can also be expected on other days. airberlin passengers flying from Barcelona are also affected by the announced strike.

We are therefore asking our passengers to arrive at Barcelona Airport at least three hours before departure, especially on strike days.

We recommend that all passengers travel with minimum hand baggage. Please always carry any valuables (e.g. car and house keys, jewellery, laptops, medication, etc.) exclusively in your hand baggage.

airberlin passengers are requested to regularly check the status of their flight from Barcelona:

airberlin regrets any inconvenience that may arise as a result of the security staff strike in Barcelona and will attempt to minimise the impact on its passengers.

Service information: airberlin recommends allowing more waiting time for US flights

The US has demanded stricter passenger controls, with effect from 19 July 2017. With immediate effect, airberlin therefore requests that its passengers flying to the US proceed directly to the waiting room after check-in. Passengers heading for American destinations should be prepared for more intensive security checks. This particularly applies to any electronic devices they may be carrying.
