Current information on the corona virus and the flights from Karlsruhe / Baden-Baden Airport (FKB)
Quick information for our passengers on the following websites:
Karlsruhe / Baden-Baden Airport is READY TO GO for the resumption of scheduled passenger flights.
We have implemented extensive measures to restart air traffic and ensure safe travel. Health protection is a top priority for everyone at the airport. This includes the obligation for all passengers, visitors and employees at an airport to wear a nose and throat covering (mandatory mask). This mask requirement applies in the publicly accessible areas of the airport as soon as you enter the passenger building (terminal) and includes the transport route to and from the aircraft.
We monitor compliance with the distance and hygiene rules and the mask requirement. The uniform handling of the mask requirement at the airports requires discipline from all travellers and employees as well as consistent compliance with the regulations. At the same time, this measure significantly minimizes the risk of infection for all travellers, visitors and employees. In Baden-Württemberg the mask requirement applies to children from 6 years.We advise all passengers to arrive at the airport at least 2 hours prior to departure and to proceed quickly to the check-in area and through the security checks.
We thank you for your support and cooperation!

The corona test center in the airport’s arrival gate is an institution of the state government and the Baden-Württemberg Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (KVBW), which can only be used by arriving passengers.
Karlsruhe / Baden-Baden Airport (FKB) only provides the infrastructure for this. The phone hotline and the staff at Karlsruhe / Baden-Baden Airport (FKB) can therefore neither provide information about the test procedures, test results nor other medical inquiries.

The responsible laboratory should send each tested person a written test result (positive and negative test evaluation). How quickly the information is provided depends on the number of tests. Currently, however, approx. 4 to 5 days must be assumed.
If the test is positive, the passenger will be informed by the local (at home) health department.
The quarantine can only be lifted by the local health or public order office (responsibilities vary depending on the municipality).
