Off on vacation: But before that, the travelers had to go through the security checks. Patience was required at peak times…

Düsseldorf/Cologne – The passengers had to be patient at the start of the holiday season in North Rhine-Westphalia on Saturday, especially at Düsseldorf Airport. According to the airport, longer queues formed at the security checks in the departure area during peak times in the morning and mid-morning.

The waiting times were between 10 and 60 minutes, but according to a spokesman it was far from being comparable to the sometimes chaotic conditions at the beginning of the summer holidays.

The Verdi union, which observed the start of the holiday season in Düsseldorf, criticized the fact that far too few security personnel were still available. In front of Pier C there were lines of several hundred meters in rows of five. “We had to do more after the summer and nothing happened. It’s a disaster,” said spokesman Özay Tarim.

According to the airport, Cologne/Bonn was “normal operation”, with waiting times at the security check in the morning around five minutes. dpa
