I agree that it is a small tidy airport with close proximity to the city. It is great that the
tram is literally as you walk out the front doors, with a frequent service to the city. Bremen
is such a great little city.
I thought this airport was lovely. Outside are the cobbled roads and tram link into center. In
the main airport terminal the facilities are excellent. They have a truly amazing viewing deck
with information about the space programme and aircraft using the airport. Security was quick,
efficient and friendly and boarding immediate to the aircraft. I feel Bremen airport gives
passengers the proper respect they deserve even when travelling a budget airline.

I agree with Jurgen Arnold regarding this airport and its proximity to the lovely city of Bremen. I
flew there last year on Easyjet, to and from London Luton but they don't do the route anymore it
seems. Squeezed out by the inferior product from Ireland I guess so the comment about other low-
cost competition may be a pipe dream. Now, if Easyjet were to try again from Gatwick they may give
Ryanair a fright. My advice to Jurgen when next departing this lovely airport is to use the
facilities in the main terminal first (much nicer and not much blue!) before travelling to Ryanair's
plastic chairs at the last possible minute.

As living in the north of The Netherlands, Bremen airport is a good alternative for Amsterdam.
Recently flown from the new low cost Ryanair terminal. Its basic, clean, and blue! There is a
multipurpose shop which sells everything from a to z at somewhat inflated prices and small coffee
shop. Seating is mostly in plastic chairs, which you could find at your local dentist. Reasonable but
we had an early flight so it was not so crowded. Would not like to be there when its get full.
There are also some paid internet terminals. The airport is well situated from the city center and
freeway, from the parking garage you are within 3 minutes in the main terminal building.
Bremen is still a great small airport but they need to get some other low cost airlines on board

Nice medium sized airport located right in the city. Looks more like a
mix between an office park and a train station. Security was friendly
despite the recent terrorist scare. Could not comment on facilities as
we had an early morning flight. At landside there are a few bars and
restaurants, travel agencies.

London Luton/Bremen a recently introduced route by EASYJET. Flew into
(9 March 2006) and out (13 March) of Bremen airport. It is small, modern
and efficient. Inward passport control and delivery of baggage very
quick and efficient. Take a tram rather than a taxi to get to central
Bremen. Tram number 6 will take you to the main square outside the
central railway station in 10 minutes for 2.05 Euros. Tickets are
purchased not from the driver but from onboard ticket machines that take
coins only. There are instructions in English. Airport has a very small
duty free shop and in the evenings (our flight was at 21.20) the
departure lounge only has vending machines for the purchase of hot and
cold drinks, ice crams and snacks. Overall a stress and hassle-free airport.

Bremen is a quite modern airport, small, but the first impression is
really good. I arrived by taxi, but the taxi driver left me in front of
Terminal 1. At that time of the day the airport was empty, no rush, so
was the service. The signs to find the LH counters - no idea where they
are! I saw an information desk where a woman in red dress was sitting.
She was very unfriendly when I asked where I can find LH. She said
"Terminal 3" and nothing else. I don't think this is a service desk,
just a cashier for the parking - and service means friendliness to me.
LH check in was really good, friendly, efficient and professional, like
I had experienced before at other airports. I arrived more than 2 hours
prior to departure, so I had plenty of time. Some nice cafes, at the
second level some bistros, a restaurant and travel agencies. Some
pictures are presented in a room in terminal 3. Shopping is very poor,
although there are some signs showing the way. Didn't find any. Hair
dresser was closed in the morning. No chance to change my left Euros.
Excellent a free of charge terrace at level 3 with a great view of the
apron. "Bremenhalle" on the roof is a small museum with an old airplane
called Bremen, like the city, which first crossed the Atlantic from East
to West, real aviation history is presented here. Security check was
somehow rude. Boarding on time and efficient. All in all a very nice
small airport, nice terrace, but only a really small number of shops,
missing/wrong sings, dirty toilets (waters is dirty). Airport could be
even much better. I will come back to Bremen.

I just had to fly out from BRE. Actually a nice small airport, bright and quiet, with
lots of green in front of it, located just a few kms away from downtown Bremen, with easy and
frequent connections by tram leaving in front of central station and dropping passengers of right in front
of the terminal, within 20 minutes. Layout of the terminal is a bit strange: arrivals in the center with departure and
check-in sections on either sides. I took the first entrance showing "Departure" and of course couldn't
see any LH desks, when looking on the monitors, I found out I had to go to terminal three. That
gives the feeling that the whole airport is huge, but actually this "T3" is across the arrival
hall, just at the other end of the building, all on the same floor at a short walk away.
LH ticketing lady friendly and helpful. Check in at LH easy and quick. Only one eco,
one business and even first class check in desk (even though on domestic an
European flights LH
doesn't offer First class). Attendants just wave waiting passengers to come trough at the first
desk available. Lady at first class desk efficient and doing her job, but not much more than that...
If I were a First class passenger, I would at least have expected a smile for the price I'd have
to pay... For the rest not much to do in the terminal building. There is a sign indicating
"shopping" on the 2nd floor, but there is a just a pharmacy and a small "art" exposition (which was
actually certainly not of my taste). Throughout the building there a few news stands/ souvenir shops and a variety of
coffee shops, some looking actually nice and friendly. Offering a variety of drinks and snacks for very
reasonable prices (I would almost say cheap, compared to the rip off prices in other airports).
For the rest loads of last minute ticket shops selling last minute holidays to the well known
tourist spots in Europe and around the world. Maybe convenient for locals who
want to have a easy
overview of all the offers, but for those who already have their tickets to leave, not of much
distraction. For the rest not a soul there. Security a bit overdue in my eyes: I handed over my cell phone,
wallet with coins and was asked to remove my belt (I still wait for the first time all passengers will have to strip
down...), but still the buzzer went of because of my watch or so, and that happened to basically
everyone passing. In the departure lounge, LH offers free coffee and tea and some news papers
(only in German, including international titles like Financial Times, so not much for international
travelers...). Altogether a quick and pleasant experience.

Bremen is one of the cute little airports that make flying fun. Located close to the city, you can
leave home/hotel about an hour before your flight departs and you will make it. Security is usually
very friendly (rare for German airports). Since it is not too busy, departures are quick, long
taxiways unheard of and upon returning, in most cases I found my bags already rotating on the belt
when I came from the plane. The tram connection to the city center could be more frequent evenings
and Sundays, but then a cab is just a few bucks anyway.
