Cologne/bonn Airport customer review

Review by (Germany)

Short distances, almost all relevant services for continental travels, fair pricing for parking, 24/7 operations, friendly atmosphere. WiFi is free of charge but occasionally overloaded, limited selection of food and beverages in the security area but too expensive (as probably on all airports). Power outlets in public seating would be nice. Whenever I can I fly from CGN instead of DUS, DTM, or FRA.

Cologne/bonn Airport customer review

Review by (Germany)

Very pleasant experience. Security staff were friendly and well organized, no long waiting time. Passport control for non-Schengen flights could be better as it opens quite late (we had a very early flight to London). Passport control was well organized and pleasant with no significant waiting times. All seating areas and toilets in the Terminal are very clean. Many shops and Cafés for such a medium-sized airport, even after the security control. Very nice airport.

Cologne/bonn Airport customer review

Review by (Germany)

We flew to Antalya with tuifly and arrived at Cologne/Bonn by train. The way to the Check-in Counter in Terminal 2 was easy to find and also very short. We appreciate that the Terminal was not crowded, clean and bright. We made a little stop at McDonalds where we found a playzone for our kids. The big panorama windows allow them to watch the aircrafts on the aprons and a little playground with a plane and a slide shorten our waiting time. It was an enjoyable atmosphere and a very good start in our holiday.

Review by (Germany)

Enjoyed my trip to Mallorca with AB and CGN's Terminal 2 with its modern architecture. The check-in was hassle- free. The stuff were helpful and friendly. There was no queue at security! The waiting time was entertaining because of free wifi and the selection of restaurants and shops. The connection with S-Bahn line S13 to Cologne central station is okay. Every 20 minutes travel time 15 minutes EUR 280 one-way.

Cologne/bonn Airport customer review

Review by (Italy)

Terminal 1 is huge for a medium city. Terminal 2 is much more light and airy but I have only seen it from the tarmac. T1 Baggage claim is the worst signposted among all the airports I've been. You have to search through two long lines of shops for the exit. Evidently they want your last dime before you leave. On arrival the train station is quite far. You have to walk all through the horseshoe shaped terminal building to the opposite edge then down the stairs to the train platform and up to the ticket office. S13-S12 lines are a very fast and cheap way to reach downtown Cologne and back. T1 is spotless as you may expect but it's a bit dark before security. The age of the building is more evident airside especially at the gates. If you are headed to a non-shengen country do not cross passport control too early because after there are really no thrills.

This airport is unreliable in winter as it can't handle light snow. Got held hostage in waiting aircraft for 2.5 hrs following repeated de-icing repeatedly closed runway and broken down snow clearing vehicle on runway.

Review by (Germany)

Probably my favourite airport in Europe. Security lines usually short to non-existent (although Monday mornings can take 10-20 minutes on a bad day). Free wi-fi throughout the airport a bonus. Arriving very pleasant too with immigration normally taking less than 5 minutes. Typically takes me less time to get from plane to car with checked luggage at CGN than it does to get out of London Heathrow or Gatwick with hand luggage. If departing from CGN late evening (or are delayed) there aren't a lot of shops or facilities open past 8pm.

Probably the quickest and friendliest border control in EU baggage arrives quickly easy to use and navigate through and friendly efficient staff. Very pleasant experience.

Review by (United Kingdom)

I have used Terminal 1 at CGN many times over the last few years and with one recent exception I have generally had good experiences. Terminal 1 has an open airy feel to it and it manages to have a good range of shops and eating places without giving the impression that retail is more important than aviation. Surface transport links are excellent although signage can be a little hit or miss - my first attempt to find the bus to Bonn ended in the car rental area. Most recently inbound from EDI border control was painless with a welcoming smile from the officer at the counter. Baggage wasn't the quickest but it was still acceptable and I was on my way within 30 mins of landing. Outbound to MUC a few days later check in with 4U was a breeze I had time for a bite to eat and a visit to the Besucherterasse. However things were spoiled when I went through security. It wasn't busy so there were no significant delays but the staff who dealt with me were brusque to the point of unpleasantness. I'm an experienced flyer reasonably competent in German and not readily upset by airport staff but on this occasion their attitude was poor. CGN is a decent airport and could be a really good one if it wasn't let down like this.
