About Hamburg Airport

Hamburg Airport is the fifth-busiest of Germany’s commercial airports measured by the number of passengers and counted 16,223,968 passengers and 160,904 aircraft movements in 2016 and is named after Helmut Schmidt. As of July 2017, it featured flights to more than 130 destinations of which four are long-haul routes to Dubai, Newark, Tabriz and Tehran.
Hamburg has two terminals, Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, connected by the Airport Plaza and the baggage claim area that extends through the lower levels of all three buildings. These three buildings were designed by Gerkan, Marg, und Partner.
Both Terminals have a high, curved ceiling designed to emulate the shape of a wing. In all buildings level 1 is the departure level, while level 0 is arrivals. Hamburg Airport offers 12 baggage claim belts on the arrivals level.
The Airport Plaza hosts the central security check as well as shops, restaurants, lounges and other service-facilities. It houses the S-Bahn station (suburban railway) and was completed in December 2008.
