Take care of your health and make use of the following services offered by our Medical Centre:

  • Vaccinations

    If you are travelling to an exotic country, you should pay special attention to health considerations. Check between six and eight weeks before your planned departure whether there are any recommended or obligatory vaccinations required for the destination country. Our Medical Centre also offers vaccinations to protect against infections and other health risks to ensure that you comply with the regulations or recommendations in the various countries. The costs of vaccinations can be obtained from the Medical Centre at the telephone number above. Don't forget to bring your vaccination certificate and signed vaccination information sheet with you!


    1 hour free parking included.


  • Malaria prophylaxis

    Drugs to prevent malaria, insect repellent for skin and clothing and a mosquito net impregnated with insecticide are available.


  • Trombosis prophylaxis

    Travel thrombosis, as it is called, can occur on long journeys because of the limited mobility.
    Important preventive measures:
    - drink plenty of fluids
    - move your legs so as to stimulate the blood circulation
    - wear travel stockings

    Pregnant women and persons with circulation problems are at particular risk. In certain cases it might be advisable, after consultation with your doctor, to take anticoagulants before embarking on very long flights.

You can purchase travel stockings and thrombosis medication for your return flight.

There is also a pharmacy and even a dentist at the airport.
