connection flight through Munic Airport


As I plan to have a connection flight through Munich airport (terminal 2) on July I would like to minimize my risk to be infected from other people. On one way I will have 2 hours between flight and on the way back 12 hours. I will be vaccinated at that time.

- Is there any VIP service, special room or a way not to spend time with many people together?

- Will I need to have PCR test before coming or can skip it as I will be in transit only and also vaccinated?

as long as you stay airside, you will have no problems. but please remember, even if you yourself have been vaccinated, you can still transmit the virus to others, so you should continue to continue social distancing.

Rules will change between now and July. Better think about it closer to the time. Very Important People tend to go to airport lounges but I'm not sure that's a great idea as they tend to be much smaller areas than the general area where the masses congregate. Maybe staying with the plebs would be a wiser option. Also depends on how busy everywhere is. Could be like hell on earth at airports in general if the masses are let loose to travel.

Note that Munich airport has a large covered outdoor area between the terminals (outside security) which is probably safer than any enclosed room like a lounge.

I am presuming you will be using terminal 2 on your way there and back (well.... aside from the fact that boarding for the Israel flights are in a special secure area for boarding your flight home) and thats a gigantic terminal and even in pre covid times you could always find plenty of space away from other people.

There is a wonderful Outdoor beer garden at the airport.
