Seamless Travel

Rostock Airport has been part of the cruise business in Rostock-Warnemünde since 2015. In cooperation with the cruise company Costa Crociere, a seamless travel product was developed that provides passengers with an optimal transfer from the departure airport to the cruise ship in Rostock. The new service concept consists of a joint air/cruise product that optimizes the process of baggage handling, check-in and the development of new procedures for coordination with authorities, local port agents and the port company.

The product

The aim is to make the arrival and departure of cruise passengers as comfortable as possible. Thus, the airport team takes care of the luggage for the passenger, who travels stress-free without having to receive or collect his luggage several times. The luggage is marked at the departure airport and delivered from the arrival airport directly to the cabin of each guest. At the end of the cruise, Rostock Airport ensures the smooth transport of the luggage from the cabin to the customer’s destination airport by equipping the ships with check-in technology. The luggage is checked in on board the ship the evening before the cruise arrives. The technology and the implementation of the necessary procedures on board are carried out by Rostock Airport staff together with the ship’s crews before the cruise season. The so-called “off-airport check-in” reduces the waiting time for passengers at the port and at the airport.

roduct. The modern infrastructure, the control of processes in one hand, and the high quality of passenger handling convinced other cruise companies to entrust the airport in the Baltic Sea with the implementation of the system. In addition to Costa Crociere, MSC uses the high-quality “Seamless Travel” service, for guest arrivals and departures, enhancing the quality of the travel experience. In 2017, more than 90,000 cruise passengers used this service from Rostock Airport for a relaxed start and finish to their vacation. And the trend is rising.
