Privium Basic: Sail through security
Applying for a new Privium membership currently not possible
We regret to inform you that it is currently NOT possible to apply for a new Privium membership. This is caused by labour shortages combined with large numbers of applications, both for re-activation (after Corona) and for new memberships. For this reason, we are unfortunately forced to announce a membership stop until at least 1 September. You can leave your email address here, so we can inform you when registration is possible again.
Your Privium Basic advantages
Priority at security
Privium grants you access to the Priority waiting area. A member of security staff will check which queue is shortest, so that you can pass through quickly.
Passport control in the blink of an eye
Thanks to the iris scan, you’ll get through passport control in just 10 seconds. It’s not a problem if you wear glasses or contact lenses.
Facilities for business travellers
You’ll get after security quickly after saving all that time at the security check and passport control. Once you’re there, you can relax or work at our special workplaces but there are also other facilities.
