Is anyone here familiar with the Dusseldorf airport?

I'm considering flying from Berlin to the Dusseldorf airport in order to catch another flight to Paris.

The most convenient arrangement gives me a 90 minute layover in Dusseldort.

I am imagining that the Dusseldorf airport is small, and that 90 minutes will give me time to retrieve my luggage (if necesary) and check into my Paris flight.

Am I calculating correctly?

There is an earlier flight that gives me a 3-hour layover. Should I book that instead?

Many thanks in advance!

I assume you know that Easyjet flies N/S to Paris from Berlin.

The Dusseldorf airport is not small..take a look at the website:

Hi Dukey

Unfortunately, the departure times of the Easy Jet flights don't work for me. The next-best cheap alternatives are to fly via London or fly via Dusseldorf -- so far as I've been able to discover.

Thanks for the link to the Dusseldorf aiport. Having never flown Air Berlin, I don't know how efficient they are about unloading baggage and check-ins. All I know is that I can't afford to miss that 7:30pm flight. It's the last one to Paris that day.

I flew into and out of Dusseldorf airport in July. The airport is new and yes it is small and easy to get around. Under normal circumstances 90 minutes would be plenty but nowadays you never know.

Thanks! We've booked out tickets and will be taking hte earlier flight. More worrisome to me is the fact that the Air Berlin website said of our 2nd flight, from Dusseldorf to Paris, that "times and routes may be changed!" Hope I get there!
