The maximum weight for hand baggage is 8kg and dimensions for carry-on baggage: max 55x40x20cm.
For Economy Class fares only one item is included; the hand baggage in Business class fares includes two pieces of carry-on baggage up to 8 kg each.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Changes in hand baggage rules
Passengers are currently only allowed to carry on board one piece of hand luggage, regardless of the fare purchased. If you have purchased a fare that allows 2 pieces of hand luggage (for example Business Class fares) you can bring only one bag on board with you and register the other bag in hold.
We have adapted our baggage regulations for you so that every piece of hand luggage that complies with the rules (dims max 55x40x20cm and max 8kg) can now be checked in free of charge – even if you have booked a Light fare. Please deliver your handbag at the check-in counter, even if it is not mandatory anymore.
This also applies to transit passengers in Germany who pass through security checks.
If the free hand baggage allowance is exceeded in terms of number, dimensions and/or weight, the fee for excess baggage will be charged.
Personal documents, medicines, valuables, mobile phones and laptops should be carried in cabin bags.
Portable electronic devices containing lithium metal or lithium ion cells or batteries, including medical devices such as portable oxygen concentrators (POC) and consumer electronics such as cameras, mobile phones, laptops and tablets are permitted for personal use. Each person is limited to a maximum of 15 portable electronic devices.
For any doubts about the transport of items or devices containing lithium metal or lithium ion cells or batteries, please contact our Sales Center in order to make sure of the authorization to transport these items.
For safety reasons, certain items may not be taken in the cabin and are prohibited in carry-on baggage: weapons, potential weapons, imitation/replica weapons, pointed, sharp or blunt items (e.g. scissors, pocket knives, baseball bats) and all explosive and flammable substances. You fan find the list of forbidden items in accordance with EU Directive 2015/1998 can be found here.
Only allowed in carry-on baggage:
-Lithium-ion spare batteries
Note: powerbanks and similar devices used as an energy source are considered to be spare batteries and may therefore not be carried in checked baggage.
Batteries, spare/loose, including lithium metal or lithium ion cells or batteries, for portable electronic devices must be carried in carry-on baggage only.
Articles which have the primary purpose as a power source, e.g. power banks are considered as spare batteries. Each person is limited to a maximum of 20 spare batteries.
When there is insufficient space to stow all hand baggage safely on board you may be asked to check in some or all of your hand baggage at the boarding gate.
Each liquid you carry in your hand baggage must be in its own container of no more than 100 ml. All liquids must be placed in a transparent, re-sealable plastic bag with a total volume of no more than 1 litre. One transparent plastic bag may be taken per person.
However, you may always bring:
For some specific kinds of baggage, such as strollers, wheelchairs and crutches, it is possible to request – at the passenger's discretion – the “Delivery at Aircraft” (DAA) procedure.
These items will be collected at the side of the aircraft to be placed in the hold – if there is not enough room in the cabin – and will be given back to the passenger during disembarkation, directly at the side of the aircraft or at the loading bridge (finger).
Passengers may choose to opt for the “Delivery at Aircraft” (DAA) procedure or to register the items as hold luggage.
If the DAA procedure is requested on connecting flights, please inform staff at check-in or boarding if you wish to retrieve the item at the transit airport.
