Hand baggage

 

Please note that in order to ensure your safety and comfort during the flight, the rules on hand baggage are strickt and the staff check its adequacy and act accordingly. Since the stowage space in the cabin is limited, you are advised to follow the carrier's rules on carry-on baggage. In this way, you avoid the inconvenience of having to repack your baggage at the airport. For your safety and comfort as well as the safety and comfort of other passengers, baggage in excess of the quantity or dimension is to be checked-in. In this way your baggage will not need to be checked-in at the gate or even refused to be loaded on the plane.

It is also possible to check the weight and dimensions of hand baggage at the airport by using the dedicated gauge and scale in the vicinity of the check- in counters.

Please do not leave your baggage unattended at the airport. It is likely that the baggage will be removed by security authorities for security reasons.

Larger musical instruments are not considered hand baggage, but are to be checked-in. If you would like to have the instrument in the cabin an additional ticket for the instrument should be purchased.
Detailed information concerning the baggage rules can be found on the website of the carrier.

  • A coat or blanket,
  • An umbrella or walking stick,
  • A woman's handbag,
