Overweight in carry-on baggage is not allowed for safety reasons and in view of the comfort of the passengers. On account of the limited space available, it is possible that not all large hand-baggage items can be transported in the cabin; the remaining items will be transported free of charge in the hold. Hand baggage exceeding these dimensions and/or this weight will be refused at the boarding gate. Sometimes the exceeding amount of hand baggage can be transported in the baggage compartment, upon payment of a supplement.
Important! For safety reasons, you are not allowed to carry loose lithium batteries (e.g. power banks or spare batteries) in the baggage you check in. Please put them in the personal item you can take on board. This practical overview provides more information about the items you are or are not allowed to carry in our (carry-on) baggage.
EU regulations on liquids in carry-on baggage
Only limited amounts of liquids and gels (such as beverages, deodorants, perfumes and toothpaste) may be taken on board of flights that depart from EU countries and on connecting flights from Europe. Please note that more and more countries outside the EU also follow these regulations for carry-on baggage.Liquid and gel-based products such as healthcare products and cosmetics may be carried in carry-on baggage as long as they comply with the following regulations:
• Containers with liquids and similar products may contain up to 100 millilitres (the printed maximum quantity applies).
• All containers must be carried in a transparent resealable plastic bag (e.g. a so-called "zip-lock") with a maximum capacity of one litre.
• One bag per person.
• The bag must be presented separately at the security check.
Liquids bought in the shops before the security check at the airport may not be taken on board. Products bought in one of the airport shops or bars and restaurants past the security check can be taken on board and are packed in a special sealed bag you can only open at your place of destination. The contents can otherwise be seized at the security check.
• Baby food (both formula milk and jars) is allowed in the carry-on baggage. The quantity depends on what is needed during the flight. The security check staff may ask to taste the food to check whether it is really baby food.
• Medicines and dietary supplements for use during the flight are also allowed (you need to have a certificate from your doctor to prove their necessity and you need to obtain approval from the airline company).
