Checked-in baggage

The rules for how much baggage you may carry with you onto the plane vary from airline to airline.

For this reason, we recommend you contact the airline you will be flying with if you have any questions about how much baggage you are permitted to bring or about possible size and weight restrictions.

Please note that suitcases must not be fastened with padlocks, fabric ties or rubber bands, and belts must not be strapped around the suitcase as they risk becoming stuck on the conveyor belts during transportation. 

To ensure that your luggage is sorted quickly and correctly, old luggage tags and self-adhesive bar codes must be removed before check-in.

Metal suitcases

If you travel with a suitcase made of aluminium or other metal material, it must be dropped at the odd size luggage at Terminal 3. This is due to the slippery surface of the metal which causes problems in the automated baggage handling.

Oversize baggage 

If your baggage weighs more than 30 kg. or exceeds the dimensions given above for checked baggage, the check-in staff will refer you to separate check-in counters, where the baggage must be delivered.
For further information on among others transportation of bicycles etc. please contact your airline.
