Hand luggage

Your ticket includes 1 piece of hand luggage of the following dimensions:

  • 40 x 30 x 25 cm

There is no weight limit. Additional baggage is a matter of additional services or tickets issued in SMART or BIZclass tariffs.

Large hand luggage

If you have SMART or BIZclass tickets, you are entitled to 2 pieces of hand luggage free of charge. One smaller one see above and one larger one of the following dimensions:

  • 55 x 40 x 23 cm and 8 kg.

You can also add this second bag to your BASIC ticket via the 2 Cabin Bags and Priority Boarding service. The price is around 19 EUR per flight.

Checked baggage

Checked baggage limits again depend on the fare you choose.

The BASIC fare does not include any checked baggage and you have the option to purchase baggage up to 12kg, 23kg or 32kg. The usual price is from 17 EUR to 67 EUR per flight and baggage.

The SMART fare includes 1 checked bag up to 23 kg.

For the BIZclass fare, two checked bags of up to 32 kg each are included in the ticket price.
