Frequently asked questions

Can I check in musical instruments?

Yes, you can check in musical instruments in hard cases, if they are the size of a guitar or smaller.

Musical instruments in a soft case can only be taken on as hand luggage: musical instruments larger than a guitar must be carried on a extra seat and a fee will be charged.

As a matter of principle we do not transport double basses because of their length.

Germanwings accepts no liability for the transport of musical instruments in the cabin.

For flights operated by our partner airlines their luggage provisions apply.
