    Checking in luggage at Self Check-In

    You can check in luggage even if you use the self check-in machines or check in online.

    You can also use the separate “drop-off counters” at Berlin, Cologne/Bonn, Munich and Stuttgart. You should breeze through here, as all you’re doing is dropping off your luggage – up to 30 minutes before departure! Simple, quick and no queues!

    Lost luggage

    Report any lost luggage immediately to our Lost & Found counter in the airport arrivals area, who will give you a case number. Online you can then use this number to check the status of the search for your luggage.

    If you leave behind luggage in the aircraft or wish to report lost luggage, you can also contact us by filling out a contact form.
