Boarding with liquids

Boarding with liquids

Luggage options by fare

Frequently asked questions relating to the topic: Luggage

Are there any restrictions on the amount, size and weight of hand luggage?

Each passenger may carry one item of hand luggage on board with a maximum weight of 8 kg and maximum dimensions of 55 x 40 x 23 cm. This excludes foldable garment bags carried as hand luggage, which may measure up to 57 x 54 x 15 cm.

Due to the limited space available in the cabin, larger or heavier pieces of luggage must be checked in at the airport counter and will be carried in the hold. This is not only for your own safety and the safety of your fellow passengers, but also for your comfort.

Please ensure that medication and valuable items such as laptops, mobile phones, PDAs, documents, ID and jewellery are removed from any bag which is to be carried in the hold.

 Note:
For flights operated by our partner airlines, the hand luggage regulations of the relevant airline apply. Our current partner airlines are Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Condor, United Airlines, Air Canada and All Nippon Airways.

What regulations apply for carrying liquids in hand luggage?

In addition to all other hand luggage regulations, the following regulations regarding carrying liquids on aeroplanes apply for all departures within the EU and in several other countries, including Switzerland, Russia, Iceland, Croatia, Israel, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia and Norway:

  • All liquids (such as cosmetics and toiletries, gels, pastes, creams, lotions, mixtures of liquids and solids, perfumes, pressurised containers, cans or water bottles) and wax and gel-like products may only be carried on board in containers holding up to 100 ml or 100 g.
  • These liquids and products must be packed in a transparent, resealable and fully closed plastic bag (max. capacity 1 l). No such plastic bags are available at the Germanwings/Eurowings check-in area so travellers must ensure they obtain one in advance, for example a freezer bag from the supermarket.
  • Prescribed medication and baby food may also be carried in hand luggage if the traveller can prove that they will be required during the flight.

Our recommendation:
Store all liquids and gels that you will not require during your flight in your checked luggage to ensure a quicker boarding process.

Liquids from Travel Value or duty-free shops

All liquids, gels, drinks etc. purchased from Travel Value or duty-free shops after the security checks may of course be carried on board.

 Note:
Products and bags that do not comply with requirements or are not closed with a rubber band or similar must be handed over to security. Germanwings/Eurowings accepts no liability for any belongings brought along by passengers which must be handed over to security.

How does web check-in work?
  1. Enter your six-digit booking number or your etix® ticket number on the "Web check-in" page, and then enter your surname or the surname of one of the passengers on your booking.
  2. You can now check in all passengers in your booking at the same time, including infants.
  3. You can now also reserve a seat.
  4. To finish, simply print out your boarding pass.

You can use the web check-in function at the earliest 72 hours and at the latest 3 hours before departure, and at German departure airports up to 30 minutes before departure (exception: Karlsruhe, Baden-Baden and Heringsdorf on the island of Usedom). At London Heathrow, due to the size of this international airport, web check-in is only available up to 45 minutes prior to departure.

Luggage

As you already have a boarding pass, if you are only travelling with hand luggage you may go straight to the gate. If you have special luggage, excess baggage or luggage you wish to check in, please use the check-in counter. At the airports Berlin, Hanover, Cologne/Bonn, Munich and Stuttgart you can also use the baggage drop-off counter that we have set up exclusively for checking in luggage.

Other additional services

As soon as the web check-in process is complete, it is no longer possible to book other additional services online. However, you will be able to register additional luggage to be checked in for an extra charge at the airport counter.

 Note:
Please note that it is only possible to check in for Germanwings/Eurowings flights at germanwings.com. For flights operated by our partner airlines, please use the online check-in function for the relevant airline. The online check-in terms of the relevant airline apply. Our current partner airlines are Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Condor, United Airlines, Air Canada and All Nippon Airways.

What items may not be carried in hand luggage?

For security reasons, the following items are prohibited in the cabin:

  • Toy or dummy weapons (plastic or metal) 
  • Petrol lighters
  • Nail files (paper files are allowed)
  • Catapults
  • Cutlery
  • Knives with blades of any length
  • Razor blades
  • Tools
  • Darts
  • Scissors
  • Syringes
  • Knitting needles
  • Sports rackets
  • Billiard, snooker or pool cues

For departures within the EU and from many other countries, there are special conditions regulating the carrying of liquids.
