Hand baggage with Eurowings

Each passenger is allowed to take one piece of hand baggage on board with Eurowings. The dimensions must not exceed 55 x 40 x 23 cm and the weight is limited to 8 kg. In addition, Eurowings allows you to take one personal item (e.g. a small handbag or laptop) measuring a maximum of 40 x 30 x 10 cm. It is important that your hand baggage meets the requirements to avoid additional costs at the gate.

What items can be taken in Eurowings hand baggage?

At Eurowings, you are allowed to take one personal item on board with you in addition to your hand baggage. Here are a few examples of what is allowed in your hand baggage:

  • Electronic devices: Smartphones, tablets, laptops, e-readers and cameras can be carried in your hand baggage without any problems. Just make sure that certain rules apply to the transportation of lithium-ion batteries.
  • Travel documents: You should always have your passport, ID card, flight tickets, visa documents and other important documents with you in your hand luggage.
  • Personal items: Wallet, keys, glasses and sunglasses fit perfectly in your hand luggage or personal item.
  • Reading material: Books, magazines and travel guides for entertainment on board are a must.
  • Small snacks and drinks: These are allowed, but there are restrictions on liquids. Everything that is liquid must be in containers with a maximum capacity of 100 ml and must also be packed in a transparent, resealable plastic bag with a maximum capacity of one liter. You must present this bag separately at the security checkpoint.
  • Medication and medical equipment: Necessary medication and equipment are okay, but should be easily accessible. It's smart to have a doctor's note with you confirming that you need these items during the flight.
  • Hygiene items: Toothbrush, small toothpaste (within the liquid rules), deodorant (solid or spray under 100 ml), small hairspray, make-up in solid form or liquids under 100 ml.
  • Valuables: Jewelry, cameras and other small valuable items should always be carried in your hand baggage to avoid loss or damage.
  • Clothing: A light jacket or scarf can be very practical if it gets chilly on board.

Remember that safety rules apply to everything you take on board. Prohibited items such as sharp objects, explosives or flammable substances are taboo in hand baggage. It's always a good idea to check the latest baggage regulations directly on the Eurowings website or ask the airline directly to make sure you're doing everything right.

Checked baggage with Eurowings

The regulations for checked baggage vary depending on the fare booked. The BASIC fare generally does not include checked baggage, while the SMART fare allows you to take one piece of baggage weighing up to 23 kg. The BEST and BIZclass fares have more generous baggage allowances. Additional baggage can be registered for a fee online, via the call center or at the airport. Prices vary depending on the route and time of booking.

Special baggage and sports equipment

Eurowings understands that sometimes special items and equipment need to travel with you. These include musical instruments, sports equipment and other bulky items. Special conditions and fees apply to these items. Prior notification is required to ensure that your special baggage is accepted and that there is sufficient space on the aircraft.

Tips for taking baggage with Eurowings
