Luggage information

Luggage allowances vary from airline to airline. For detailed information, please also contact your airline or travel agent.

Current notice

Due to the current increased passenger volume, there may be waiting times at the baggage claim. We recommend to reduce the amount of baggage, if possible, and to avoid transporting perishable goods as well as important documents and medications in checked baggage as well as bulky luggage. Mark your luggage for better recognition from the outside and inside with individual signs.

Your baggage allowance depends on your booked travel class. Please check your travel documents for details.

You are additionally charged for excess luggage. Please inquire ahead of time, because the permitted allowances and rates vary from airline to airline. A pre-departure declaration is recommended.

If you notice damage to your luggage after arrival or if it is delayed, please report your luggage to your airline as damaged or lost. Many airlines offer online loss reporting, for more information click here.


Please note that only the airline's baggage tracing service is responsible for your luggage and the lost and found office at Frankfurt Airport cannot help in these cases.

Please consider the legal requirements for carrying dangerous good in your luggage. The IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations can be found here:  Dangerous Goods Regulations

Before your luggage can be loaded onto an aircraft, it must be checked for air security. This is done in an automated process after check-in. In individual cases, it may be necessary to open your baggage without you being present. Therefore, lock your suitcase as usual. However, we ask you please do not use padlocks.

You can check  bulky items  at your airline's regular check-in counter.
