Luggage Inspection

Luggage inspection before departure

Luggage inspection is obligatory before take-off

Before your luggage may be loaded into an aircraft, it must be inspected to ensure that it does not pose any aviation security risks. This is done in an automated procedure after it is checked. It may occasionally be necessary to open a bag without your being present. We therefore ask you not to use any padlocks.

Passengers, who start their travel from Frankfurt Airport, are recommended to arrive at the airport 3 hours before departure.
