Regulation 185/2010 of 4 March 2010 and Regulations 245/2013 and 246/2013 of 19 March 2013

Decision n° 2013/1587

These regulations apply to all flights departing from the European Union as well as Australia, Canada and the United States.

Passengers are advised to check information for other countries when booking.

It is important that you read this information, in order to prevent delays during security procedures and to avoid having your items confiscated before boarding.

ADVICE

Check in the maximum number of items in your hold luggage and only retain items which are absolutely essential for your journey in your hand luggage.

If you are travelling without hold luggage and with cabin luggage only, you must place your liquids in a closed transparent bag (i.e. a “freezer bag” of approx. 20 cm x 20 cm).

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

You must also separately present:

  • All large electronic devices: laptops, large digital cameras, DVD readers.
  • Remove your coat or jacket

Prepare your luggage before boarding:

Items to be taken into the cabin with you: laptops, camcorders, cameras and films that deteriorate under powerful X-rays.

Make sure your hand luggage does not exceed the permitted dimensions (length x width x height = 115 cm including wheels and handles, max. 10 kg). These dimensions may vary depending on the airline.

 

Items which must be placed in your hold luggage: any sharp or blunt object with a blade longer than 6 cm.

Attempts to take these items into the cabin may mean that you have to abandon them at the security checkpoint.

Hold luggage weight restrictions vary depending on the airline and the class of ticket. In general, luggage should not exceed 20 kg in economy class, 30 kg in business class and 15 kg on charter flights.

Please consult your airline for further information.
