Any item exceeding these weight and size restrictions must be checked at the counter and transported in the hold, subject to checked baggage fees, if applicable. If you get at the boarding gate with excess hand baggage, it will be transferred for transportation in the hold as an additional bag for a fee.

What is Eurowings’ policy on checked baggage?

Some fares include a free checked baggage allowance. When you have booked a fare that doesn’t include a free baggage allowance, you may register checked baggage upon payment of a fee.

Up to five items of baggage per passenger may be checked at the desk. Each item must not exceed 32 kg in weight. Checked baggage may be registered during the booking process or afterward. Services, such as registering baggage, excess baggage, and/or sporting equipment, may be added to a booking up to the Web Check-in deadline::

  • Online, on the Eurowings website, using the mobile portal or via the Eurowings app.
  • Through Eurowings call center.
  • At the airport.

Once registered, you cannot deselect the baggage you have added to your booking. Once you have checked in online, baggage can be registered only at the airport counter, where higher charges may apply.
