Baggage allowances are determined by airlines and will depend on factors such as fare paid, class of travel, route, aircraft type, government regulations, and the airline’s commercial and health and safety policies.
Airlines generally set a ’free baggage allowance’, expressed by ’weight’ and by ’piece’. They may allow, and set charges, for baggage not meeting these criteria (excess baggage).
Travellers are advised to check baggage allowances with their airline when booking to avoid confusion or complications at check-in.
At the airport you can wrap your suitcases, backpacks, boxes and carry-on luggage in tough plastic film that protects your baggage on its whole journey.
Unusual or outsize baggage
Please inform your airline or handling agent about any outsize or unusual items of baggage well in advance of departure.
Baggage reclaim upon arrival
After passport control, follow the arrivals signs to the baggage reclaim area. Look for your flight on the information screens and wait for confirmation that your baggage is ready. When it is, the carousel number will be displayed.
Free baggage trolleys are provided for your use and plenty will be available in the reclaim hall.
