What charges apply for checking in luggage?
If you book your first piece of luggage up to 23 kg on the website, a surcharge of €9 - 30 per route and passenger (the exact amount depends on the route) will apply. This amount is increased to €18 - 60 (the exact amount depends on the route) for bookings at the airport counter. If you check in more than one bag weighing 23 kg, an additional charge will apply.
Luggage can be registered at the time of booking the flight or at a later date.
Passengers who have booked the SMART fare can check in one item of luggage weighing 23 kg (no special or excess luggage) at no extra charge.
Passengers who have booked the BEST fare can check in two items of luggage weighing 23 kg (no special or excess luggage) at no extra charge.
Excess luggage can either be registered online or via telephone at the time of booking or added at a later date via the "My flight" area. Excess luggage can also be added via our mobile services in the "Add services" area. If this is not done, a higher fixed charge will apply when checking in excess luggage at the airport.
Special luggage includes sports equipment, pushchairs and cots and is subject to special terms. Please label each item of luggage to be checked in with your name or another personal mark.
Special terms apply for passengers travelling with sports equipment and special luggage.
If you don't have a booking number but instead have an etix® ticket number, or if you have booked a Eurowings flight with one of our partner airlines or in a travel agency, then luggage regulations may vary. Please contact the relevant airline or your travel agency.
All regulations apply to Eurowings flights with an EW or 4U flight number, regardless of the operating airline. For our partner airlines' flights, which do not have an EW or 4U flight number, the conditions of the respective airline apply. These can be viewed on the airlines' own websites. These partner airlines currently include Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Condor, United Airlines, Air Canada and All Nippon Airways.
