Checked Baggage

Passengers with baggage to be checked-in, start their journey through the airport at a check-in desk. Find the number of the check-in desk handling your flight or flights operated by your carrier on the information board. Proceed to the desk to drop your baggage off there. Your checked baggage allowance limits are provided in your ticket and in information materials published by your carrier. Please check the information in advance. Baggage allowance limits of individual air carriers vary.

After the weight and size of your baggage is checked, it is fitted with a tag showing its final destination and handed to the handling company. Its workers make sure your baggage is loaded onto your aircraft. You can proceed to the security (passport) control point.

Cabin Baggage

Most air carriers allow passengers to bring carry-on items on board. Please check the carry-on baggage allowance limits with your carrier as cabin baggage allowance limits of individual air carriers vary.
We strive to always ensure the maximum safety and thus thoroughly check all carry-on items.


To ensure smooth and comfortable passage through security control, please check in advance the list of items prohibited aboard aircraft. Additional details are provided under the Items Prohibited/Allowed on Board section .
