I am transporting oversize baggage – what should I do?


Current information and recommendation for passengers:

Thank you for protecting yourself and other travellers at the airport by wearing a face mask, keeping a safe distance, washing your hands frequently and using hand sanitizersWe recommend checking the entry requirements of the country you are travelling to and the measures taken by your airline.

ALERT: Please note that according to a new measure implemented by the Dutch government as of 23 January 2021, in addition to a negative RT-PCR test result, all passengers coming to the Netherlands must present also a negative COVID-19 antigen test result before their departure to Amsterdam. The test must be performed no later than 4 hours before boarding the aircraft. Passengers can undergo the antigen test directly at the airport at the testing point in the connecting corridor between terminal buildings, which operates daily from 4:00 a.m. to midnight. However, we recommend checking the available provider's capacity online on the GHC Genetics’ website. More information about testing can be found here.

If you are planning to travel with an oversize or non-standard piece of baggage, we advise you to discuss the check-in first directly with the airline company (or your tour operator in case of charter flights). The conditions for the transport of such baggage differs according to the airline company.

Check-in procedure for oversize baggage

  • If you plan to check in a non-standard piece of baggage, it is advisable to inform the airline company (or tour operator) about this fact as early as when you are booking the flight or purchasing the ticket and to check the check-in requirements in advance.
  • When at the Airport, go to the standard check-in desk and inform the check-in staff about the oversize piece of baggage.
  • The staff will check the baggage in, attach a baggage tag to it and then ensure it is transported to the oversize baggage counter.
  • Then the handling company personnel will take care of your baggage while you go on to security (Terminal 2) or passport control(Terminal 1). At the arrival airport, you will pick up your baggage at the oversize baggage counter.
