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.
