In addition to cabin baggage, Eurowings baggage allowance permits each passenger to carry on board a further small item of hand luggage, not exceeding 40 cm x 30 cm x 10 cm (e.g. laptop bag, handbag, briefcase, folder satchel, etc.) free of charge.

Eurowings baggage allowance, in this case, states that a fee from €8 per route as well as per passenger (the exact amount depending on the route) should be paid when booking the first piece of luggage weighing up to 23 kg on the website.
    This amount is increased to €30 (the exact amount depends on the route) for bookings at the airport counter.
    Eurowings baggage policy states that for each additional bag weighing 23 kg, an additional charge of €75–150 will apply.

    If the passenger wants to book the second piece, the Eurowings hold baggage fee of €75–150 has to be paid.
  • BEST fare
    Passengers who have booked the BEST fare can check in two items of luggage weighing 23 kg at no extra charge and can also bring two pieces of cabin luggage with them on board.
