Cabin baggage

A single item of hand baggage may not exceed 8kg (10kg with laptop) and dimensions may not exceed 55cm x 40cm x 23cm. Passengers who have chosen the JustFly, FlyDeal or FlyClassic fare categories can take one item of hand baggage on board with them.
Customers in the FlyFlex/FlyFlex fare category, Business Class passengers and holders of topbonus Gold or Platinum Cards1  may also carry a second item of hand baggage.

In addition one of the following items (max. 40 cm x 30 cm x 10 cm; 2 kg) may be taken into the cabin free of charge:

  • a laptop case
  • a lady’s handbag, a lady’s purse or a gentlemen’s handbag 

In addition, the following items may be carried if the passenger is dependent on them: a wheelchair (to be handed in at the gate), a pair of crutches and/or walking aids, other prostheses, a doctor’s bag.

There are baggage gauges available at the airport for all passengers to check the size of their hand baggage. Adherence to the hand baggage regulations is strictly enforced. Since the space available on board for hand baggage is limited, you may be asked, for your own safety, to check in your hand baggage if the aircraft is filled to capacity. 

Please be aware of the increased security checks on flights to the US. Electronic devices such as mobile phones and laptops in particular are subject to an operational check. Devices which are not fully functional may not be carried by passengers entering the US.

If one of your flights is operated by one of airberlin's airline partners, the hand baggage allowance is subject to the terms and conditions of that particular airline.

We recommend that passengers carry valuables, medication, perishable or fragile items in their cabin baggage.
