Passenger rights


The passenger is entitled to different benefits and compensation.
3 HOURS DELAY: The EU passenger rights regulation protects passengers for delays of over 3 hours. The flight distance is important in determining the amount of the compensation or refund (calculated according to the great circle method):

  • For short distances of up to 1,500 km, the passenger is entitled to €250 compensation from Eurowings.
  • Between 1,500 km and 3,500 km, the passenger receives €400 compensation.
  • For long distances from 3,500 km there is compensation of €600.

5 HOURS DELAY: Here it is possible to withdraw from the flight. The airline is obliged to reimburse the costs incurred or to offer alternative transport.
Departure on the next day: In this case, you are entitled to a free overnight stay at a hotel and transport to and from the airport


If the flight has been cancelled, then the airline must offer a replacement flight. Affected parties can use the airline's booking options online or switch to other means of transport. The airline will pay for 2nd class train tickets or coach travel. Eurowings will also cover accommodation costs if passengers have to use a hotel due to a cancelled flight.


Eurowings makes every effort to resolve any baggage damage quickly. The damage must first be reported to the local Eurowings check-in service. The airline assumes no liability in the case of wear and tear on the luggage or damage caused by the luggage itself. The same applies to oversized or heavy baggage, packages that are unfit for air transport (boxes, plastic bags), scratches or dents on luggage, as well as soiling.
A written notification of the damage should be made within the prescribed period of 7 days.

The following documents are also required:
  • Booking code (online confirmation number)
  • Damage report from the destination airport

  • Your bank details - not your credit card details (please provide your IBAN and SWIFT code for foreign accounts)
  • Your telephone number for any queries and messages
  • Your baggage tag


Baggage loss should be reported as quickly as possible to the "Lost & Found" desk in the arrivals area of the destination airport. Unfortunately, later reports cannot be considered. In the first 5 days after the bag is lost, the airport where the loss was reported is responsible for the search. Then the Eurowings head office takes over the search - on the Eurowings website you can find out about the progress of the search under "Luggage Transfer."

The following documents should be submitted by email in the case of lost luggage:
  • Booking code (online confirmation number)
  • Loss report from the destination airport
  • The contents list (BIF) provided by the airport, which you must complete and sign in full
  • Your bank details - not your credit card details (please provide your IBAN and SWIFT code for foreign accounts)
