The weight and size of your hand luggage are checked at the airport and will be checked in if necessary. Additional charges are incurred if you exceed your free baggage allowance. Please note that these fees are higher than the regular check-in.

Please note that on some flights your hand luggage bag must be stowed in the cargo hold due to the aircraft type.

Your free baggage allowance includes bags that you can check in at no additional cost. The size, weight and number of permitted free bags are based on the fare you booked, the flight route and your frequent flyer status. You can also find information about your free baggage allowance on your ticket or booking confirmation.

  • a maximum of 158 cm (height + width + length) and

Larger, heavier or additional bags are carried as excess baggage. This applies to all scheduled flights operated by Austrian Airlines.
