The less the better
Safety and comfort on board are the two main priorities in air travel. That's why rules concerning hand baggage are very clear: you should only carry essential items. Everything else must be placed in the hold. Be familiar with restrictions and know how to pack for your next trip.
How many bags can I carry as hand baggage?
In general, you may carry only a single item of baggage into the aircraft, which must respect weight and size restrictions.
It is advisable that you pack all the belongings you want to take with you on the plane on a single baggage item - personal effects, laptop or table, camera or other.
Because airlines may choose to store in the cargo hold any hand baggage that exceeds restrictions or fails to comply with safety regulations, you should contact your airline beforehand.
What are the size restrictions for hand baggage?
There are maximum weight and size restrictions, so you should check with your airline to find out which apply to your trip.
What may I carry and what may I not carry in my hand baggage?
Your hand baggage should only contain items that are absolutely essential, such as personal items and documents, toiletries or any drugs you need to carry with you. Also note that some items may have to be transported in the hold.
Do I need special permission to carry insulin, needles, syringes and injection pens in my hand baggage?
No special statement to that effect is required. However, we recommend that passengers bring the respective medical certificate or other relevant documents certifying the need for such items during the trip, in order to facilitate and expedite the security screening.
