Hand baggage allowances for Eurowings

It’s worth noting that the Eurowings website previously said a personal item was permitted. However, at the time of our most recent update, that has been removed, and they appear to no longer allow a personal item.

Number of items allowed:

  • For most ticket types: 1 carry on item
  • BIZclass fare: 2 carry on items

Maximum allowed in imperial: (converted)

  • H x W x D = 21.5 x 15.5 x 9 in
  • Weight = 17.6 lbs

Maximum allowed in metric: (official)

  • H x W x D = 55 x 40 x 23 cm
  • Weight = 8 kg

If you choose to bring a garment bag instead of a standard carry on item, the maximum dimensions are 57 x 54 x 15 cm / 22.4 x 21.2 x 5.9 in.

Due to space constraints, sometimes there might not be enough room for everyone’s carry on baggage. In this case, your cabin bag will be checked into the aircraft’s hold. This is free as long as your baggage fits within the Eurowings carry on baggage restrictions. If you have booked a SMART fare, your carry on luggage is guaranteed to stay with you, but with a BASIC fare it is not guaranteed.

Fees will be charged to check any luggage that is larger or heavier than the permitted hand luggage size and weight restrictions. These charges are higher at the gate then if you were to purchase checked luggage when booking your ticket, and fees charged at the gate can only be paid with Maestro or credit card.
