Safety Regulations on Hand Luggage


Size of cabin baggage

All airlines place limits on the number, the size, and the weight of what you can carry on to a flight with you. Check with your airline for any specific hand luggage policies and the number of items of baggage that can be taken onto the aircraft. Usually the dimensions of your hand luggage must be no larger than:


  • 55 cm x 40 cm x 23 cm (Austrian/Lufthansa)

  • weight 5 to 8 kg (depending on your airline)

carriage of Liquids

The following safety regulations on hand luggage apply to all departures and onward flights from EU airports, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland:


  • You may continue to carry liquids, creams, pastes, gels, aerosols, etc. in your hand luggage in packages of up to 100 ml (3.5 fluid ounces, UK) in volume.
  • These must be packed in transparent, resealable plastic bag of up to one litre in volume.
  • One container is permitted per person.


Safety Regulations on Hand Luggage

The transportation of medications, baby food and special nutrition needed on board is permitted outside of the plastic bag.


Please note, that the following items must be presented seperately at the security controls:


  • the transparent plastic container, with maximum volume of 100 ml (3.5 fluid ounces, UK) each
  • laptops and electronic equipment (mp3 players, mobiles, etc)
  • jackets and coats
  • all items purchased in airport shops



Please note!

Items and bags not meeting these requirements may not be taken on board the aircraft.


All items you purchase on board must be transported in a sealed plastic container and marked with the flight number and date. The colleagues on board the aircraft will be happy to do this for you. In the event that you urgently require other liquids and wish to check these in with your luggage, please pack these in such a way that they are secure against knocks, leakage and breakage. We cannot accept liability for any damage to luggage that has been checked in. The EU regulations for cabin baggage apply to all destinations from Austria, including the USA. The new rules will still permit passengers to buy under certain conditions larger quantities of liquids at airport shops beyond the point where boarding passes are controlled.
