- * Baggage of a pre-determined weight per person may be checked in as hold baggage for a flight, with weight limits varying by airline

The weight limit for hold baggage is determined by the given carrier, and relevant information can be found on the website of the airline. A fee for the number of excess kilograms has to be paid if the weight limit is exceeded, the extent of which depends on the distance of the destination. A boarding pass will only be issued once the passenger has paid the fee for excess baggage.
The necessary markings are attached to hold baggage during check-in by check-in staff. Bags which cannot be transported on the baggage belt (e.g. sports equipment, baby carriages, musical instruments, etc.) will be delivered to the aircraft by loaders. Hold baggage also undergoes security screening. If any items requiring closer inspection are discovered by security staff during screening, the owner of the bag will be escorted back to the checkpoint and asked to open the item. Its contents will be inspected in the presence of the owner.
Some objects and materials endanger the security of aviation and thus may not even be transported in hold baggage. For example, welding torches, cartridges for siphon bottles, Scripto View lighters, camping gas equipment and friction matches may not be transported on board aircraft at all.
Paints, alcohol, gas oil, lighter gas, all liquids with a flash point of less than 150 F (65 °C) , flammable liquids, diving cylinders or any other pressurized cylinders, etc., will qualify as dangerous materials. Special rules apply to the aerial transportation of such items; please contact your airline for details. Check-in staff have the right to reject any object which does not comply with requirements for the transportation of dangerous materials.
Only arms bags which bear a clearly visible label showing FIREARMS UNLOADED may be used to transport arms. A maximum of 5 kg of ammunitions may be checked in as baggage in appropriate packing, i.e. in a shock-resistant box. It is advisable to inquire at your carrier’s customer service in advance about the relevant rules, which may vary from airline to airline.
Lost baggage can be reported in the arrivals transit area, or after passport control, in the Lost and Found office located in the baggage reclaim area. Records are taken of the reported lost item. Baggage delivered late or subsequently found is delivered at the passenger’s request to the designated address.
