Germanwings is a German low-cost airline. It has recently merged with Eurowings, and now operates under the Eurowings banner.
Check out the Eurowings Baggage Allowance page for more information about up-to-date baggage allowances for Germanwings/Eurowings flights.
|Checked Baggage Allowance||7/10|
|Excess Baggage Fees||7/10|
One free piece of hand luggage is allowed, weighing up to a maximum of 8kg, with maximum dimensions of 55x40x20cm.
Be careful when packing so as not to exceed these limits, otherwise you will be forced to check-in your bag and be charged a fee for an additional checked bag.+ Show Full Policy
Every passenger can carry on one piece of hand luggage weighing up to 8 kg and measuring no more than 55 x 40 x 23 cm free of charge. These represent the maximum weight and size for hand luggage.
There is a 20kg limit on checked baggage, but you will be charged for every bag to be checked. If you exceed the 20kg/44lbs limit, there will be an extra "overweight" fee added on.
The only exception to the original checked baggage fee is for "Best Fare", where one bag up to 20kg may be checked for free, and "Flex Fare", where up to 5 bags may be checked. The 20kg limit still applies to the combined total weight of all 5 bags.+ Show Full Policy
The cost of bringing checked luggage depends on the fare type you purchased, as well as by origin a and destination of flights. You will find exact pricing for your flight when registering your luggage online through the Germanwings page (it is always cheaper to pre-book your luggage online, rather than at the airport). Below are guidelines for what is included and how much to expect to pay for your checked baggage on your Germanwings flight.
Germanwing BASIC fare
There is no free baggage allowance for the Basic fare passengers.
The cost of the first bag, which may weigh up to a maximum of 23kg/50lbs, starts at 15 EUR, depending on your route. A second 23kg/50lbs bag will cost closer to 75 EUR. There is an additional surcharge for sports equipment.
Germanwings SMART fare
The first 23kg/50lbs bag is free and included in the price of the fare.
Bringing a second 23kg/50lbs bag will set you back around 75 EUR, depending on the route of your flight.
Germanwings BEST fare
Two bags of 23kg/50lbs each are included free of charge in the Germanwings BEST fare. As an added bonus, you also get a reserved spot for your carry-on bag, so no fighting for overhead compartment space.
