*excluding infants travelling on a parent’s lap
Excessively large hand luggage on board of the aircraft represents an avoidable risk of accident. In cooperation with the airlines and upon their express wishes, Airport Weeze carries out format checks of hand luggage in advance. Access to the gates is only possible with hand luggage that falls within the internationally specified, standardised dimensions.
Your suitcase or bag must only be 55 cm high, 40 cm wide and 20 cm deep, and garment bags must not exceed "normal" size. If your bag does not fall within the specified dimensions, please hand this in at the check-in as luggage.
New regulations for hand luggage on all flights originating in
EU countries and connecting flights from Europe.
As of 6 November 2006, there are restrictions on liquids which can be taken into the cabin on connecting flights originating within the EU and on connecting flights from Europe. This also includes all flights within Germany.
Liquid and gel products, e.g. toiletries and cosmetics, are permitted in hand luggage, provided they conform to the following regulations:
- Containers with liquids and similar products may hold up to 100 ml (i.e. the maximum capacity when full as printed on the container)
- All individual containers must be carried together in a transparent, re-sealable (e.g. ‘zip top’) plastic bag, with a maximum capacity of one litre
- Only one bag is permitted per person
- The bag must be shown separately at the Security Control
Medicines and special food (e.g. liquid baby food) required during the flight do not need to be carried in the plastic bag. However these items must also be presented at Security.
These plastic bags are available in our flight bag machines. They are located in the terminal in front of the boarding pass control and in de departure hall (area), right behind the security checks.
Items and bags which do not meet these criteria may not be taken on board the plane. A similar regulation has been in force since 29 September 2006 on flights and connecting flights in the USA.
Duty free items, purchased at airports within the EU or on board an EU-airline, may be carried on board in a sealed bag, provided that proof of purchase dated the same day is produced (not applicable on codeshare flights). The bag is sealed at the point of purchase.
The Disctrict Council Düsseldorf is responsible for passenger control procedures at Airport Weeze.
Please check the latest regulations immediately before your departure at www.ryanair.com,
