Carry-On

Here, you can find out how much carry-on you can take on your Condor flight free of charge and what else you need to know.

General Provisions

  • The amount of carry-on you are allowed to bring into the cabin on your Condor flight depends on the flight zone of your destination and the booked fare.
  • For safety reasons, the ground staff and cabin crew must stow excess, unpermitted items of baggage in the cargo hold with the other checked baggage.
  • Small bags must be stowed under the seat while larger hand baggage may be stowed in the overhead locker. Passengers seated in exit rows, behind cabin separation walls or in the Business Class must stow all hand baggage in the overhead bins.
  • If the permitted allowance for carry-on is exceeded, excess baggage charges will be charged at check-in. Higher charges may apply at gate (zones 1-2: $85 / €75 / £65; zones 3-5: $110 / €100 / £85).
  • Liquids may only be transported in containers with a maximum capacity of 100 ml. All containers must be packed in a plastic bag (max. 1 litre).
  • The Condor safety team has banned any carriage of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 devices from all our flights, both as checked baggage as well as carry-on

Please note: On USA-bound flights, there are stricter security regulations, including those that apply to the passenger and carry-on security checks. We therefore recommend that you allow more time than with for flights with departures to other countries.

What items are allowed in your carry-on?

Pointed and Sharp Objects and Lighters

Pointed or sharp objects such as knives or scissors are not allowed in your carry-on!

In addition, the USA authorities prohibit lighters of any type from being carried in checked baggage, carry-on and on the traveller’s person.

Please make sure that you do not bring a lighter on flights to or connecting through the USA.

Rules on Liquids, Aerosols and Gels (LAG)

The rules on liquids, aerosols and gels apply to all flights departing from airports in the European Union, Iceland, Switzerland, Norway, the USA and Canada. Please note that other countries outside the EU have also adapted their regulations to these rules.

“Liquids, aerosols and gels” (LAGs) include pastes, lotions, liquid mixtures containing solids as well as the contents of pressurized containers such as toothpaste, hair gel, drinks, soups, syrup, perfume, shaving foam or cream, and other items with a similar consistency. Restricted amounts of these may be taken into the aircraft cabin under the following conditions:

  • Containers with liquids and similar products may only hold up to 100 ml (based on the maximum filling volume printed on the item)
  • All of the individual containers must be transported together in a single, transparent and resealable plastic bag (e.g. standard "zip closure" bags) with a maximum capacity of one litre
  • One bag per person
  • The bag must be presented separately at the security checkpoint.

We advise you to get these plastic bags in advance and pack the LAGs that you want to carry in your hand baggage before you leave home.

Medication and special dietary products (e.g. baby food) needed on board during the flight can be carried outside the plastic bag. These items must also be presented at the security checkpoint. When asked to do so, passengers must be able to demonstrate that the LAGs are actually the items covered by the exemption (e.g. by showing a prescription for medication).

If items and bags do not comply with the specified size, you will not be allowed to take them on board the aircraft.

Duty Free items (such as beverages or cosmetic items) that were bought on the day of the flight in the airport Duty Free zone or on board an aircraft can be carried in a sealed bag, provided it contains the receipt or proof of purchase.

Condor has no influence over these legal regulations and advises passengers to take them into consideration when planning their trip, and to limit their hand baggage to the essential necessities.
