Please refer to your airline regarding their rules on carry-on baggage. We suggest you only carry items with you that you necessarily need. This will save time at the security check. Medicines and precious items should always be in your carry-on baggage.
What is permitted in the carry-on bag?
There are the following restrictions on liquids in carry-on baggage: you can carry liquids only in containers with a volume not exceeding 100 ml in a transparent, resealable bag no larger than 1 liter. Suitable plastic bags can be purchased for a small charge at the yellow vending machines in front of the security check area in all terminal buildings.
You may carry, for example:
These regulations do not apply for liquids purchased beyond the security check area, e.g. in the duty-free shops.

Special bulky luggage counters where you can check in your bulky items separately after checking in can be found in all the terminal buildings.
For further information regarding additional charges and conditions of carriage, please contact your operating carrier or your travel agency.
The baggage reclaim for bulky luggage is located in the immediate vicinity of the regular baggage reclaim carousels. We hope for your understanding as reclaiming bulky luggage may take more time compared to usual baggage on the carousel.
Your baggage has not been on the carousel or you have found your baggage damaged? The handling agent of your airline will take care of the issue. Your baggage will usually be found within 24 hours and consigned to your home address free of charge.
Please contact your airline for baggage tracing directly at the Airport!
If you are staying in Hanover or at the airport for a longer period of time, simply store your baggage with us. We are happy to keep it safe for you. Please contact the Airport Service Center on the Arrivals level in Terminal B for baggage storage.
