Delayed or damaged baggage

If you have received damaged baggage, you will find important information here. If your checked baggage is not available at the airport on time, or if you are missing certain items, we will support you in tracking the baggage.

Information on baggage delays or damage

Our customers check in around 50 million items of baggage every year and each item is given a baggage tag. These enable bags to be assigned to the relevant flights in the airports’ baggage handling facilities and loaded into the aircrafts’ cargo holds.

Certain events, such as adverse weather conditions, technical problems in the baggage handling areas or baggage tags being torn off, may potentially result in bags being damaged or not arriving at the destination airport at the same time as their owners.

We very much regret this and take all the necessary measures to reunite passengers with their baggage as quickly as possible or to compensate them if an item of baggage is damaged.
