Problems with your baggage

Certain events, such as the current situation in the airline industry, which is suffering from bottlenecks and a shortage of staff, adverse weather conditions, technical problems in the baggage handling areas or a bag tag becoming detached, can sometimes lead to baggage items being damaged or not arriving at the destination airport at the same time as their owners.

We are always very sorry when this happens and take all the necessary steps to get your baggage back to you as soon as possible or to compensate you for any damage it may have suffered.
