Travel Baggage

Have everything with you on vacation

General information

We ask all passengers to clearly label their travel baggage with their name, home address and holiday address. Should your baggage be lost or damaged, please report this immediately to the ground handling staff at the arrival hall. As airlines have limited liability for checked-in baggage, important items should be carried in your hand baggage. In any case, it is advisable to take out additional luggage insurance.

Your checked/hold baggage may be opened by authorities for security reasons. If it is locked, SunExpress shall not be held responsible for any damages which may occur.

International flights

On international SunExpress flights, each passenger is allocated a baggage allowance of 20 to 40 kg, depending on the chosen SunFare and route.
