Checked-in luggage

The transport of the checked luggage included in the ticket price will have different baggage allowance limits depending on the airline, destination and ticket class. Check your baggage allowance limits with your airline.

If you wish to declare an item of special value in the checked-in luggage, see the section goods of declared value.

Prohibited items in checked-in luggage

Although it may seem surprising, some products which appear to be harmless can be dangerous on-board an aeroplane.

During the flight, variations in temperature and pressure and the movement of the aircraft itself may cause liquids to leak or certain articles to catch fire. For this reason you must not carry the following products in your luggage:

  • Explosives (including detonators, fuses, grenades, mines and fireworks).
  • Gases: Propane or butane (including small camping gas canisters).
  • Flammable liquids (including petrol, methanol, paint, solvents, glue and lighter fuel).
  • Solid flammable or reactive substances (including magnesium, matches and lighters, fireworks and flares).
  • Oxidants and organic peroxides (such as bleaches and abrasive substances).
  • Toxic or infectious substances (rat poisons, infected blood).
  • Radioactive material (including isotopes for medical or commercial use).
  • Corrosive substances (such as mercury and car batteries).
  • Engine parts that have previously contained fuel.
  • Electronic cigarettes.
  • Lithium batteries outside of electronic devices.

Complementary measures

The relevant authority may prohibit items other than those listed above. The authority will make a reasonable effort to inform passengers of such items.

Security staff may refuse to transport baggage in the hold if it contains a non-listed item that they are suspicious about.

Check the attached files for more detailed information on the prohibited items in aircrafts (hand and/or checked luggage) as well as the permitted quantities. Bear in mind that these items may be affected by more than one regulation (airport safety, transport without risk of dangerous merchandise, etc.). In this case, the most restrictive regulation applies.

Contact the airline or Aena if you have questions about a specific item you wish to travel with.

For passenger security reasons, passengers should not check in or transport luggage for stranger.
