Luggage which weigh more than the free luggage allowance and special luggage or sports equipment can be checked in if there is enough space in the hold, though an additional charge may be made. Most airlines will transport child seats, prams, buggies and wheelchairs free of charge.

It is important to note that you should inform the airline when you book your ticket about any special luggage you plan to take with you.

At the airport
You should report first of all to the normal check-in desk at Dortmund Airport. You can then hand in your special luggage at the bulky luggage desk (desk 01).
