However, the size limits for carry-on baggage imposed by the airline, as well as the liquids, aerosols & gels restrictions and the rules regarding prohibited items have to be observed. More information is available here.

What to do when your baggage is missing?

Arriving passengers who could not retrieve their baggage on their arrival at Brussels Airport are requested to file a missing bag report at the Swissport baggage desk in the baggage reclaim hall or online. More information.

Departing passengers whose baggage is missing at their destination, are requested to contact the local Lost & Found service to file a claim. Contact your airline for further information.
