Please leave dangerous substances and objects at home (see adjacent illustration). These will be confiscated during the security check. They include

  • explosives
  • gas bottles and containers, potentially-flammable solid or liquid substances and
  • weapons and ammunition.

Pointed and sharp objects such as knives, scissors, nail files, self-defence sprays, hairsprays, etc. should not be packed in hand baggage! Further information on objects forbidden on flights can be obtained here, and details of increased security measures can be viewed here. Please contact your airline for detailed information.

Non-permitted hazardous goods (e.g. sprays, petrol lighters) and dangerous items (e.g. knifes, scissors) may be left with airport security / lost and found office (+49 711/948-3355 for a small fee) and collected afterwards (up to 6 weeks).

Return service for dangerous objects

In the event of you having a dangerous object in your possession which you may not take on your flight, you may write your address on an envelope and return the dangerous object by post for a C.O.D. fee (carriage forward) of 3.00 Euro. Please ask for further information at the airport.

Certain electrical and electronic appliances such as mobile phones or laptops should not be used during the flight. Information is printed on your airline ticket or can be obtained from your airline.

Do you have a pet? Or do you have bulky luggage such as a surf board, children's buggy, golf caddy or bicycle? Even these do not present a problem. Your airline or travel agent will be happy to make the necessary arrangements for you.

Baggage conveyance

Baggage trolleys are available in all parking blocks and car parks, at terminal entrances and in baggage reclamation areas for your convenience. We unfortunately cannot carry your baggage for you, so we have thought of a few bright ideas to help you: in contrast to many other airports, baggage trolleys at Stuttgart Airport are free of charge, and you only need to insert a coin as a deposit (1 Euro, 50 Euro cents, 25 US cents or 1 Swiss franc)!

And for even greater convenience: We provides a personal baggage porter service at Stuttgart airport. A porter can be booked for a small fee by telephoning 0711/948-4500 (Fax: 0711/948-4501). If you have already arrived at the airport, please use one of the free telephones on the information pillars (tel.: 4500).

Baggage location

A porter can be booked for a small fee by telephoning 0711/948-4500. Please use one of the free telephones on the information pillars (tel.: 4500) if you are in one of the terminals.
