Free baggage


You don’t travel light? No worries! Special luggage allowance regulations apply to all our topbonus Silver, Gold, Platinum or Service Card holders on all flights operated by airberlin and NIKI.


topbonus status members and topbonus Service Card holders also have the option of checking in a piece of sporting equipment** instead of an additional piece of baggage. So, by registering in advance before the deadline, status members can transport up to 32 kg and topbonus Service Card holders up to 23 kg of sporting equipment on any airberlin or NIKI flight without paying a supplement.
