Thinking about Packing

The RCC team will be taking Condor Airlines, which allow the following free baggage-

1) You may take one carry-on item weighing up to 6 kg/13 lbs and 21.6x15.7x7.8 inches or smaller.

2) In addition to your carry-on item you may take one personal item (a laptop, purse, camera, etc).

3) You are allowed one free checked bag weighing up to 50 lbs and 62.2 inches (length+width+height).

See more details here. 

Any additional baggage or weight will get charged extra fees. A second checked bag will be at least $50 both ways (payed at airport) and will have the same weight and size requirements.

See more details here.

See rules for checked baggage here.
Please read the regulations for your carry-ons as well.

If you're coming to Poland with us and using a flight other than Condor, be sure to check their requirements so we all get through the airports smoothly!

Remember that you'll have to remove your shoes, jackets, belts, and any other baggy clothes or metal on you. Girls, don't wear bobby pins or metal hair clips. All laptops and electronics will have to come out of their bags/cases to go through security. Try to only carry what is light and simple to reassemble. :-)

You may be taken aside and patted down, questioned, or swabbed for explosives, so be prepared to take it in stride. These people are doing their job and we want to be able to move through quickly. Don't get nervous. It's just routine.
