Baggage Allowance

Got baggage questions? We’ve got baggage answers.

Add Baggage

Please note that as of June 11, 2020, the rules on carry-on baggage have temporarily changed. Passengers are only allowed to take one item on board, which must fit under the seat. Your carry-on bag will have to be placed in hold during check-in or at the gate (no extra charge). Duty-free goods bought at the airport are allowed on board in addition to one item.

We have taken this proactive measure to minimize any health risks to our passengers and staff on board by limiting touchpoints on the airplane. Read more about temporary changes to baggage allowance on our FAQ page. For more information on your upcoming flight, please visit our Safe Travels page.

  • In addition, a completely folding stroller is allowed free of charge.
  • An approved child seat may be brought on board if the child sits in it during the flight.

Travelling with multiple airlines

If your travel arrangements include more than one airline, other baggage allowances may apply. Extra bags for connection flights with other airlines must be purchased at the airport upon check-in (they cannot be purchased on our website). This may also affect the fees that apply to your journey, and any duty-free purchases that you make during your travel.
