Baggage Allowance

The following baggage allowances apply to Icelandair flights only.

If your travel arrangements include more than one airline, other baggage allowances may apply. That may also affect fees applied and any duty-free purchases that you make on your journey.

Please study the baggage allowances of our codeshare and interline partners carefully, as well as the information on your ticket.

You can purchase additional baggage allowance when managing your booking.

You can also check out the rules for what you can and can’t place in your luggage.
