Hand baggage is the baggage that the passenger can carry in the cabin of the aircraft.
The maximum weight and standard dimensions are as follows:
- 55 cm. x 35 cm. x 25 cm (the sum of the three dimensions must not exceed 115cm)
- The handles, pockets and wheels are included in these dimensions.
- The maximum weight is 8kg.
- Packages that exceed these limits must be stowed in the hold.
In addition to the suitcase each passenger may carry one item from the following list:
- A handbag,
- A laptop,
- A tablet.
This additional item must fit under the seat in front of you:
- Hand baggage will be checked at check-in and at the boarding gate. If the measurements or weight of your luggage exceed the limits allowed, your suitcase will not be accepted as hand baggage.
- Your suitcase must be light enough for you to store it easily in the overhead locker.
- In the interest of everybody's comfort, suitcases which do not comply with these requirements must travel in the hold with a possible additional charge. This measure is intended to improve both your personal safety and that of other passengers, as well as your comfort during the flight, given that the capacity of the overhead lockers is limited.
- Due to space limitations in the cabin luggage lockers, even if your luggage complies with the limits on size and weight, our staff may consider it necessary to store it in the hold at no extra cost to the passenger.
CABIN BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE FOR INFANTS AND CHILDREN
Babies up to 2 years old can carry as hand luggage a bag with the food, drink and other items they will need during the flight.
Children aged over 2 have the same luggage allowance as adults.
You can bring a limited amount of liquid, cream and gel through security:
- Carry a small amount of liquid inside your hand baggage in containers no larger than 100 ml or equivalent (100 g). The containers must be put into sealable transparent plastic bags with a capacity not exceeding 1 l or approximately 18 x 20 cm in size. Each passenger may carry on only one such plastic bag.
- Carry medicine and foodstuffs for special diets, including baby food; you may be asked to prove their authenticity and your need for these items.
- Carry liquids purchased at the duty free of any airport or airline. The duty-free liquid and receipt must be sealed at the time of purchase in a security bag that must not be opened until the final destination.
- If you have a connecting flight at another airport, inform the security staff so that the liquids can be resealed in a new security bag.
All other liquids, aerosols and gels must be put in hold baggage.
