Baggage

allowance

Use our calculator to work out your checked baggage and cabin baggage allowance. Due to government restrictions across our network, you will be required to check in your cabin baggage before you fly. You will only be permitted to carry a personal item on board, such as a handbag, backpack or laptop bag. This can weigh up to 5kg. 

You can split your checked baggage allowance over multiple items and check in as many bags as you like within that allowance.

If your journey starts or ends in the US, or if you're travelling with any of our partner airlines, different baggage rules may apply. Always check your booking confirmation before your flight.

Infants and children

Infants 7 days - 23 months

If you’re travelling to or from the US and Canada, infants are permitted to take one bag weighing up to 23kg. On all other routes, infants are permitted to take one bag weighing up to 10kg.

Children 2 – 11 years 

If your child is booked on a children’s fare, normal baggage rules apply. You can use our baggage calculator to understand how much you can carry.
 

Pushchairs, carrycots and car seats

If you are travelling with infants and children, you can also carry one pushchair, or one carrycot or one car seat for free, in addition to their checked baggage.

Is there anything else you need to bring?

We’ve made flying with golf clubs and other sport equipment simple with our flexible baggage policy. Most sports equipment can be included as part of your baggage allowance, and if you’re flying with golf clubs, you can take one golf bag for free, in addition to your checked baggage allowance.
