Baggage

allowance

Use our calculator to work out your checked baggage and cabin baggage allowance. 

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.

Due to government restrictions, you're only permitted to carry a personal item on board, such as a handbag, backpack or laptop bag, weighing up to 5kg. You may check in your remaining cabin baggage for free before you fly.
