Baggage Restrictions by Airline

Getting ready to fly onboard a plane?

Short breaks, city breaks or family trips – wherever you’re going, it’s good to know how much you can pack for your holiday.

Hand luggage or cabin baggage is the type of luggage you are allowed to bring on the plane with you. Each airline defines its own size and weight restrictions for carry-on.

Taking cabin luggage is ideal for shorter breaks and you can avoid checked baggage fees.

You can save yourself a lot of stress by knowing what size and weight limit you are allowed for your flight before you travel.

There’s no universal standard. Airlines set the rules, some might charge you extra fees if your cabin luggage is too large or too heavy.

Confused about the weight and size? We’ve put together a quick handy guide for popular airlines. However, make sure you check with your airline and view their luggage size chart before you travel.
