Worried about your weight? Find out how much baggage your flight allows before you start worrying about those kilos.

Carry-on 

We recommend that you carry any items of value in your hand luggage during the flight. All other items should be placed in the hold luggage, unless you may need them during the flight.

Passengers are allowed to carry one item of hand luggage through airport security. The item must be no larger than 56cm (22 inches) tall, 45 cm (17.7 inches) wide and 25 cm (10 inches) deep. These guidelines may vary depending on the airline you are flying with.

Other bags, for example handbags, may be carried within the single item of hand luggage. 

All items carried through security will be screened by x-rays. 

Laptops and large electrical items must be removed from the hand luggage to be screened separately.

If you have more bags than the permitted allowance or your bags exceed the weight or size restrictions, you will be charged additional fees.  

Please contact the airline for more information as this will vary by destination and departing airport.
