The maximum size for items of hand luggage is 55cm x 40cm x 20cm per bag weighing no more than 5kgs (11lb). Weights and sizes may vary by airline. However, airlines can apply their own operational policies governing the number of items of hand baggage which may be taken in to the aircraft cabin. If in doubt, please call our Administration department on 01489 866987 to check.
Where possible, put all liquid items in your hold baggage. This includes water and other drinks, creams, sprays, pastes and gels. Liquids, gels and aerosols are only allowed in individual containers of up to 100ml. All containers must fit comfortably in one, transparent, re-sealable bag no larger than 20cm x 20cm (e.g. a freezer bag).
Requirements can vary slightly depending on the airport.
If you are carrying more than your allocated amount you will have to pay an excess baggage charge (typically £15 per extra kilo) at check-in and we cannot guarantee that the airline will accept all of your baggage. Please note that most airlines will not accept a bag that is over 23kg or may change extra for it being 'heavy'. It is always best to spread your luggage across a couple of bags to avoid this. Please call our Administration department on 01489 866987for more advice.
If you are unable to carry items in your usual baggage allowance, we recommend you call our Administration department on 01489 866987who will be happy to go through the available options with you.
