Hand luggage and baggage allowances and regulations

The maximum allowable weight is on the inside of your air ticket. 

  • Hand luggage (or cabin baggage) usually should have a maximum lenght of 55 x 40 x 20 + max 10 kilo.
  • For checked in luggage, the maximum weight is usually between 15 and 20 kg (per suitcase, per person).

You should always check size limits with your airline and airport before you travel. Airlines may also have their own rules about the number of bags you are allowed to take on the aircraft. It's best to contact them if you have any questions.
