Hand Luggage Allowances

Hand Luggage Allowances

Hand luggage allowances seem to differ from airline to airline, depending on who you are flying with and what ticket you have purchased. I have also found most of the airlines also count any extra bags filled with purchases made at the airport, count as an item of hand luggage. So please make sure if you purchase anything at the airport, you either make sure you leave room in your bag to fit the items in, or ask at the airport if the item can be collected when you return home.

I have compiled a list of most of the well known airlines, and there current requirements for hand luggage, which are stated on there website. Always double check your booking/ticket to make sure you are taking the correct size and weight, so that you don’t get charged at the airport.

I have also included the link to each airlines website for more information and so you can double check the requirements in case they have changed.
