Weight and measurements

Hand luggage

Generally, a suitcase may be taken as hand luggage in the airplane cabin. Some companies allow passengers to carry one piece of additional luggage: a bag, backpack, laptop etc. Passengers may also carry crutches or walking sticks, baby carriers, etc., if necessary.

Hand luggage suitcases should generally not measure more than 115 centimetres in height and length. And the total weight of all your hand luggage should not be more than 12 or 18 kilos, depending on the size of the cabin. Suitcases exceeding this limit will need to be checked in.

However, both these measurements and the weight limits for suitcases may vary depending on the company. Check with your airline. And check in case they plan on merging your flight with another airline.

Checked-in luggage

The transport of the luggage included in the ticket price will have different baggage allowance limits depending on the airline, destination and ticket class. Check the baggage allowance limits with your airline.

Flights with destinations to the United States, Canada and other American countries sometimes use a "pieces" system, which involves limiting the number of pieces of luggage transported and imposing specific volume allowances.

Excess baggage

Travel conditions permitting, companies will allow you to check in additional weight for your luggage allowance when you pay the amount established by each company as an excess baggage fee.
