Hello, how can I help you?
How many pieces/kilos of luggage can I check in?
To be able to take your luggage free of charge, you must ensure that you meet the following size and weight regulations:
- The sum of each piece of luggage must not exceed 158 cm/62 in including the strap, pocket and wheels.
- A maximum weight of 23 kg/50 lbs (you may check in between 23kg/50lbs and 32Kg/70.5 lbs with an excess baggage charge).
The number of pieces that you can take free of charge will depend on the destination and class in which you are flying. Please go to free baggage allowance in the hold if you would like more information.
Any article over the cost-free luggage allowance permitted at check-in will be considered excess baggage.
The excess baggage rates are fixed depending on whether your destination is domestic, medium-haul or inter-continental. Check the rates on Additional Baggage.
You can purchase it prior and can take advantage up to 50% discount on airport charges:
- Making a booking or afterwards at Manage your booking (a first additional suitcase).
- During online check-in if you need to take more luggage.
You can also pay the charge for excess baggage directly with a credit card at the airport Ticket office.
Sometimes, arranging additional baggage online may not be possible:
- Departing from some airports
- Your trip (or part of it) is operated by another airline.
In these cases, you will be able to buy extra baggage at the desk at the airport, at the airport fee.
If you are travelling with excess baggage, please arrive at the airport at least 20 minutes before the recommended time.
The option to pay the charge for excess baggage using your Avios is not currently available.
