How many items/kilos of luggage can I check in?

The number of items you can take for free will depend on your ticket fare. If you don't want to pay an excess baggage fee, make sure you comply with the size and weight limitations:

  • No bag should exceed 158 cm in length, including the handle, pocket and wheels.

  • The maximum weight is 23 kg but you can check in up to 32 kg by paying a surcharge per kilo of excess weight or by paying for a 32 kg bag.

Any item that exceeds your free checked baggage allowance is treated as excess baggage. Both the price of the additional item (15 kg, 23 kg or 32 kg bag as required) and the cost per kilo of excess weight (from 23 to 32 Kg) are fixed amounts based on the destination (short, medium or long-haul).

Check your free checked baggage allowance and the prices for additional items and excess weight on our Checked baggage allowance page.

Once you've added an extra item, you can'tcancel it or get a refund.

If you can't add an extra item online, you can pay the excess baggage surcharge at the check-in desk at the airport. However, this depends on:

  • The departure airport.

  • Whether your trip (or part of it) is operated by a different airline.

If you are travelling with excess baggage, you should arrive at the airport at least 20 minutes before the recommended time.
We do not currently offer the option of paying for extra bags or excess weight with Avios.
