Checked baggage

What is the maximum weight and size for checked baggage?

Maximum weight and dimensions of checked baggage per passenger are 50 pounds in economy class and 70 pounds in business class (applies to XXL fare), and 158 linear cm (height+length+width). Please review the baggage included in each fare.


If your baggage exceeds the maximum dimensions and weight allowance, you may carry it with an additional charge as overweight or oversized baggage if it does not exceed 230 linear cm and 99 pounds. Due to baggage regulations, it is not possible to exceed the weight of 70 pounds per piece on flights to/from Europe, even if you pay for the overweight.

Do I need airline approval to transport any items? 

Certain items can be carried in checked baggage with prior authorization from the airline or the authorities. Some items don't require prior confirmation, you just need to pack them in such a way that the contents are protected and no risk is run during handling. Find out more about each of these items.
