What is checked baggage?

Free baggage allowance is what you can take in the plane’s cargo hold without paying for an additional cost. The number of allowed pieces of luggage, their dimensions and their characteristics depend on the region which you are travelling to and from.

  • Remember that the sum of the external dimensions (height + length + width) cannot exceed 158 cm (62 in).
  • No piece of baggage shall exceed the allowed weight and dimensions. Should any of your pieces of baggage exceed the limits, you must pay for excess baggage.

Check the dimensions and weight allowed for your luggage

Restriction for checked baggage wrapped in plastic

As of March 15, 2019, we will stop accepting checked baggage (in the hold) wrapped in plastic for all flights departing from El Dorado Airport in Bogotá. This measure is made following the recommendations of the authorities, in order to facilitate the review of suitcases that are selected for inspection in search of narcotics and / or prohibited substances.
