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.

How much can you take?

There are changes to the baggage policy for tickets issued as of April 3, 2017.

On flights to and from Europe, in Economy Class you can take for free 2 pieces of 23 kg each. In Business Class you can take for free 2 pieces of 32 kg each.
