What is checked baggage?

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

  • Remember that the sum of the external dimensions (height+length+width) cannot exceed 158 centimeters (62 inches).
