Cabin and checked-in baggage limit varies from airline to airline. Some airlines have baggage weight restrictions and others have a specific number of pieces permitted. Please note that restrictions on baggage apply to both checked–in bags as well as cabin baggage. Often, you’ll be asked to pay for any checked–in luggage that exceeds the weight permitted. Cabin luggage that exceeds the weight limit is not permitted and will have to be checked in.
Keep these pointers in mind:
- Remember to find out checked–in and hand baggage allowances.
- Don’t pack valuables in your checked–in baggage.
- Carry medication, money and important documents in your hand baggage.
- Most airport security regulations permit limited quantities of liquids, gels or pastes that must be carried in containers not exceeding 100ml. This includes medicines, shampoo, creams, hair gel, hair spray, suntan lotions, toothpaste, liquid or aerosol deodorants, perfumes, cosmetics, water and other drinks, soups and syrups etc. The containers must be carried in a separate clear plastic, zip–top or re–sealable bag. Some countries do not permit any liquids in your hand luggage.
