Baggage Allowance

Always worth checking luggage and baggage allowances before you travel

Baggage allowances can be complicated, varying according to routes and class of seat and taking into account the number, weight and dimensions of bags, free allowances, and ever-changing aviation rules. In general, excess baggage and special items can be carried for an additional fee.

For all airlines flying into and out of the UK, a recent safety requirement has been introduced restricting the weight of each single item of luggage to 32kg. This is not your full baggage allowance, rather a measure to reduce strains and injuries among baggage handling staff.

Baggage allowance for British Airways

Luggage max size: 90cm x 75cm x 43cm (35.5in x 29.5in x 16in)
Luggage max weight: 23kg
Max hand luggage bags per person: 1+ 1 smaller bag
Hand luggage max size: 56cm x 45cm x 25cm (22in x 18in x 10in)
Hand luggage max weight: 23kg
More information: British Airways passengers are permitted one standard-sized bag and one laptop-sized bag, handbag or briefcase as free hand luggage. There is a free hold baggage allowance on every BA flight of 23kg.

Remember, this information is liable to change so always check on your airline and airport websites before you start packing.
