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 Monarch Airlines

Luggage max size: Unrestricted
Luggage max weight: 20kg
Max hand luggage bags per person: 1+ 1 smaller bag
Hand luggage max size: 56 x 40 x 25cm
Hand luggage max weight: 5kg
More information: Monarch allows up to 10kg of hand baggage free of charge. Total hold baggage allowance is up to 20kg per person (up to 30kg for Vantage Club Silver & Gold members) which can be split into up to five separate bags. There is a fee payable for all hold baggage, with savings of up to 40 per cent available if paying online.

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