Occasionally, we may not always have space to stow all cabin baggage safely on board.

Non-compliant fees will be applied at the boarding gate for all cabin bags that do not comply with our cabin baggage size and weight limit policy.

In addition to your allowance stated above, you may carry on board with you the following items for free:

  • A handbag

  • A pocket book or purse, which is appropriate to normal travel dress and is not being used as a container for the transportation of articles which would otherwise be regarded as baggage

  • A Wedding Dress / Gown

  • 114x60x11(185cm) Garment Bag
