Hand luggage: number of bags, size and weight per airline company

hand-luggage-per-airline-company

The price of short-haul plane tickets has been decreasing these past years, mostly thanks to competitive low-cost companies. However this also means that many airline companies are finding other ways to add additional charges to make up for the price of tickets. Many companies are now charging to put baggage in the hold and have also imposed restrictions on hand luggage, which can normally be taken on board free of charge.

If you decide to travel with just hand luggage, you must remember to measure the size of your hand luggage as well as weigh it with a luggage scale for example. You should also check the rules for the airline you are flying with before leaving home, because if you break these rules you will have to pay a supplement at the airport, which can cost you a surprising amount of money.

When buying your cabin luggage, make sure that you check the dimensions because there is no standard size and you can easily choose one that is not suitable for certain airlines (every centimetre counts!). You should also consider buying light luggage so you can pack more, all while respecting the airline’s weight limit.
