New cabin bag policy for travel from 10th February 2021


We’re making some changes to our cabin bag policy to help improve boarding and punctuality and give customers certainty of what they are allowed to bring on board.


For travel before 10th February 2021


For customers travelling before 10th February 2021, our existing cabin bag policy applies. Click here for full details.


For travel from 10th February 2021


For all travel from 10th February 2021, the seat you have booked will determine what bags you are able to bring on board.


Everyone can take one small cabin bag per person on board (maximum size 45 x 36 x 20cm, including any handles or wheels), which must fit under the seat in front of you. That should be enough to bring all the essentials for your journey or for a short trip. There’s no weight limit, but we do ask that you are able to lift and carry your bag yourself.


If you have booked an Up front or Extra legroom seat you can also bring an additional large cabin bag on board.


Cabin bag allowances:

All customers can bring on board:

  • One small cabin bag
  • Maximum size 45 x 36 x 20 cm (including any handles or wheels)

Bags icon

Customers who have booked an Up front or Extra legroom seat can also bring on board:

  • One additional large cabin bag
  • Maximum size 56 x 45 x 25 cm (including any handles or wheels)
  • Bag must fit in the overhead locker

These seats can be selected at the time of booking, or at any time before you check-in via Manage Bookings, or by contacting our Customer Service Team.


easyJet Plus cardholders and customers who have bought a FLEXI fare can also bring two bags on board. See table below for full details.

 


We check bag sizes before you board. If your cabin bag is bigger than the maximum size or if you bring a large cabin bag to the departure gate without the correct seat selection, it can’t go in the cabin and we’ll have to check it into the aircraft hold for a charge. Please ensure you check you cabin bag allowance before you travel to avoid any charges. See bags table on our fees and charges page for full details

If you do not select a seat when you book, our system will automatically allocate your seat when you check in. Please be aware that if you are auto-allocated an Up front or Extra legroom seat, your cabin bag allowance will be one small under seat cabin bag.


easyJet Plus cardholders and FLEXI fare customers


In addition to the standard cabin bag allowance, as an easyJet Plus cardholder or FLEXI fare customer, you can also bring on board a large overhead cabin bag by selecting an Up front or Extra legroom seat when you fly. You can do this, free of charge or at a discounted rate, as one of the benefits of your membership or fare.


If you are an easyJet Plus cardholder and have booked a Standard seat, or have not selected a seat, please show your easyJet Plus card at the gate to allow you to board with your large overhead cabin bag. FLEXI fare customers should show their boarding pass.


In the unlikely event that there is no space left in the overhead lockers on board, we will tag your large cabin bag for you at the gate and place it in the hold, free of charge.

Check your cabin bag size


If you’re unsure whether your cabin bag fits within our maximum dimensions you can use our handy bag sizing tool on the easyJet: Travel App (iOS only). Simply open the app and click on your trip itinerary to find the bag sizing tool. You can then use your mobile phone camera to size your cabin bag. If it fits inside the maximum cabin bag dimensions for the bag type you’ve selected, you’re good to go! If it doesn’t fit, don’t worry! You can always change your seat or add hold luggage quickly and easily through the app or within Manage Bookings.


Hands Free


Take the hassle out of carrying your cabin bag through the airport by going Hands Free.
It’s also a great value option to bring a bit extra for your trip. Simply drop your cabin bag off at the easyJet Plus Bag Drop when you arrive at the airport and it’ll be amongst the first on the baggage carousel when you get to your destination.


Go Hands Free and enjoy:


  • Use of easyJet Plus Bag Drop
  • Stress free security
  • Boarding early or at your leisure
  • Having all your bags delivered amongst the first on the baggage belt on arrival

Hands Free is available for bags up to a maximum size of 56 x 45 x 25 cm (including any handles or wheels) and can be purchased in advance of your flight or at the easyJet Plus Bag Drop when you arrive at the airport. A small fee applies, which can be found on our fees and charges page. You can take a small cabin bag on board (max. size 45 x 36 x 20 cm including any handles or wheels), which must fit under the seat in front of you.

For travel before 10th February 2021


You can take ONE cabin bag per person on board. There’s no weight limit but we do ask that you are able to lift it into the overhead locker.


Space for cabin bags in the overhead lockers is limited, so they fill up quickly. All remaining cabin bags will be put into the hold and can be collected from the baggage carousel on arrival in the terminal.


We check bag sizes before you board. If they’re bigger than the maximum 56x45x25cm (including handles and wheels), they can’t go in the cabin and we’ll have to check them into the aircraft hold for a charge. See the bags table on our fees and charges page for full details.
