As standard, each of our passengers is permitted one piece of hand luggage in the cabin. This item should weigh no more than 5 kilos with the maximum dimensions 56 x 45 x 25cm (including all handles, side pockets and wheels). It must be able to fit under the seat or in the overhead locker.

For some flights, the hand baggage allowance may differ from the above. Please check with your tour operator prior to travel.

Any essential medications required during your journey should be carried in your hand luggage and must be certified as authentic by a doctor’s letter.

We strongly advise you to pack any liquids that you don’t need while travelling in your hold baggage. However, if you do need to travel with liquids, please be aware of the following restrictions that apply to all liquids you wish to carry through an airport security checkpoint:

  • All liquids must be in individual containers not greater than 100ml capacity. They must be placed in one transparent resealable bag, no larger than 20cm x 20cm (8in x 8in) in size, and fit comfortably inside the bag so it can be fastened closed.
  • Only one bag per passenger is allowed. The bag must be clear and resealable, such as ‘ziplock’ bags or bags with pressable seals. Larger bags or bags that are not sealable, such as fold-over sandwich bags, are not allowed.
  • Each passenger must remove their clear plastic bag from their hand baggage and place it on the conveyor belt for X-ray screening.
  • Liquids in containers of more than 100ml capacity must be packed in your hold baggage.
  • Exemptions to the liquids rule applies for liquid medicine or baby milk/food. Essential liquid medication in quantities of more than 100ml must be certified as authentic by a doctor’s letter and must be presented in their original containers.
