What is easyJet’s new hand luggage policy?

Robert Irwin

Upfront and extra legroom seats cost between £7.99 and £39.99 each way depending on the route, flight and time of booking. This means that being guaranteed an extra piece of hand luggage will cost at least £15.98 for a round-trip.

Is there limited capacity, like on Ryanair?

Ryanair’s similar hand baggage policy stipulates that the number of people who can book priority boarding – which includes an additional larger cabin bag – is capped at 95 per flight. This is to ensure all bigger bags can fit in the overhead locker.

There are currently between 42 and 63 upfront and extra legroom seats available on each easyJet flight. All the seats that allow extra bags to be brought are in the front of the aircraft, and it is unclear how the overhead locker space will be allocated.

What about hold luggage?

Each customer including children and infants can buy up to three hold bags. A standard hold bag is 23kg, but you can also pay to take a 15kg bag. You can buy extra weight in 3kgs units, up to a maximum of 32kg per bag.

If you’re travelling with family or friends on the same flight and booking, you can pool your total weight allowance.

No single item can weigh more than 32kg. Maximum total size (length + width + height) has to be under 275cm.

Hold bags cost from £6.99 to £35.49 for a 15kg bag, £9.49 to £42.49 for a 23kg bag, and £12 per extra 3kg after that (up to a maximum of 32kg per bag).
