Jet2 hand luggage: Dimensions and measurements for flight passengers | Travel News | Travel
Jet2 is one of the largest airlines in the UK, as well as being named one of the most punctual airlines.
The airline flies to a number of destinations across Europe, making it a popular option for British travellers.
However, many low-cost carriers have made changes to their hand luggage rules regarding what can be taken onboard for free.
What are the current rules for bags in the cabin for Jet2, and is it free?
Jet2 passengers can currently carry a suitcase up to 10kg in weight into the cabin for free.
It must measure no more than 56cm x 45cm x 25cm, including the wheels and the handle.
This is the average size for travellers and is bigger than Ryanair, Thomas Cook and TUI.
The airline also allows a second smaller bag, such as a handbag, laptop bag or airport duty-free bag with them onboard as well. Buggies are allowed on for free if travelling with a child.
The small bag must fit under seats or in the overhead compartments although this is at Jet2’s discretion.
Alcohol bought in duty-free is not allowed to be drunk onboard the flight.
Many airlines are removing free hand luggage, such as Ryanair and Wizz Air.
Passengers must pay to check a bag into the hold when flying with Jet2.
Up to three bags can be taken per passenger, each weighing no more than 22kg.
The cost per bag depends on both the route and the airport, however this can range from £10 to £45 per bag.
For anyone who exceeds the baggage allowance, it costs £12 per kg. It can only be exceeded up to 32kg.
Other generous airlines for baggage being allowed onboard for free include EasyJet and British Airways.
EasyJet allow just one piece of hand luggage onboard yet it has no weight limit.
British Airways, however, allow two pieces of hand luggage, which includes a small handbag, up to 23kg each.
Passengers could soon be able to take more liquids in their hand luggage, something that has often been a bugbear for many travellers.
Currently restricted at 100ml, new airport technology could soon end the liquid rules.
