Baggage allowance

Hand Luggage/Cabin Baggage Allowance

As regulations change regularly it is always advisable to check your airline’s baggage requirements, even if you are a frequent traveller.

Airlines differ in their hand luggage requirements so check beforehand if they have a weight restriction and whether you are allowed one piece of hand luggage or two.  Some airlines allow one piece of cabin baggage plus either a standard size Duty Free bag containing goods bought at the airport or a small under seat bag such as a hand bag.

Below is a brief summary of some of the major airlines baggage requirements in Summer 2016 who currently fly to Tenerife South Airport.

Passenger cabin bag allowance

EasyJet – Cabin Baggage Allowance Summer 2016

All Passengers:

  • One Cabin Bag
  • Maximum size of 56 x 45 x 25cm including handles and wheels
  • One standard size bag of duty free goods from the airport
  • In addition to your cabin baggage allowance you are allowed an overcoat, shawl, umbrella, crutches, walking frame/stick
  • If travelling with an infant (under 2 years) you may also carry in addition a small baby changing bag.

EasyJet Plus, Flexi Fare, Upfront and Extra Legroom Passengers:

  • One Cabin Bag as above
  • Plus ONE additional small under seat bag (e.g. a handbag or laptop) Maximum size of 45 x 36 x 20 cm which will need to be placed under the seat in front

There is no weight restriction for cabin baggage. As long as you are able to place the bag into the overhead locker and get it out again without assistance then the bag will be accepted into the cabin.

Ryanair – Cabin Baggage Allowance Summer 2016

All Passengers:

  • One Cabin Bag – weighing up to 10 kg
  • Maximum dimensions of 55 x 40 x 20 cm
  • Plus ONE small bag up to 35 x 20 x 20 cm

Due to  space limitations in the cabin only 90 large cabin bags (55 x 40 x 20 cm) can be carried, any other bags will be carried free of charge in the aircraft hold.

Passengers who purchase Priority Boarding will not be asked to place their cabin bag in the aircraft hold, unless absolutely necessary.

There is no cabin bag allowance for an infant (under 24 months). The accompanying adult can carry a separate baby bag up to 5 kg in addition to their own cabin bag allowance.

Jet2 – Cabin Baggage Allowance Summer 2016

All passengers:

  • One Cabin Bag – weighing up to 10 kg
  • Maximum dimensions 56 x 45 x 25 cm

Monarch – Cabin Baggage Allowance Summer 2016

All passengers have two options:

  • One Cabin Bag no bigger than 56 x 40 x 25 cm (including wheels and handles). Maximum weight of 10 kg
  • Small duty free bag from the departure airport


  • Two separate pieces of hand baggage but the combined size not to be greater than 56 x 40 x 25 cm (including wheels and handles) and a combined weight not heavier than 10 kg
  • Small duty free bag from the departure airport

On busy flights Monarch cannot guarantee they can fit all cabin bags in the cabin. Having two smaller bags and putting one under the seat in front of you will help to avoid your bags being put in the hold.

Checked In/Hold Luggage

In order to avoid any unnecessary fines imposed by your airline it is always recommended that you check their specific requirements on bags which are checked into the hold.  Airlines can impose heavy fines for any bags which are heavier than the weight allowance so make sure you that you weigh your bags before checking them into the hold.    Any bags which exceed the booked in weight limit will have an Excess Baggage Fee charged per kilogram.

Also make sure that any bags which you put into the hold are strong enough to go through the normal baggage handling process.  Any items which are particularly fragile or of monetary value may be best kept on your person or in your cabin bag.
