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 Baggage Allowance

EasyJet – Cabin Baggage Allowance 

EasyJet Cabin Baggage Allowance – Summer 2018

All Passengers:

  • One Cabin Bag
  • Maximum size of 56 x 45 x 25cm including handles and wheels. There is no weight limit but EasyJet ask that you are able to lift the bag into the overhead locker.
  • One standard size bag of duty free goods from the airport
  • In addition to your cabin baggage allowance you are allowed accessories such as an overcoat, shawl, umbrella, crutches, walking frame/stick

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
  • You are also allowed an additional under seat bag if you are travelling with an infant under 2 years of age on your lap.

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.

EasyJet state that as cabin space is limited and on many flights there is not enough room for everyone’s cabin bag on board, if the overhead lockers are full they will put your bag into the aircraft hold.

RyanAir – Cabin Baggage Allowance 

RyanAir Cabin Baggage Allowance Summer 2018

As of 15th January 2018 you can only take 1 Small Bag on board your RyanAir flight unless you purchase Priority and 2 Cabin Bags.

Your second 10kg bag must be no bigger than 55 x 40 x 20cm in size and must fit into the sizers at the gate before being tagged and put into the hold free of charge.

Children and Infants

If you purchase a child ticket, your child can bring the amount of hand luggage and checked luggage that their ticket type allows.

On very busy flights the airline may ask you to check hand luggage into the cargo hold if the overhead compartments are full – even if your hand luggage is within the permitted size and weight limits.  In these situations we recommend that you remove any travel documents, ID papers, medication and fragile or valuable items from your carry-on bag.

 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.
