Airlines regulations and requirements for hand luggage and checked in luggage change regularly. It is always advisable to check your airline’s baggage allowances, even if you are a frequent traveller.
Each airline differs 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 handbag.
