Baggage allowance 2019

Airlines regulations and requirements for hand luggage and checked in luggage change regularly. It is always advisable to check your airline’s baggage requirements, 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.

Below is a brief summary of some of the major airlines baggage requirements in Summer 2019 who currently fly to Tenerife South Airport.

EasyJet – Baggage Allowance 

EasyJet Cabin Baggage Allowance – Summer 2019

Cabin space is limited and there is only room for up to 70 cabin bags. All remaining cabin bags will be put into the hold and can be collected from the baggage carousel on arrival in the terminal.

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.

EasyJet Checked In Baggage Allowance

Each customer, which includes children and infants can purchase up to three hold bags.  A standard hold bag is 23 kg.  Extra weight can be purchased in 3 kg units up to a maximum of 32 kgs per bag.

If you are travelling with friends and family on the same flight and booking then you can pool your total weight allowance.

No individual item can weigh more than 32 kg. 

There are three baggage options to choose from:

  • 15 kg bag
  • 23 kg bag
  • 32 kg bag

Ryanair – Baggage Allowance 

Ryanair Cabin Baggage Allowance Summer 2019

1 Free Small Personal Bag

Every passenger may take on board one small personal bag (handbag/laptop bag etc) to a maximum dimension of 40cm x 20cm x 25 cm.  This bag must be able to fit under the seat in front of you. 

Please note, If you are a non priority customer and the free small bag does not meet the above specifications you will be charged a gate bag fee of £25 and the bag will be placed in the aircraft hold.

If you wish to take a further 10kg bag you have two options as below:

Priority Customers (Priority x 2 Cabin Bags)

In addition to one small personal bag, priority customers may also take on board a further wheelie cabin bag to a maximum weight of 10 kg which can be stored in the overhead locker.

The charge for the 10 kg bag varies between £6-£10.

Non Priority Customers 10kg Check In Bag

You also have the option to purchase a 10kg Check In Bag.  The bag will be checked in at the Ryanair bag drop desk before going through security.

A couple of advantages of choosing this option are that you can check in liquids more than 100ml and don’t have to transport your bag through the airport. 

The charge for the checked in 10 kg bag varies between £10-12.

Duty Free Bags

In addition to the options above you are also permitted one duty free bag per person in the cabin.

Top Tips:

If you want to choose the priority service and to take your 10kg wheelie bag on board with you it is advisable to choose this option and pay for it at the time of your booking.  There is only limited availability (approximately 90 bags) for this option.

It is generally cheaper to pay for any baggage options at the time of your booking.
