Carry-on baggage are items that you can bring on board and that can either be stored under the seat in front of you, on the overhead shelf or placed in the spaces designated for this purpose.

Passengers are responsible for their own baggage. Please only bring baggage that you can carry and store under the seat in front of you or on the overhead shelf unassisted.

Please note that purses, briefcases, laptops and small backpacks are considered as personal items.

Carry-on baggage allowance may differ depending on your destination.
