Carry-on baggage

Carry-on baggage

Carry-on baggages are items that you can bring on board and that can either be stowed under your seat or above your seat, or placed in the spaces designated for this purpose.

Please note that handbags are not considered baggage. The same is true for strollers for children not exceeding 25.5 cm (10 in) in diameter and 92 cm (36 in) in length when folded.
