Airline Size Allowances For Check-In Luggage

Everything you need to know

Before you leave for your next trip, make sure your suitcase complies with your airline's check-in luggage size restrictions. Since almost all airlines have slightly different measurement allowances, here’s a guide so you have all the information you need. But most importantly: both our Check-In Luggage models comply with all the airlines listed below.

British Airways90754323 kg
Norwegian2507911232 kg
Ryanair8111911910/20 kg
Wizz Air14911917110/20/32 kg

These airlines do not have specific length, width or depth restrictions for your suitcase. The rule here is that the total added size of your luggage (W+D+H) cannot exceed these dimensions. You can find the total size by adding length, width, and depth together.

The Different Check-In Luggage Dimensions

British Airways

On British Airways flights, you can check in a bag up to 90 cm x 75 cm x 43 cm as part of your free check-in allowance. As on most flights, it can weigh up to 23 kg.


When you're flying Norwegian, you are allowed to bring one free item of hold luggage. The maximum dimension for check-in luggage is 250 cm x 79 cm x 112 cm, which can weigh up to 32 kg.


Ryanair's new hold luggage rules mean that you have to purchase an add-on to be able to check in luggage. There are two options, either up to 10 kg or 20 kg, which have to meet the size requirements of 81 cm x 119 cm x 119 cm.

Wizz Air

Wizz Air allows you to bring three items sized up to a total of 149 cm x 119 cm x 171 cm onto the flight. This may weigh up to 10/20/32 kg, and you will have to pay for each piece.


Like Air France, Aeroflot uses the most common size restrictions for checked luggage. You can check in one suitcase with no more than total measurements of 158 cm for free, with a weight limit of 23 kg.

Air France

Customers of Air France are entitled to one free checked luggage item, sized up to 158 cm in total.

Cathay Pacific

Cathay Pacific allows you to bring two check-in suitcases sized a combined total max. of 203 cm, which can weigh up to 32 kg together.


EasyJet lets you put a suitcase with a combined total size of max. 275 cm into hold luggage. Each customer can buy up to three hold bags, with a standard of 23 kg. You can buy extra weight in 3 kgs units, up to a maximum of 32 kg.If you’re travelling with family or friends on the same flight and booking, you can pool your total weight allowance. This means it can be split among the total number of bags booked, as long as no single item weighs more than 32 kg.


On Emirates, the size restrictions allow you to bring a bag with a max. total size of 300 cm with a maximum weight of 32 kg. However, unlike on EasyJet, this is included in your ticket price. In case you are flying to the Americas or have a flight originating from Africa, make sure to check the website as a different concept applies with a maximum total baggage size of 150 cm.


Same as for Lufthansa: On Eurowings flights, check-in luggage may be up to 158 cm total. As on most flights, this bag may weigh up to 23 kg.


Iberia lets you bring one check-in bag with a total size of max. 158 cm, outside of your cabin luggage. The maximum weight is 23 kg, but you can check in up to 32 kg by paying a surcharge per kilo of excess weight or by paying for a 32 kg bag.


The included check-in baggage on KLM allows you to bring an item sized up to a total of 158 cm onto the flight. This may weigh up to 23 kg.


Lufthansa’s rules for check-in baggage are quite similar to most of the European airlines. Approved measurements are 158 cm total and your luggage can weigh a maximum of 23 kg.

Turkish Airways

Turkish Airlines allows one piece of free check-in luggage sized up to a total of 158 cm. The weight restrictions are a little tighter, meaning that you can bring a bag weighing max. 23 kg.


When you're travelling with Vueling, the size and weight requirements are as follows: A maximum weight of 15, 20, 25 or 30 kg, and a maximum size of 158 cm. Also, you have to purchase an add-on for each piece of luggage that you want to check in.

Maximum Weight for Checked Luggage

Depending on the airline and the class you’re flying, there are different weight limits for your check-in luggage. Whilst one free piece of luggage up to 23 kg is allowed on most airlines, some airlines like Ryanair and Easyjet charge for the first bag that you want to check-in. In premium economy or business class, allowances are more generous, but this also depends on the airline.

A Tip for Longer Trips

Before you start packing, take a suitcase that fits all airline requirements, so you won't have to worry about size at all. If you want to really travel in style, you can purchase a luggage set. Both are nearly indestructible and designed with your needs in mind, such as a removable charger that keeps you connected on the go. In case you're travelling with both a cabin and a check-in bag, you can refer to our cabin luggage size guide to find out what you can take on board.
