From 10 February 2021, passengers travelling with easyJet will see a revised hand luggage policy on board and – according to comments on social media – it’s not really an improvement.
As any airline, passengers can take one small cabin bag on board (maximum size 45 x 36 x 20cm, including any handles or wheels), which must fit under the seat in front of them. Only if they have booked an Upfront or Extra legroom seat they can also bring an additional large cabin bag (trolley, standard carry-on) on board. The move is very similar to the policies of other low-cost companies such as Ryanair but regular passengers can’t pay extra to bring a larger bag on board.
“We’re making some changes to our cabin bag policy to help improve boarding and punctuality and give customers certainty of what they are allowed to bring on board.”
For all travel from 10th February 2021, the seat you have booked will determine what bags you are able to bring on board.
Everyone can take one small cabin bag per person on board (maximum size 45 x 36 x 20cm, including any handles or wheels), which must fit under the seat in front of you. That should be enough to bring all the essentials for your journey or for a short trip. There’s no weight limit, but they do ask that you are able to lift and carry your bag yourself. If you have booked an Up front or Extra legroom seat you can also bring an additional large cabin bag on board.
Cabin bag allowances:
All customers can bring on board:
One small cabin bag,
Maximum size 45 x 36 x 20 cm (including any handles or wheels),
Bag must fit under the seat in front of you.
Customers who have booked an Up front or Extra legroom seat can also bring on board:
One additional large cabin bag,
Maximum size 56 x 45 x 25 cm (including any handles or wheels),
Bag must fit in the overhead locker.
These seats can be selected at the time of booking, or at any time before you check-in via Manage Bookings, or by contacting Customer Service Team.
EasyJet Plus cardholders and customers who have bought a FLEXI fare can also bring two bags on board. See table below for full details.
EasyJet check bag sizes before you board. If your cabin bag is bigger than the maximum size or if you bring a large cabin bag to the departure gate without the correct seat selection, it can’t go in the cabin and they will have to check it into the aircraft hold for a charge. Be sure to check your cabin bag allowance before you travel to avoid any charges.
Each customer including children and infants can buy up to three hold bags. A standard hold bag is 23kg. You can buy extra weight in 3kgs units, up to a maximum of 32kg per bag. If you’re travelling with family or friends on the same flight and booking, you can pool your total weight allowance. No single item can weight more than 32kg. Maximum total size (length + width + height) = under 275cm.
