EasyJet Cabin Baggage

Passengers are permitted to bring one piece of hand luggage as a carry on that will travel with them in the cabin. There are no weight restrictions on this baggage, however it must be 56cm x 45cm x 25cm including handles and wheels.

EasyJet Plus, FLEXI fare, Upfront and Extra Legroom customers can bring an additional small bag (such as a handbag or laptop) at a maximum size of 45cm x 36cm x 20cm and must be placed under the seat in front.

Hand baggage is free. However if it is larger than the size restrictions, the Bag Drop desk will charge you £37 to check the bag into the aircraft hold. If you go straight to the boarding gate and your bag is oversized, you will be charged £47.
