Therefore, please ensure your cabin bags do not exceed the maximum number and sizes, i.e. the length of 55cm, the width of 45cm and the depth of 25cm including handles, side pockets and wheels.
Place all additional items inside your cabin bag or small personal item. Cabin baggage and small personal items that exceed the maximum permitted amount, size and/or weight will be transported as checked baggage for a fee in the aircraft cargo hold.

Storing Cabin Baggage on Board

All cabin bags go into the overhead lockers, while small personal items are stored under the seat in front of you. The storage capacity is limited. Once it is full and we have no space on board, for safety reasons, we will need to check in your cabin bag or small personal item to the aircraft hold, even if you have not exceeded your baggage allowance, and transport it free of charge.
