Passengers will receive a personal item that must fit within 42cm x 32cm x 25cm (17" x 13" x 10") and a maximum dimension of 10kg (22 lbs).

Travellers can also add a carry-on baggage with a fee that doesn't exceed a maximum dimension of 56cm x 45cm x 25cm (22" x 18" x 10") and lighter than 12kg (26 lbs).

Any items onboard must fit within the overhead lockers and under the seat. Otherwise, the item must be transported as checked baggage.

Checked Baggage

Checked baggage isn't included in the fare but passengers can buy excess baggage as long as it's not heavier than 20kg (44lbs) and not larger than 158cm (62") in the sum of three dimensions.

No individual baggage can exceed 32kg.

At Alternative Airlines, we recommend travellers book their excess baggage during the initial booking process as it's often more expensive to purchase at the airport. Please contact our customer service team if you've already booked with us. Otherwise, follow our guide on how to book excess baggage.
