Carry-on Baggage

You're allowed to bring one personal item with you onboard, free of charge. This personal item must fit within the dimensions of 41 cm x 15 cm x 33 cm (16" x 6" x 13") and must be able to fit under the seats in the aircraft.

You can purchase carry-on baggage for an additional cost. Carry-on baggage can exceed the dimensions of 52 cm x 23 cm x 38 cm (21" x 9" x 15").

Checked Baggage

You can purchase up to four pieces of checked baggage for an additional fee. No one piece of baggage can exceed the overall dimensions of 157 cm (62") or exceed 23 kg (50lbs) in weight.

No baggage can exceed 32 kg and no dangerous goods are allowed onboard or in the checked baggage. You must comply with the airline's policy or baggage will not be accepted. If you wish to buy excess baggage, you can do so in the booking process.

Personal Item

You're allowed one free personal item. This could be a purse, laptop bag, briefcase, small backpacks, tote bags, etc. The maximum dimensions are 41cm x 15cm x 33cm (16" x 6" x 13").

Cabin Classes

Economy Class

Economy Class is the only cabin class available on Swoop flights. The airline offers a no-frills service at a cheap price and allows you to add on the services that you want. This means you can keep the cost down by choosing to stick with just a seat-only ticket or pay a little extra to add things like baggage, food and WIFI to your reservation.

Seats

Seats are set out in a 3 x 3 configuration, with 29" of seat pitch and 17" of width.

You can purchase seats with extra legroom, which give 36" of seat pitch. These seats are available on the right half of the first six rows and are available at an extra cost.
