Hand luggage rules at Ryanair, easyJet, Jet2, TUI and British Airways for 2024

If you're booking a short break in 2023, you'd better swot up on the details surrounding hand luggage because if you don't, it could cost you. Holiday companies often see an influx in bookings during the first full weekend of January as many Brits plan getaways to look forward to throughout the year.

If you are planning a trip, it's important to be aware of the latest airline baggage information - else it could cost you. Breaking the current weight allowances, size restrictions and hand luggage rules you could face a hefty fine.


All passenger fare types include a small personal bag, which must fit under the seat in front of you. This must be a maximum of 40cm x 20cm x 25cm.


EasyJet permits one small cabin bag per person on board for free. It can be a maximum size of 45 x 36 x 20 cm (including any handles or wheels) and needs to fit under the seat in front of you.


Jet2 allows passengers to carry on board one piece of hand luggage free of charge, as long as it weighs no more than 10kg and is no larger than 56cm x 45cm x 25cm, including any wheels and handles.

If your hand luggage weighs more or is larger than this, it will need to be checked into the aircraft hold, and you may have to pay an additional charge.

You can also bring a small, personal item on board (such as a handbag, laptop bag or airport purchase), as long as it is placed underneath the seat in front of you.


On a TUI Airways flight, you can carry one piece of hand luggage of up to 10kg for free. The maximum dimensions of your hand luggage can be 55x40x20cm and you must be able to lift your hand luggage into the overhead storage compartments yourself.

British Airways

Customers are allowed to carry one piece of hand luggage and one small item on board. Hand luggage must not exceed 56x45x25cm and the small item must be no bigger than 40x30x15cm.
