Standardised luggage

Preparing to travel by air? To avoid any nasty surprises on D-Day, Delsey reminds you of what matters most with regard to luggage regulations.

To avoid any unpleasant incidents, first of all check on your airline's specific luggage conditions, as shown on the ticket or their website. These could change according to destination, travel class or ticket type.

Restrictions concerning cabin luggage

• You can carry one item of luggage and/or accessory (handbag, camera, laptop, etc.) onto the aircraft free of charge.

• According to the IATA (International Air Transport Association), the maximum standard dimensions for cabin luggage (wheels, handles and pockets included) are 56 x 45 x 25 cm (see our table for more details).

• The total weight is usually between 10 and 12 kg.

• Scrupulously respect the rules concerning liquid products (less than 100 mL each and all carried together in a single transparent plastic bag measuring 20 x 20 cm) and the materials or dangerous objects which are forbidden on board.

Checked luggage and the principal of allowances

• The luggage you can check for free is limited to a certain weight, and governed by two currently applied systems. Weight allowance enables you to carry an unlimited number of articles, with only the total weight being taken into account: from 20 to 30 kg generally in economy class. The number allowance enables you to check from 1 to 3 items of luggage depending on class, with each one weighing less than 23 kg and total measurements not exceeding 158 cm (IATA standards).

• Consult your airline for excess luggage rates and the transport of special volumes (musical instruments, wheelchairs, surfboards, etc.).

• Needless to say, you must strictly comply with the list of goods that are forbidden or subject to restrictions in checked luggage.

With luggage in strict compliance with all required conditions, check-in goes perfectly smoothly and the sky is yours. Enjoy your flight!
