Cabin Baggage Policy

Each airline has its own rules on baggage weight and dimensions. Passengers are therefore advised to check with their airline. However, there are a number of guidelines to follow regardless of the airline you travel with.

Prepare your hand luggage in advance

The safety and comfort of our guests is paramount. To ensure a hassle-free experience, follow these tips on limited cabin items.

1. Safety Rules

Make sure you meet the safety standards in force. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) has developed the application "airbag" which allows you to know the prohibited or regulated items in the luggage:

Prohibited items in the cabin are:

  • firearms or imitations
  • bladed weapons
  • blunt objects
  • hazardous substances or materials

Consult the detailed list of prohibited items and stay informed on the latest regulations.

There are also restrictions on liquids

Only are accepted in the cabin:

liquids of less than 100ml placed in a transparent plastic bag in the format 20cm x 20cm closed. Download the document of the DGAC (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) on these security measures.
liquids with a volume exceeding 100ml meeting a medical or dietary need used during the trip (on presentation of proof).
REMINDER: the bottles of liquid cannot exceed 100 ml in carry-on baggage (be careful, it is the container that counts, not the amount of liquid present) and must be stored in a transparent bag with a maximum capacity of one liter. You will need to present separately the liquids you wish to take in the cabin.
