EasyJet Carry On 2023 - Cabin Bag Size & Weight Limit

EasyJet Carry-On Allowance for All Passengers in 2023
Be sure to note the NEW RULES regarding carry-on bags.

Only ONE SMALL cabin bag (45 x 36 x 20 cm, for example a handbag or laptop) is allowed per passenger. Dimensions include handles and wheels. This bag must go under the seat in front of you.

A 15 kg weight limit applies, which is generally not enforced, as it will be difficult to pack more than 15 kg into that sized luggage, only that you must be able to place it into the overhead compartment without assistance.

Be sure not to exceed the small cabin bag size, as otherwise you will be charged a fee of 39.99 GBP if larger than 45 x 36 x 20 cm. If your cabin bag is even larger than 56 x 45 x 25 cm, the fee will be 48 GBP. In both cases, the bag will be placed in the luggage hold.

Adding a Large Cabin Bag on EasyJet in 2023
If you would like to bring a Large Cabin Bag, up to 56 x 45 x 25 cm, on your easyJet flight, you have a couple of options.

A Large Cabin Bag is included for FLEXI Fares and for easyJet Plus cardholders. Please note that for 2023, EasyJet no longer includes a large cabin bag in selecting "Up Front" or "Extra Legroom" seats.

If none of these apply to you, you can purchase a Large Cabin Bag add-on to your ticket for a fee starting at 5.99 GBP up to about 35.99 GBP, which can be purchased online on the easyJet website or via the app.

If your large cabin bag exceeds the size limit of 56 x 45 x 25 cm, your bag will be gate-checked into the hold, and you will be charged a fee of 48 GBP for the privilege.

And, even though it's tempting, please don't try to sneak two items past the EasyJet gate crew: they'll have to put one of them into the aircraft hold and charge you for it. It will delay yours and everyone else's journey!

EasyJet Hands Free
EasyJet previously allowed the option to go "Hands Free", by dropping off your carry-on bag at the check-in desk - this option is no longer offered for 2023. Only if you have already purchased a "Hands Free" service or voucher will you still be able to use it.

EasyJet Checked Baggage Fees 2023 - Checked Bag Weight & Size Limits

IMPORTANT: Every item of standard checked ('hold') baggage will incur a fee.

Hold luggage is the baggage you check-in to be carried in the aircraft's hold. This usually includes larger items such as suitcases or rucksacks, but the term also applies to sports equipment and musical instruments.

Each individual item of hold luggage should not exceed total dimensions of 275cm (length + width + height), except for sporting and medical equipment.

You may pre-purchase a hold luggage allowance of either 15 kg or 23 kg suitcases, and increase that allowance up to 32 kg in in increments of 3 kg. The cost of luggage depends on the origin and destination of your flight. The applicable online fee for your specific flight will be displayed at the time of adding the luggage to your reservation (whether during or after booking your flight). Alternatively, you may pay for your luggage at the airport, it will be much more expensive (48 GBP per suitcase) than paying in advance.

15 Kg Hold Luggage (only available online) - from £6.99 - £35.49
23 Kg Hold Luggage (online) - from £9.49 - £42.49
23 Kg Hold Luggage (at airport) - £48 at bag drop desk
23 Kg Hold Luggage (at airport) - £48 at boarding gate
Additional weight (pre-booked) up to a maximum of 32 kg - £15 per 3kg
Additional weight (at airport) - £12 per Kg

No single piece of hold baggage can weigh more than 32 kg, due to health and safety restrictions.

Sharing Luggage Allowance with Family
If you are travelling in a group of two or more you may spread the weight of your luggage across the bags. For example, two passengers with a bag each may carry 20 kg of luggage each, but if you wish to put 18 kg in one bag and 22 kg in the other, then that's okay. You've just got to remember that you cannot exceed the 40 kg total weight allowance without paying additional charges.

Infants on EasyJet
Infants who share your seat do not have a baggage allowance so all their stuff will have to go into your bag!

EasyJet Overweight Baggage Fee 2023 - Extra Bag Fee - Oversize Baggage

Where checked-in hold baggage exceeds the amount that you purchased, you can either add extra weight to your allowance online or at the airport. Keep in mind, it is significantly cheaper to plan this ahead of time and pre-purchase your excess weight allowance, as you will be charged almost 3x the amount at the airport check-in desk.

Additional weight (pre-booked) - £15 per 3 Kg
Additional weight (at airport) - £12 per Kg

The maximum weight allowed is up to a maximum of 32 kg, so you can purchase a 23 Kg allowance and add 3 x 3 Kg of additional weight. If purchasing a 15 Kg allowance, the maximum you can add in weight is up to a total of 27 Kg.

No single piece of hold luggage can weigh more than 32 kg, due to health and safety restrictions.

Sporting equipment
SMALL SPORTS EQUIPMENT (limit of 20 kg weight allowance)
Online - £37
At Airport - £47

Golf clubs
Skis and boots
Diving equipment
Pole vaults up to 450 cm
Other small sports equipment - maximum weight 20 kg

LARGE SPORTS EQUIPMENT - (limit of 32 kg weight allowance)
Online - £45
At Airport - £55

Bicycle - maximum weight 32 kg
Canoe / Kayak - maximum weight 32 kg
Windsurfer - maximum weight 32 kg
Hang glider - maximum weight 32 kg
Surfboards - maximum weight 32 kg

If purchasing standard baggage and sports equipment, the exact distribution of weight between baggage items doesn't matter, subject to the maximum weights (32 kg per item) detailed above for health and safety reasons. For example: One passenger travelling buys a bag (23 kg) and an additional Large Sporting Equipment (32 kg) allowance. This gives an allowance of 2 items (which must include 1 sporting item), at a total weight of 55 kg. However, if the sporting item is 28 kg and the bag is 27 kg then that's fine!

One very important thing to remember: if you've said you'll be bringing sports equipment, you must do so. In the example where one hold bag and one piece of sports equipment has been purchased, one of the two items must be genuine sporting goods!

Please note that baggage fees will not be refunded once paid, even where you subsequently do not carry excess baggage, additional baggage, sporting equipment or musical instruments on your Flight.

Pushchairs, buggies and travel cots can be taken right up to the aircraft door or steps and they're free of charge to bring on your flight. One of our crew will then take them from you and store them safely for you. You'll be able to pick them up when you land from the baggage carousel.
You can also check-in any pushchair or buggy at the check-in desk as hold baggage.
