New Monarch Airlines Carry-On Allowance - Increased to 10kg from 5kg previously

(a) One piece of hand baggage no bigger than the new slightly reduced size of 56 x 40 x 25cm (there’ll be a size gauge at the airport to check this) and no heavier than 10 kilos, plus a small duty free bag from the departure airport. [AMZ asins='B00LB7REFK,B082K8ZNQ1,B07ZWLQF9T,B00NW62PCA']


(b) Two separate pieces of hand baggage, as long as the combined size is no bigger than 56 x 40 x 25cm and the combined weight no heavier than 10 kilos, plus a small duty free bag from the departure airport.

This means there’s no need to choose between your bag and your laptop. And you won’t have to cram everything into one bag at the departure gate. All we ask is that you put small items under the seat in front of you, to leave more space in the overhead lockers for larger bags.

Monarch Airlines Checked Baggage Fees 2016 - Checked Bag Weight & Size Limits

You are allowed 20kg of hold baggage upon payment of the hold baggage fee. You may share your weight allowance over a maximum of 5 pieces of luggage (upon payment of each bag fee) but the combined total weight of these pieces must not exceed 20kg per person.

Hold Baggage fees range from £15.00 (€21,00) to £40.00 (€56) when purchased online, and are higher when paid for at the airport.

Any hold baggage which exceeds 20kg will be charged at the current excess baggage fees per kilogram.

The maximum weight of any piece of hold baggage must not exceed 32kg. Any piece of baggage over this weight will not be accepted for carriage. This restriction has been put in place by airport authorities to help reduce manual handling injuries amongst airport staff.

Combining hold baggage allowance

If you are travelling with a companion you can pool your baggage allowance with a partner/travelling companion, provided both of you have paid the relevant hold baggage fees. For example:

1 Passenger purchases 1 bag - The passenger gets 20kg of hold baggage allowance
1 Passenger purchases 2 bags - The passenger gets 20kg of hold baggage allowance, split between two bags.
2 Passengers purchase 1 bag - The passengers get 20kg of hold baggage allowance between the two (20kg in total).
2 Passengers purchase 2 bags - EACH passenger gets 20kg of hold baggage allowance (40kg in total)
2 Passengers purchase 3 bags - EACH passenger gets 20kg of hold baggage allowance (40kg in total), split between three bags.

Hold baggage fees are non-refundable even if the hold baggage allowance you pay for is not used.
