For most international flights, each passenger is allowed TWO free checked bags and ONE carry-on bag plus ONE personal item. While information provided here is basic, because requirements vary by airline, it is recommended you reach out to your airline carrier's web site for accurate & up-to-date details. See details below.
– Checked luggage must have the passenger’s name on the outside of the bag. We also recommend that you place your name and address inside your baggage.
– Close but don’t lock your bag and remove or secure hooks or straps. Note: There are TSA approved locks that you can purchase at travel and luggage shops.
– Two pieces of checked baggage per person are permitted free of charge for international flights, provided they meet the following size and weight limitations:
– Each bag may not exceed 62 linear inches and 50 pounds.
– Linear inches are determined by adding the outside length plus width plus height. Almost every standard piece of Luggage fits these specifications. Please do not be overly concerned if your luggage is oversized by one inch or so.
* Airlines are usually relaxed when it comes to the dimensions of checked luggage, however, they are more strict on the weight. Keep the weight under 50 pounds. An excess luggage fee or handling charge will be collected for each piece of baggage over the designated “2 pieces free” baggage allowance for international flights and for each piece of oversize or overweight baggage.
** Remember that if you take two bags, you will be required to carry them both around the airports!
– Size dimensions of carry-on baggage allowed in the cabin of the aircraft vary by airline. Contact your airline to ensure what can fit in the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you. - TSA Frequently Asked Questions On Carry Bag Restrictions
