In addition to the carry-on allowance, each passenger may carry the following items at no additional cost:

  • Diaper bag

Carry-on baggage must fit in the sizing device at check-in, as well as under the seat in front of you or in the overhead compartment onboard the aircraft.

Make sure that all liquids, aerosols and gels are in containers of 100 ml or less and placed inside a clear, plastic 1-litre resealable bag that you will be required to place in a bin at the security checkpoint.
