*Consult details of allowed content.

Passengers are allowed to carry certain light and small objects as carry-on luggage (e.g., handbag, camera, laptop, etc) as long as they do not exceed 6 kg and do not measure more than 45 x 25 x 35 cm. If the carry-on luggage does not meet any of these conditions, it will be checked-in for stowing in the hold. You are informed that, for safety reasons, once you are on board the aircraft the carry-on luggage must be placed under the seat or in the overhead bin; if this is not possible, it must be stowed in the hold.

IMPORTANT: In International flights, the hand baggage must always be identified as such at the check-in desks with the relevant labels. The passenger who presents himself for boarding with unidentified baggage and exceeds the measurements established will have to be checked-in and the corresponding excess baggage paid.


For security reasons, everyday objects that may be used as an offensive or defensive weapon (scissors, metal files, nail cutters, letter openers, paper cutters, aerosols, walking sticks, etc) or items that can present a risk must be checked in as luggage. See prohibited items here.

Some devices as hoverboards, air wheels and solo wheels are now banned in both carry-on hand baggage and checked hold luggage. These devices are not considered as mobility support devices but as PED (Portable Electronic Devices).

The carrying of drones is conditional to compliance with the general imitations for carrying batteries and the filling in of a specific liability waiver at check-in, so that it is necessary to arrive at least one hour before the flight’s departure for inter-island flights and an hour and a half for other flights.

In the hand baggage allowance, each passenger can carry the following personal effects:

  • • A Lady’s handbag, wallet or purse which are normal and suitable for travelling on condition that these are not used to transport articles or objects which can be considered to be baggage subjects to weight.
  • • Reading for the flight.
  • • An overcoat, a coat or a travel rug.
  • • An umbrella and/or a stick.
  • • A small camera and/or binoculars.
  • • A computer/ a portable electronic device.
  • • A basket/cradle for transporting babies.
  • • Baby food to be consumed on the flight.
  • • An airport shopping bag.

The European Union (EU) has adopted security measures that restrict the amount of liquids or substances of similar consistencies that passengers can carry with them through airport security controls in community airports. These measures apply to all passengers leaving airports in the EU regardless of the destination.

However, the measures do not limit the acquisition by passengers of these liquids or substances in the shops beyond the control point where you show your boarding pass, in the duty free shops of authorised airports in non-community countries or on-board aircraft operated by an EU airline.

Only small amounts of liquids may be taken in your carry-on luggage. These liquids must be in small containers with a maximum individual capacity of 100 ml in a self-closing transparent plastic bag with a maximum capacity of 1 litre (approximately 20 x 20 cm) to facilitate the inspection of these products in the security controls.

Passengers must provide themselves with these bags before starting the journey.

For the purposes of the new measures, the following are considered liquids:

- Creams, lotions and oils including toothpaste.

- Perfumes

- Gel such as, for example, shower gel or shampoo.

- Contents of pressurised containers including shaving cream, other foams and deodorants.

- Aerosols

- Any other substance of similar consistency.


Medicines for use during the flight (including the outbound flight, the stay and the return flight) can be included in carry-on luggage by showing them separately in the security controls but not within the transparent bag.

Food (babies)

Baby food for use during the journey (including the outbound flight, the stay and the return flight) can be included in carry-on luggage by showing it separately in the security controls but not within the transparent bag.
