Business Travel Agents Update: Changed easyJet cabin bag allowance policy
24th February 2015
Flight-Line business travel agents have been informed that with effect from Thursday, 19th March 2015 the low-cost airline easyJet will introduce changes to its cabin bag policy. With the policy changes the airline aims to provide eligible travellers flying with easyJet to benefit from an improved travel experience.
Currently the easyJet cabin bag allowance enables leisure and business travellers to bring on board:
- One piece of cabin baggage with a maximum size of 50 x 40 x 20cm including handles and wheels on board with the guarantee to travel with you, not to be put into the hold.
- One piece of carry-on baggage within easyJet’s maximum allowed size of 56 x 45 x 25cm including handles and wheels. However, depending on how busy flights are, carry-on baggage may be required to go into the hold, at no extra cost.
- In addition, leisure and business travellers flying on Easyjet flights can carry a maximum of 1000ml, i.e. 10 containers with a maximum volume of 100ml of liquid per container. Liquids must fit into a transparent, re-sealable 1 litre plastic bag with a measuring not more than 20 x 20cm. The plastic bag must be removed from the cabin baggage and shown separately at the airport security check-in line.
The changed EasyJet cabin bag allowance will enable easyJet plus cardholders and travellers with flexifare or upfront/ extra legroom to bring:
- 1 x cabin bag (56x45x25cm max size incl. handles & wheels) to be placed in the overhead locker
- 1 x small under seat bag such as a handbag or a small laptop bag
What the policy change means for business travellers?
Business travellers who have easyJet plus or travel on Flexifare will be able to take a separate laptop bag with their carry-on baggage when flying with Easyjet airlines. Other customers are still able to carry on one maximum sized cabin bag (56x45x25cm) which they can place in the overhead lockers. As space in overhead lockers is limited, the airline encourages clients to take advantage of the easyJet plus speedy boarding service to be able to board early allowing them to board first at the gate making it easy for them to secure their space in the overhead lockers for their cabin bag. However, leisure and business travellers sitting in upfront or extra leg room seats are not able to put the small bag under the seat, and are required to use the space in the overhead lockers for both carry-on bags.
EasyJet’s policy on duty free bags and shopping remains unchanged. All travellers may bring one bag of duty free goods.
