Who is not covered by the new rules?


Passengers who purchased tickets for flights before February 13, 2024 will be able to carry hand luggage on any flights under the old rules. That is, they will be allowed to take one item up to 55x40x20 cm in size without weight restrictions.


At the same time, those passengers who booked tickets from February 14, 2024 will have the new rules described above.


What are the penalties for exceeding the hand luggage allowance?


According to the updated rules, passengers who take more items in their hand luggage, or if the weight and dimensions of their hand luggage exceed the specified limits, will be subject to fines.

For each item that does not meet the fare standards, the fine will be 50 euros.
