Our cabin baggage policy

In November 2015, we started to notify customers of a change to our cabin baggage policy commencing April 2016. This would assist us to make best use of the available space on board for stowing cabin baggage.

Prior to April 2016, you were permitted to bring a single cabin bag measuring no more than 55 x 40 x 23cm, however from April 2016 the size of your main cabin bag changed to 55 x 35 x 20cm (including wheels and handles).

To compensate for this amended size, your overall allowance was increased to include an additional second bag in the form of a smaller personal item that could be safely stowed, under the seat in-front of you.

For safety reasons, all cabin baggage must comply with our cabin baggage sizing policy in order to be stowed safely and securely.

Getting you to your destination safely and on time is our priority, which is why we are now enforcing our cabin baggage policy.

If your cabin baggage is too big, you will not be able to take it into the aircraft cabin. Your bag will be transferred to the aircraft hold and a charge will be applied.

We’ve developed our cabin baggage policy with you in mind, giving you:

* More space onboard

* Closer proximity and better access to your hand baggage during your flight

* Greater likelihood of having your hand luggage with you in the cabin

* A speedier boarding process and on-time departures.

We appreciate your cooperation and hope that you understand that by complying with our cabin baggage policy you are helping us to ensure the safety, comfort and convenience of all passengers onboard, whilst reducing the risk of a potential delay to your flight.

UK Department for Transport Advice for Carrying Electronic Devices

The UK Department for Transport has extended its advice regarding the carriage of electronic devices on board aircraft to now include ‘other unspecified routes into and out of the UK’. This follows the changes widely reported last week concerning the carriage of electronic devices by passengers flying to the United States only.

Flybe passengers are therefore advised to make sure that any electronic devices in their hand luggage are fully charged before they travel so that they are able to be powered up otherwise there is the possibility they will not be allowed to take the device onto the aircraft.

Please note that, as with other items of hand luggage confiscated by airport authorities for safety and security reasons, neither airports nor airlines have the facility to store such items.

Cabin Bag Questions

Will the size of my bag be checked?

Baggage sizers are provided at the check-in to ensure that your cabin bag is within your permitted allowance. Should your cabin bag exceed these dimensions, it will be required to be placed in the hold and standard airport hold baggage charges will apply. Please note: your cabin baggage may be subject to random compliance checks. A £50 charge will be levied for any oversized bag checked in at the departure gate. Should your cabin bag exceed the permitted weight allowance, it will be placed in the hold and standard airport hold luggage charges will apply. Where allowances are exceeded, excess baggage charges may apply, full details of which can be found here. Any cabin bag items containing sharp items must be checked into the aircraft hold. Please ensure to check your cabin bag prior to travel to ensure no charge is levied.

What if I’m carrying any sharp items?

Any cabin bag items containing sharp items must be checked into the aircraft hold. Please ensure to check your cabin bag prior to travel to ensure no charge is levied.
