British Airways, Ryanair and easyJet checked luggage allowances explained – The Sun

TRYING to go on holiday with hand baggage only can be difficult.

Instead, we've explained how much luggage you can check into each airline in the UK and how much it costs.

Some airlines will allow passengers to check in a suitcase into the hold without additional cost.

However, new basic fares mean even long haul airlines now offer cheaper flights, but with no checked-luggage included.

We reveal the amount of checked luggage passengers have to pay for on UK airlines including Ryanair, British Airways and easyJet – and how much they each cost.

British Airways

British Airways passengers can check in up to ten bags, weighing no more than 23kg (for economy and premium economy) and 32kg (for busines and first class), measuring no more than 90cm x 75cm x 43cm.

Prices start from £20 for the first bag (for hand baggage only tickets), and £60 for any additional bags, depending on the destination and departing airport.


The airline currently allows a 10kg bag to be checked in, with prices starting from £10.

It must not exceed 55cm x 40cm x 20cm.

A 20kg bag can also be checked in, with a maximum of three bags per person which must not exceed 81cm x 119cm x 119cm.

Bags cost £25 each way if added during booking, or £40 afterwards, including at the airport or over the phone.

Ryanair passengers can also pool their bags together if checking in together – for example, instead of having two 20kg suitcases, passengers can have one that is 15kg and one that is 25kg.
