SkyUp increases the weight allowance of hand luggage and updates the rules for its carriage for various fares

14 Jan 2021
23076

The innovations take effect from 20 January 2021 and will only apply to tickets purchased from that date.

How the general rules for the carriage of hand luggage will change

The maximum allowed weight of one piece of hand luggage, the carriage of which is included in the ticket price regardless of the selected fare and does not require additional surcharges, will be increased from 7 to 9 kg. At the same time, the dimensions of this bag/suitcase, as before, should not exceed 55x40x20 cm.

Additional items (laptop, men's/women's bag, outerwear, umbrella, book/magazine/folder for papers, Duty Free goods), which could be taken on board for free, will have to be placed inside the bag/suitcase with carry-on luggage under the new rules. Duty Free goods yet go as an exception, which can be additionally taken on board for free until 31 March 2021 inclusive. Starting from 1 April, for free transportation, they will also need to be packed into a bag/suitcase with hand luggage or a passenger will pay extra $25 for bringing a separate package on board.

For passengers traveling with children, the rules regarding additional children's items that can be taken on board free of charge remain unchanged.
