Cabin Baggage Size Guide

Cabin Baggage Size Guide – Hand-Luggage Requirements – Which Wedding Dress Travel Box

Our Cabin Baggage Size Guide will help you decide which wedding dress travel case is most suitable for you.  We have summarized most airlines cabin baggage policies. Please bear in mind that these policies can change at any time and this page should only be used as a guide. For the most up to date information and specific cabin baggage requirements please contact your airline directly, both for travel to and from the UK plus any onward travel. Remember that your Wedding Dress Travel Box will be your one piece of cabin baggage although some (but not all) airlines do also allow a small handbag – it is very important that you check this before your departure.  During busy times, many airlines operate a ‘first come, first served’ system with cabin baggage and can ask passengers checking in late to put their cabin baggage in the hold – please try and check in early with your Travel Box.

EasyJet – 56 x 45 x 25cm is only guaranteed onboard with EasyJet Plus Speedy Boarding (but please see our note above regarding flying during busy times)  The airline states that 56 x 45 x 25cm is not guaranteed onboard during busy times but 50 x 40 x 20cm is.

Ryanair – From January 15th 2018, only the smaller bag – 35 x 20 x 20cm – will be permitted onboard free of charge.  If you wish to take the larger – 55 x 40 x 20cm – item, you must pre-book priority boarding at a cost of £5, or it will be tagged and taken to the hold at the departure gate.  We recommend the Jetset hand made box rather than the Large for this airline.

*Eastern – On our Jetstream aircraft and due to restricted storage space only small pieces of cabin baggage which can be stowed under a single seat in front may be taken on board. All other pieces are placed in the aircraft hold upon boarding and returned to you outside the aircraft immediately upon disembarkation.

** Jet2 – the airline are now making a charge of £2.59 each way to guarantee hand luggage can be taken onboard.

#Thomas Cook – If you have booked a Thomas Cook Wedding Package (booked directly with Thomas Cook, please check if in doubt) and are flying with Thomas Cook Airlines any additional items required by the Bride and Groom can be taken as hand baggage. The hand baggage allowance provided is 11kgs per person for the wedding couple only. This baggage must be split over two bags, one as 6kgs and the other as 5kgs. All hand baggage needs to be within the size restrictions of 55cm x 40cm x 20cm.
