Checked-in luggage

We believe that when you travel, you shouldn't have to leave anything important at home. So, you can book a maximum of four pieces of luggage into the cargo hold. Your luggage must:

  • have 23 or 32 kg/piece, depending on what you have booked
  • be 100 cm x 80 cm x 30 cm
  • not include any dangerous goods, unless permitted for carriage

Other important things to know about luggage

Valuable objects or electronic devices (camera, laptop, tablet etc) should be transported in the cabin bag.

If your luggage doesn't comply

Please note that, if you arrive at the gate with a bag that exceeds the required weight and size allowance, it will have to be placed in the hold and will be subject to a charge for urgent luggage-handling per luggage per passenger per flight. Also, please note that locker space can be limited on busy and full flights, so we may have to transport your bag in the cargo hold. If that happens, we’ll take care of it for you without any further luggage charges.

Blue Air is committed to constantly improving our product portfolio, aiming to better align its offering to the needs of the customers. We listened to your needs and feedback and we are simplifying our fares, making them easier and more affordable, whilst giving you the flexibility to build your personalized offer based on what you need for each specific trip you take.

Any booking reservations made before May 5 remain valid and you continue to benefit from the services originaly included in that respective fare at the time of booking, unless you voluntarily decide to change your flight date and/or upgrade to a differnet bundle fare.

If you are not the person who made the reservation, please contact the person who made the reservation for you to receive all the necessary details.

All booking reservations made on or after May 5 are subject to the new fare conditions and services included in your reservation will be the newly published ones.

We’ve made some changes to our cabin bag policy to help improve boarding and punctuality and give customers certainty of what they are allowed to bring on board.

All of our fares include a small cabin bag, which you can take for free into the cabin, providing it fits under the seat in front of you and it complies with the maximum size of 40x30x20cm (including any handles or wheels) and maximum weight of 10kg. That should be enough to fit all the essentials for your journey or for a short trip.

Should you need additional hand luggage such as a trolley, you can opt for BlueBIZ fare family or for purchasing our Priority Boarding service, additionally to the BlueBASIC or BluePLUS(

This service allows you not only to board the plane with priority over the rest of the passengers, but also to take with you on board a second luggage, with the maximum measures of 55x40x20cm and maximum weight of 10kg. This must fit in the overhead compartment).

All booking reservations made on or after May 5 are subject to the new fare conditions and services included in your reservation will be the newly published ones.

We are trying our best to ensure consistency and transparency throughout your experience with us. For that and for safety reasons, our staff has been trained and informed to conduct thorough checks to ensure all customers are complying with all mentioned regulations and rules. If you arrive at the gate with a bag that exceeds your allowance, it will have to be placed in the hold and will be subject to a charge.

An upgrade to a more permissive fare family or the purchasing of the priority boarding service, as well as other ancillary products that enhance your trip, can be selected at the time of booking, or at any time before you check-in via Manage my bookings on our website or by calling our Call Centre. Please note that the price of the ancillary may be higher if purchasing it later (post-booking or at the airport).

Please note that the upgrade to BlueBIZ is subject to inventory availability and this could not be always available for purchase after the initial booking.

We would like to make sure all customers of the booking are equally comfortable. For that reason, all self-service upgrades are welcome and available for all passengers of the same booking but not for one person in the reservation. If you must upgrade for one person in the reservation exclusively, please contact our Call Center.

If a customer purchased Blue Air priority boarding (or is entitled to priority boarding via the BlueBIZ fare family), both the free small cabin (max. size 40 x 30 x 20 cm) and the large cabin bag (max. 55 x 40 x 23 cm) can be brought into the cabin. Both bags will be guaranteed to travel with you in the cabin area unless it is not possible due to operational reasons.

The luggage will be placed in the hold free of charge and you can collect it at the baggage belt at the arrival airport.

If priority service is sold-out, we recommend that passengers either purchase BlueBIZ (as it includes Priority Boarding), add a checked-in bag to their booking, or pack smart and only bring a small cabin bag only (max. size 40 x 30 x 20 cm). All non-priority passengers are still entitled to bring on board one free small cabin bag of max. size 40 x 30 x 20 cm.

Blue Air provides all passengers the online check-in service free of charge. BlueBASIC customers can complete their online check-in process as soon as it becomes available, which is 24 hours prior to departure.

BluePLUS and BlueBIZ customers can check-in online for free too, this becoming available 30 days prior to flight departure.

Only BluePLUS and BlueBIZ customers can opt for free check-in at the airport. Should a BlueBASIC customer decide not to use the online check-in and report for check-in at the airport, the customer will be charged an additional fee.

You can choose upgrade to BluePLUS or BlueBIZ in order to have free check-in at the airport.

Our new policy implies that free check-in at the airport is available for BluePLUS and BlueBIZ customers, any other customer intending to check-in at the airport will be charged an additional fee.
