Air Europa Baggage and Carry-on

What is Air Europa’s policy on hand baggage?

Each passenger is allowed to carry on board hand baggage, limited by the number of pieces, weight and size. Additionally, free of charge, a personal item may also be taken in the cabin.

What is Air Europa’s policy on checked baggage?

Except for those traveling on a Lite fare, each adult passenger has a free checked baggage allowance on every Air Europa flight. The baggage allowance is set by the Piece System for all flights and may vary depending on route and travel class. Children are entitled to the same allowance as adults.

In order to comply with current Health and Safety regulations for baggage handlers, Air Europa will only accept baggage up to a maximum weight of 32 kg (70 lbs) per piece. If any piece exceeds this weight, passengers will have to repack their baggage, making use, if necessary, of additional suitcases or travel bags. If the resulting baggage exceeds the free allowance, the relevant excess baggage charges will be applied.

Excess Baggage

Excess baggage means any piece of baggage over the number of pieces included in the baggage allowance. If you are traveling with excess baggage, you should arrive at the check-in desk at least 15 minutes before the check-in deadline. The extra charges for excess baggage can be paid at the airport, but also in advance, up to 2 days before the flight. You can purchase extra baggage, with a discount, online or through Air Europa Call Center. The purchase of additional luggage in advance is not allowed for flights to Quito and to/from Bolivia.

Overweight baggage up to 32 kg per piece is permitted after payment of the relevant charges. Overweight baggage charges can be paid only at the check-in desk. The overweight baggage charge does not apply to Business, Air Europa SUMA Silver, Gold or Platinum, and Elite or Elite Plus passengers whenever the total baggage weight does not exceed their allowance. If they exceed their allowance, the overweight charge must be paid.
