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 few personal items may also be taken in the cabin.

What is Air Europa’s policy on checked baggage?

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. Minors (children and infants) 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.
