Baggage

It is important to remember baggage information can change frequently. Use this information as your starting point, but always check with your airline for any changes as you book your flights.

Each traveler can bring on board one carry-on bag plus one personal item free of charge. To help make the boarding process as smooth as possible for everyone, please make sure that these items are within the size limits described below, so they’ll fit into the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you

Personal Item

Backpack, purse, computer bag or other bag you want to use to carry your personal belongings need to be 9″ x 10″ x 17″ to properly and safely fit on the plane.

Carry-on Bag

Requirements:

  • Each customer is allowed 1 carry-on bag
  • Size 24” x 17” x 10”
  • 25 pounds or less

Screening of Carry-on Bags

  • Liquids and gels must be in containers of 3.4 ounces or less. Place your containers in a single, one-quart zip-top plastic bag
  • Remove the plastic bag from your carry-on bag and put it in a screening bin
  • Place metal objects, such as coins and keys, in your carry-on bag
  • Put laptop computers and other electronic devices in a screening bin
