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 17″ x 10″ x 9″ to properly and safely fit on the plane.

Carry-on Bag


  • Each customer is allowed 1 carry-on bag
  • Size 22” x 14” x 9”

Passengers are advised to carry-on medicines, keys, passport, and travel documents

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
  • Remove shoes, jackets and belts and put them in screening bins

Do not carry ammunition in your checked or carry-on luggage. While this may sound obvious, it’s amazing how many shotgun shells and bullets are confiscated by airport security everyday.

Checked Bags


  • 50 pounds or less
  • Length + width + height= under 62″

Screening of Checked Bags

  • Avoid packing fragile items in checked bags
  • Place your name, address and telephone number on the outside and inside of your baggage
  • Remove straps and other protruding objects
  • Lock your checked baggage with an approved lock

Those with checked bags should arrive 60 minutes before take-off.

Transferring Bags to Connecting Airlines
