During the online booking process checked baggage can be bought at a reduced price compared to airport prices. Essentials fare passengers can choose to buy 15kg, 20kg, 23kg, or 40kg (distributed in 2 bags) if they wish to check a bag.
“Get more” fare passengers have 20kg of checked baggage included in the price of their ticket and may upgrade the amount of hold weight at an extra charge.
“All in” plus fare passengers can bring up to 40kg of hold luggage distributed in 2 bags.
There are no size restrictions, but overweight baggage will incur a fee of £15/€20 per excess kilo.
