Flybe Hand Luggage Allowance

Each passenger flying with the Essentials or New Economy fare is allowed to bring 1 piece of cabin luggage with the maximum dimensions of 55 x 35 x 20cm and a maximum weight of 10kg. Plus fare passengers may bring aboard the standard piece of cabin luggage as well as a laptop at no extra fee.

Take note that if you’re flying with a Stobart Air operated service, the maximum dimensions are 49 x 37 x 22cm and a maximum weight of 7kg. While, if you’re flyings with a Loganair operated service, the maximum dimensions are 40 x 35 x 18cm and a maximum weight of 6kg.

There are bag gauges at Flybe check-in desks and at the boarding gate that specify the size restrictions. Any bags that exceed the baggage allowance, either by size or weight, will be checked at an extra fee of £50.

Flybe Checked Baggage Allowance

The checked baggage allowance depends on the fare of each passenger. Passengers traveling on the Essentials fare do not have a hold bag included in the price of their ticket. 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.

Flybe Student Baggage Deal

Students residing in Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man and Belfast City and traveling on routes to and from Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man and Belfast City can upgrade the amount of checked baggage from 20kg to 40kg for free by showing their student I.D. at the airport bag drop desk. Students traveling on the Essentials fare must buy 20kg of checked luggage online during the booking process and at the airport this amount will be upgraded to 40kg for free.

      1. I booked 4 tickets to miami with edreams and the company. After taking the money of course. Give me only one ticket. When i sent emails they just ignore them. When i call they tell me the customer care dep. Have to take care f this but they wouldnt give me any phone number. Or any way to contact them besides the email. Yes the email addres that never response my mails… Even one of the operators told me that they give me only one ticket and they wont change a thing…. I have pictures of the payment screen and the amount of passengers. And after seeing them they said that only customer service can help me but again .. They are not giving me any way to contact them…. Im looking for legal advise right now….

          1. Hi Carla C., excuse me, but can you tell me where I can find someone who can answer on my questions from your company? I have send yesterday questions on facebook and through your web page costumer service, still no answers and it is emerge. That is a reason because I delay with buying tickets because I need first answers from you company? I will repeat my questions in the segment below:
            1. I can not find an option for taking ticket with “checked baggage (23kg)”, I only get option for buying ticket “without checked luggage”, please let me know how to take that option? If it is possible extra I would like to know can I do it directly with Austria airlines or I through Edreams?
            2. Except “total price” and “Credit card fee”, is there any other expenses that will be charged?
            Sincerely

      2. @carlaodigeo i just booked a wrong flight from turkey. They are now closed. My reservation:1966089453 I have to cancel it. Please help me so i can book with correct destination again.
