Hand Luggage
General Guidelines

If your hand baggage does not conform to the size specified, you may be denied entry into the departure area or directed back to the check-in desks.

All hand baggage must fit either under the seat in front of you or in one of the overhead lockers. Hand baggage must not obstruct emergency exits or aisles.

Larger laptop bags and standard/bulkier briefcases are not considered a personal item and count towards your standard hand baggage allowance.

Hand Baggage for Infants

In addition to their standard baggage allowances, passengers travelling with infants are permitted to bring one collapsible pram or collapsible buggy up to the boarding gates where the items will be removed and loaded in the hold of the aircraft. At some airports this process is not allowed so please ask the check in agent if you may keep the stroller with you up to the gates.

Infants are entitled to 1 carry-on bag including bedding, napkins, feeding bottles and food. This baggage is free of charge provided that the total mass does not exceed 8kg.

Duty Free Items

Duty free purchases such as liquor, cigarettes and perfume are also permitted in reasonable quantities for all. Passengers with 1 or more connecting flights should consider the liquid restrictions that may be in place at airport security points.

Checked Luggage

As a guide we have provided our standard checked baggage allowances, although there are exceptions based upon certain routes and ticket class. We therefore advise you to also check our baggage allowance exceptions below and, above all, take note of the baggage allowance attached to your booking.

Mahogany Air assesses baggage by number of pieces rather than their weight, although weight restrictions do apply.
