Travel Information

Checked Baggage

 

Travelling on flights within Europe

From December 2013, we have a new checked baggage policy for flights within Europe.

As baggage needs vary depending on your destination and duration of travel, we offer you even more choice and flexibility with four baggage options to choose from online. By adding your bag online, you will save at least 50% on the price of airport baggage charges, so enjoy greater savings by pre-booking your bags in advance.

 

Note: Within Europe if you booked bags before 12th December, please download baggage fees and info here (pdf).

Extra Large x 2 Bags

For those occasions when you wish to carry just the essentials, our small bag allows you to carry one bag weighing up to 15kg.

Aer Lingus passengers most popular option, allowing you to carry a bag weighing up to a maximum of 20kg.

When you require a bit more weight, this option allows you to carry one bag weighing up to 25kg.

Our 40kg option allows you to carry 2 bags with a combined total weight of 40kg. Perfect when going on a longer holiday. Remember no individual piece can weigh more than 32kg.

Need an extra bag?
You will have the flexibility to add a maximum of 3 pieces within your chosen weight allowance.
