Checked Baggage


Travelling on Partner Airlines

If your journey is partly or entirely with another airline your allowance may differ. See our partner airlines websites below for information:









Connecting Itineraries

For Aer Lingus journeys between North America and the UK or Continental Europe, the long-haul checked baggage allowance will apply for all flights within a single itinerary or reservation, unless there is a stopover of more than 14 days in Ireland. Then each flight within the itinerary will have the relevant shorthaul or longhaul baggage policy applied to that part of the journey. Relevant shorthaul or longhaul policies shall apply to itineraries booked as separate reservations.
If your booking was made on, you can book bags in advance. You will need to know your Booking Reference as well as the Departure Airport, Arrival Airport and the email address used to make your booking.

Note: If you did not book online you will need to contact our Reservations Department in order to book your bags in advance.

Baggage with other Airlines

Aer Lingus will through-check a passenger and his/her baggage as a courtesy onto any carrier with a baggage agreement in place, upon presentation of documentation of the itinerary showing Aer Lingus and partner carrier flights on the same ticket.
The baggage allowance for these itineraries will be subject to the allowances listed on your ticket. Please contact your local reservations office for further information if you are unsure of applicable baggage allowances.
