Carry-on luggage is a small or not very large suitcase, purse or backpack that the passenger has the right to carry with him or her into the airplane at no cost.

These bags can be stored in the luggage compartments, inside the airplane below the seat or above the upper luggage compartment seat.

Hand luggage functionality:

You might be wondering what the main function of a carry-on bag or what can not be carried in the carry-on bag, do not worry that we will clarify your doubts now!

The handbag is for you to carry with you those essentials that cannot be far away from you. So what can go in the handbag? Examples are documents, jewelry, cash, cards, belts, glasses, cell phones, electronics and so on.

It is precisely those luggage that you cannot check separately.

Guidelines and rules permitted in a carry-on baggage:


• 55 cm (height) x 35 cm (width) x 25cm (depth) is the accepted measurement on most airlines!


By definition of ANAC (National Civil Aviation Agency)

• 10 kg is the maximum baggage weight on low-cost scheduled airlines for both domestic and international flights.

• Note: If your baggage exceeds the set weight, a fee may be checked as checked baggage, so it is important to be fully compliant with carry-on baggage!


• 1 suitcase per person. Smaller bags, such as cosmetics, inside the bag are allowed!

• Airlines also release a backpack that fits into the compartment below the armchair.

• Note: Even people with babies cannot carry more than one carry-on bag, so if they really need to carry that bag, they will have to buy a seat and a ticket for the baby or child!

Now that you know what is and isn't allowed in your carry-on, let's pack up and check in on that amazing trip you and your family want to do so much?

Taking a vacation or traveling in a free time is great, isn't it? To make it even better take time to organize your bags, with everything that needs to be shipped and everything that should be with you is essential!

Bring everything you need to use during the flight, toiletries, or health items such as an asthma inhaler or medicine you need (see rules for loading specific drugs beforehand).

Carry permissible foods, fruits or yoghurt to quell that hunger, cookies and chocolate for your children while they wait to land. Bring an excellent book or listen to music while waiting for the time to pass.

Do not forget the documents, the glasses to avoid that headache. Or other valuable objects that you like to have around, especially if it's something of comfort for those who don't like to fly or travel for the first time.

Pack your bag according to airline regulations, get everything right, board and enjoy a good trip!
