Hand luggage

See all the details about permitted hand luggage and its characteristics in this section.

Passengers travelling with carry-on luggage only will save time in check-in lines and counters by checking in online.

Characteristics

If the measurements or weight of your luggage exceed the limits allowed, your suitcase will be rejected or carried in the hold for a possible surcharge. This measure is intended to improve both your personal safety and that of other passengers, as well as your comfort during the flight, given that the capacity of the overhead lockers is limited.

Because of these limitations, even if your luggage complies with the limits on size and weight, our staff may consider it necessary to store it in the hold at no extra cost to the passenger.

Transporting ashes or incinerated human remains is allowed. The urn must fit under the seat or in the luggage compartment.

Some planes in our fleet used for short and medium haul flights (e.g., ATR and Embraer E145) are smaller, and it may not be possible for you to keep your hand luggage in the cabin. If this should be the case, your hand luggage will travel in the hold and will be returned to you when you disembark at your destination.

Questions about carry-on baggage

It is not possible to purchase additional hand luggage.

However, you can consider the option of purchasing additional checked bags on our website or by contacting us through our Customer Service, Facebook or Twitter

In addition to hand luggage, two ensaimadas (packaged together) can be taken per passenger.

Certain items, such as walking sticks and beach umbrellas, can be transported in reasonable quantities on certain flights at no additional cost. These items must not exceed 120 cm in length. 

  • Each passenger can carry their medication in the cabin, provided that they comply with the applicable operational security rules, airport security and dangerous goods regulations.
  • Syringes and any other injection instruments are not on the list of prohibited items in the cabin. They will therefore be accepted in the cabin and in the hold. However, in order to be able to insert hypodermic needles in the cabin, a medical certificate must be presented at the time of check-in.

A foldable umbrella or camera can be taken as an accessory in addition to your hand luggage.

In addition to your hand luggage, you can take one of the following items on your flight:

  • a handbag,
  • a laptop,
  • a tablet.

This additional item must fit under the seat in front of you and not exceed the following dimensions:  20 cm (high) x 35 cm (wide) x 30 cm (long).

Air Europa allows passengers to take food to eat during the flight in accordance with the fluid restriction safety regulations.

It should be noted that the destination country may prohibit the introduction of certain types of food into its territory. We recommend contacting the competent authorities of the country to find out the limitations related to the transportation of perishable food. Any type of food that is carried in checked baggage must be properly packed to prevent accidents (they will travel under the passenger's responsibility).

There are strict procedures for the import of certain animal products (meat, milk and products based on them) in the European Union and other countries, as they can carry pathogens responsible for contagious diseases.

We strongly recommend that you contact customs or the competent authorities before travelling to ensure that this food is allowed to be introduced.
