A passenger is allowed one carry-on bag and one small bag inside the flight. The carry-on bag can be kept beneath the seat, which is in front, or in the overhead bin. The small bags must be kept under the seat in front of you. The airline is not responsible for the carry-on baggage. All the passengers must take responsibility for their baggage. The following are the policies for carry-on baggage:

  • You can keep a bag, which includes wheels and handles, in the overhead bin. The bag's dimensions must not be more than 22 inches x 14 inches x 9 inches.
  • The dimensions of the small bag which is to be kept under the seat must be 17 inches x 13 inches x 8 inches.
  • The baggage should not weigh more than 7 kg.
