What's my baggage allowance?

Baggage Information

Certain items are not permitted for carriage in checked or unchecked baggage. These are listed below under the details of "Dangerous Articles in Baggage".

Do not accept any item given to you by a third party.
Checked Baggage:
From 1st November 2012, the following hold baggage allowance applies


CitySaver allows you to take one cabin baggage with you but does not include any check-in luggage. If you wish to check-in one luggage (1 x 23kg allowance), you can purchase it (1 x 23kg allowance) during the online check in process for 15EUR, or at the airport for 30EUR. Alternatively you can upgrade to CityValue for only 20 EUR/GBP and benefit not only from the free check-in bag but also the ticket change, the seat choice and earn some miles!

CityValue and CityFlex passengers may check in 1 piece of baggage weighing up to 23kg free of charge.

CityPlus passengers may check in 2 pieces of baggage, each weighing up to 23kg.

An additional charge of EUR 55 may be charged when exceeding the 23kg allowance.

Note:  A weight limit of 32kg applies on any individual item of checked baggage

Dimensions, number of bags and weight
All baggage you do not check in but take with you in the the cabin is called hand baggage. You can stow this baggage in the overhead baggage compartment or under the seat. Flights operated by CityJet aircraft have limited storage space in the cabin, and so we may ask you to put your hand baggage in the hold. We advise you to minimise your hand baggage as much as possible. CityJet Charter flights

CityJet requires that all checked baggage is clearly identifiable with your name, address, destination and contact numbers or alternatively your flight confirmation number. Labels for this purpose are available at the CityJet check-in counters at the airport. Remember to remove labels from previous flights. Failure to comply with these requirements could result in the delayed delivery of your baggage.

When checking in, a destination label is affixed to each baggage item. Receipts for these labels are then given to you. Make sure that the label indicates the correct destination, the correct flight number, and that your baggage is checked in all the way to your final destination if you have connecting flights. Keep your baggage label receipts safe. This measure means any lost baggage items can be found more easily.

CityJet does not accept responsibility for any damage caused to or as a result of damage caused to the following items:
- Items that protrude from luggage such as wheels, luggage feet and handles
- Items of a fragile (musical and sporting equipment) or perishable nature
- Over packed bags
- Loss of external locks, zips, pull straps or security straps
- Manufacturer's defects
- Baggage accepted after the check-in closure time.
- Baggage containing valuable items.
- Designer Baggage
- Umbrellas.

Any minor damage to such items which does not affect the functionality of the item will not be compensated for. The passenger will be deemed to have accepted the risk that such minor damage can and may occur. These items are only carried on a limited release basis; (ie. Entirely "at your own risk" for loss, damage or delay). Passengers should ensure that they have suitable private insurance cover for their journey.

For sporting equipment including golf bags see 2.6 below.

Try to use hard-shell baggage, and always lock it.

Fragile Items:
Passengers must ensure that all fragile items (including but not limited to Sports Equipment, Musical Instruments, Computers / Laptops, Art, Infant Equipment, paintings,  bottles, china, etc are packaged adequately for Air Travel.
Should an item be deemed to be unsuitably packaged CityJet can refuse to accept it.

Upon Arrival
All baggage items look alike! Take the time to check that you are reclaiming your own baggage items by:
- checking your name
- comparing the label number affixed to your baggage with the number on the receipt you were given at check-in.
Upon arrival, remove the previous destination address labels so as to avoid any confusion the next time you travel.
Infant Equipment:
Infant Equipment including but not limited to prams, buggies, cots, and car seats are not designed for carriage by air. It is possible to carry such items to the aircraft and such items will be loaded as checked baggage at that time. CityJet carries such items on a 'Limited Release' (i.e. entirely 'at your own risk' for loss, damage, or delay) basis. Passengers should therefore ensure that they have suitable private insurance cover for their journey.
