Baggage Policy

Aer Lingus has a baggage policy that outlines the allowed weight, size, and number of bags for each passenger. Here's a breakdown of the policy:

  1. Carry-On Baggage: Each passenger is allowed one carry-on bag and one personal item, such as a purse or laptop bag. The carry-on bag must not exceed 10kg in weight and a maximum dimension of 55cm x 40cm x 24cm. The personal item must fit under the seat in front of the passenger.

  2. Checked Baggage: The number of checked bags allowed depends on the fare class and destination. For economy class passengers, one checked bag weighing up to 23kg is allowed on flights within Europe, and two checked bags weighing up to 23kg each are allowed on flights to/from North America. Business class passengers are allowed two checked bags weighing up to 32kg each on all flights.

  3. Excess Baggage: Passengers may be charged for excess baggage if their checked baggage exceeds the weight or size limits. The fee for excess baggage varies depending on the destination and fare class.

  4. Special Baggage: Passengers can bring special items such as sports equipment or musical instruments, but additional fees may apply. Passengers should contact Aer Lingus in advance to make arrangements for special baggage.

Carry-on Baggage

They provide two options for transporting your 10 kg luggage while traveling.

If your reservation does not allow you to check a suitcase heavier than 10 kg, you must purchase a "Carry-on bag with priority boarding" for €5.99/£5.99 online. Alternatively, leave your luggage at the check-in counter or bag drop kiosk when check-in opens (available in Dublin, Shannon, and London) and pick it up at the baggage carousel when you arrive. This choice is cost-free.
