Carry-on Baggage 

We have established maximum restrictions for cabin baggage that may be taken on board to minimize movements and contacts in the cabin and with the safety of our passengers as our top priority. Therefore, you should only bring what is necessary for your cabin baggage, and only in amounts you can manage.

Your carry-on luggage might need to be free of charge transport in the aircraft's hold if the cabin volume restriction is reached. In this situation, you must have all the necessary paperwork, including your travel documents.

All carry-on baggage must be shown during check-in for proper labeling. (information/baggage/carry-on-baggage)
