Checked baggage

Spirit Airlines standard checked baggage policy details follow:

  1. Two bags standard, up to 5 bags maximum (restrictions exist on international travel – check Spirit's site for more information)
  2. Full dimensions: 62 inches or 157 centimeters (length + width + height)
  3. Maximum Weight: 40 pounds or 18 kilograms

Additional or Excess baggage

In addition, frequent travelers who book Spirit airline flights can join the fare club, which reduces the amount for carrying on baggage. For the non-members, the fee is more than the club members. It is better to pay for the baggage while booking on the website while paying, and the Great is the most expensive. But they actively discourage passengers from carrying extra luggage.
