Personal item and Carry on

Only personal items which are small like handbags, laptop bags, any backpacks are considered as free baggage that is included in the base fare. 45 x 35 x 20 cm is the dimension that is allowed for carry-on baggage.

Checked baggage

There is a fee for taking checked luggage.  There are also many ways to minimize the payable amount. Firstly, the maximum permissible dimension is 62 inches or 158cm and the weight must be up to 40 pounds (18 Kg).  If this limit is exceeded, the fee is to be given for oversized baggage. 

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 members of the club. 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 baggage.
