In a hurry? Act fast and purchase Priority & 2 Cabin Bags!

Priority & 2 Cabin Bags gives customers the benefit of boarding the plane via the Priority Queue and carrying their small personal bag (40x20x25cm) and 10kg wheelie bag (55x40x20cm) with them on board. This will mean you won't need to wait for your bag at the terminal at the destination. If Priority is sold out, you can purchase our 10kg Check-in Bag.

 Musical Equipment

Are you performing abroad and want to bring your own musical instrument?
With us, you have the peace of mind to check in certain musical items in additional to your personal checked baggage allowance up to a limit of 20kg per item.
Smaller musical items such as a guitar, violin or viola which exceed our cabin baggage dimensions may be carried in the cabin if a seat for it has been reserved and the appropriate fare paid. There is no checked or cabin baggage allowance associated with the purchase of an extra seat.

Over-sized Cabin Bags

Over-sized cabin baggage will be refused at the boarding gate, or where available, placed in the hold of the aircraft for a fee of €/£ 69.99 (fee subject to VAT on domestic flights at applicable government rates).
If you are unsure whether your bag is the correct size, check it at the Bag Drop desk before going through security.
