Hand Baggage

Norwegian Air provides different hand baggage allowances for various ticket types such as Lowfare, Lowfare+, Flex, and Premium. Following are the hand baggage allowances for the different ticket classes:

  • Low-fare: If you are a Low fare ticket holder, you are allowed to bring onboard one hand baggage that can be stored under the seat in front. It should be no more than 10kg in weight and within the dimensions of 30cm X 20cm X 38cm.
  • Low-fare+: Lowfare+ ticket holders are allowed to bring onboard one under seat hand baggage and one additional hand luggage, which is to be stored in the overhead compartment. The combined weight of your hand baggage should be within 10kgs.
  • Flex and Premium Flex: The Flex and PremiumFlex passengers are allowed to carry one under the seat and one overhead hand luggage, with the combined weight of both being within 15kgs.

In addition to these allowances, all passengers are allowed to carry one airport shopping bad. Hand baggage should always be used to carry handy critical items such as documents and medicines, so they are easily accessible.

Additional charges: Lowfare passengers can book an additional overhead hand baggage slot in Norwegian Air flights for minimal cost. Prices range from 5-9 EUR.

In the event of your hand baggage exceeds the allowed weight, you are liable to be charged at a ‘per leg’ basis, and the excess hand baggage is to be transferred to the luggage hold.

Checked Baggage

Checked baggage is the baggage that is stored in the cargo hold of the plane after you check-in. Like hand baggage, checked baggage also has different allowances based on the class of ticket that you have purchased. The basic checked luggage allowances for various classes are as follows:

  • Low-fare: No extra checked baggage is included with the base fare. If you want to carry checked luggage for your trip, you will have to purchase a slot for your baggage before checking in.
  • Lowfare+: A Lowfare+ ticket allows you to check-in 1 baggage up to 23kgs in weight.
  • Flex, Premium, Premium Flex: All three classes of the premium tier tickets will enable travelers to check-in 2 pieces of luggage, with a combined weight of 46kgs.
  • In long-distance Haul flights, these same baggage allowances are applicable.

There are a specific size and weight limitations for check-in luggage as well. Each bag cannot be more massive than 32kgs, or lighter than 2kgs. In addition to this, the total weight of the check-in luggage should not exceed 64kgs. When it comes to dimensions, check-in luggage has to be within the dimensions of 250 x 79 x 112 Cm. For round or spherical baggage, the maximum allowed circumference is 300cm.

Charges for extra check-in baggage: excess charges become available when the total number of check-in luggage exceeds the 2 item baggage limit, or the total weight allowance limit. The extra charges levied are 12 EUR per extra kilo, per leg.

Booking extra luggage space: one can save up to 50% by booking extra baggage space before check-in, in case they have to carry excess baggage. Adding extra baggage space to your existing allocation can be done up to 4 hours before departure. It allows you to carry your extra baggage at heavily discounted prices.
