Maybe you are planning on doing some shopping, or just need to take a bit extra for your holiday, as such we give you the freedom to add as much, or as little hold baggage to your booking.
You can add a bundle to your booking to add either 15kg or 23kg of hold baggage, amongst other benefits, including free reserved seating and priority boarding.
You do not need to add a bundle to your booking to get hold baggage, instead you can add as much or as little as you need on the extras page during the booking process. You can even book different amounts for your outbound and return flights.
If you want to add baggage to your completed booking, or just want to increase your allowance just retrieve your booking and add what you need by clicking on the "change flight details/add extras" button. You can even do this on your smart phone at the airport.
and don't worry if you need to take a bit more, you can retrieve your booking at any point until you check in and add more, only paying the difference between your already purchased allowance and the new allowance.
|15kg||£15 / €18|
|23kg||£20 / €24|
|30kg||£30 / €36|
|46kg||£40 / €48|
The weight allowance allows you to carry multiple bags with a combined weight of the purchased allowance, please take into mind that the maximum a single bag can weigh is 32kg.
