Icelandair Airlines Baggage Policy

Icelandair Airlines Baggage Policy

Icelandair is dedicated to providing its passengers with a seamless travel experience, and part of that commitment includes a transparent and straightforward baggage policy. Before you embark on your journey, it's essential to familiarize yourself with Icelandair's baggage rules to ensure a smooth and hassle-free trip.

Carry-On Baggage

Each passenger is allowed to bring 1 carry-on bag and 1 personal item on board. The carry-on bag should fit in the overhead compartment, while the personal item, such as a handbag, laptop bag, or small backpack, must fit under the seat in front of you.

The maximum dimensions for the carry-on bag are typically 21.6 x 15.7 x 7.8 inches (55 x 40 x 20 cm), including handles and wheels. The personal item should be within 16.5 x 11.8 x 5.9 inches (40 x 30 x 15 cm) in size.

Checked Baggage

Icelandair's checked baggage policy allows passengers to check in one or more bags, depending on their fare type and destination. The specific allowance and associated fees may vary, so it's advisable to review this information when booking your ticket.

For most routes, the maximum dimensions for checked bags are 62 linear inches (length + width + height) or 158 centimeters. As for weight limits, most fare types typically allow up to 50 pounds (23 kilograms) per checked bag. However, passengers are urged to confirm the weight limit applicable to their booking.

Excess and Oversized Baggage

Passengers who wish to bring more bags than their fare type allows or have oversized or overweight items may incur additional fees. It's recommended to check our website properly or contact us for specific details on excess baggage charges and guidelines for oversized items.

Special Items and Sports Equipment

Icelandair welcomes passengers to bring certain special items and sports equipment on board, such as musical instruments, skis, golf clubs, and bicycles. However, some items might be subject to specific packaging requirements or additional fees. It's crucial to notify Icelandair in advance and make necessary arrangements to accommodate such items.

Prohibited Items

For safety reasons, certain items are strictly prohibited from being transported on Icelandair flights. These include but are not limited to explosives, flammable materials, and weapons. To avoid any issues during security checks, please review the list of prohibited items on the Icelandair website before packing.
