Cabin luggage dimensions at Easyjet in 2022

Update of our article: Important the company has decided to modify its conditions and this from February 10, 2021, the change is important so read the modifications carefully:  cabin baggage at Easyjet free or chargeable in 2022 ?

The EasyJet company is one of our preferred companies for cheap flights to Europe. It is with them that we have left several times and have never been disappointed. But how many times did we see people who had to pay extra for their luggage on the spot because their size didn't fit? 

Small anecdote: at boarding a passenger had in addition to her small suitcase a handbag that did not fit in her carry-on baggage forcing her to pay an extra 69€ but her credit card did not pass. The crying lady didn't know what to do between leaving her handbag with marks on it. Luckily there was still room in her luggage for passengers to take it from her.

That's why it's essential to find out beforehand about the dimensions of hand luggage at Easyjet as well as in the hold before you get an unpleasant surprise and additional stress. We make it easy for you to find what you're looking for with the sizes and dimensions of cabin luggage at Easyjet updated for 2020.

Why does Easyjet impose a cabin baggage size?

At the end of less than 70 pieces of luggage the company calls the microphone to ask passengers to please remove their important papers, computers, batteries ... from their carry-on baggage to put it in the hold for free.  Indeed, the number of stowage spaces in the aircraft is limited and it would be illusory to think that out of the 160 seats there is enough room for everyone.

C’est pourquoi pour éviter de stresser ou de payer pour l’embarquement prioritaire Speedy Boarding nous sommes toujours longtemps à l’avance à l’embarquement pour pas dire les premiers 🙂  Ainsi on gagne du temps pour ne pas avoir à récupérer notre bagage à l’aéroport d’arrivée sur les tapis.

How much should an Easyjet carry-on suitcase measure

With the health crisis and heavy deficits, Easyjet is applying new rules on its baggage sizes, which come into force for departures from 10 February 2021. 

From that day on you will only be able to take one small piece of cabin luggage - Maximum size: 45 x 36 x 20 cm (including handles and castors) lThe bag must be placed under the seat in front of you.

To be able to take a cabin luggage as in 2020 of size 
 56 x 45 x 25 cm (incl. handles and castors), the wallet is available at an extra charge if you opt for an extraseat at the front or wide legroom or Easyjet Plus cardholders (€239 per year gloups...) or have a Flexy fare ticket.

Please note that if your luggage does not fit the dimensions then Easyjet will apply the following charges: Up to 15 kg if you declare your hand luggage out of dimensions at check-in between 8€ and 38€. But if you are told at the boarding gate there it goes from 45 to 55€ (the price varies according to the flights, and the time you arrive). 

If you have booked a Flexi ticket or an XL seat then you can take a small bag with you of 45x36x20cm.

je tiens à préciser qu’une erreur a été commise ; les bagages à mains autorisés doivent être de dimension 45 x 36 x 20 cm et le format 45 x 56 x 25 ne peut qu’être accepté si on paye un supplément Up Front ou Extraleg room
