Traveling with carry-on luggage is a practical and efficient choice for those who want a streamlined and hassle-free travel experience. The freedom to move around without having to worry about checked luggage offers a feeling of lightness and flexibility, plus we avoid wasting time on the suitcase conveyor belt!
By packing smart and limited, travelers can easily bypass security checkpoints and enjoy faster boarding and disembarkation. Additionally, having all the essentials close at hand allows for greater comfort during the flight, as personal items, electronic devices and comfort items can be easily accessed.
However, not everything is an advantage, as there are some restrictions that must be met in order to carry your suitcase in the cabin. Otherwise they could throw their things at them at the security checkpoint.
Weight and size
Before boarding, it is important to research your airline’s baggage policies, because some fares only include one personal item and you will have to pay for your carry-on bag separately.
If you have already confirmed what your ticket includes, the next step is to know the size and weight allowed by the airline. Most allow a maximum weight of 10 kilos, combined with your personal item, and it must fit in the overhead compartments of your seat.
The so-called Carry On suitcases are 20 inches and are the ideal size to take with you in the cabin.
What is the personal item?
The personal item on an airplane is tucked under the seat in front of you, storing the essential items you need during the flight. From a small backpack to a stylish handbag, this reserved space allows you to keep the most important things close at hand for your comfort and entertainment during the trip.
What is allowed in hand luggage?
In hand luggage it is allowed to carry laptops, batteries for mobile devices, as long as they are not lithium (we recommend asking the airline you will travel on), mobile devices such as cell phones, music players, tablets, electronic readers, consoles of portable video games, cameras and equipment.
They can also carry their medication, if it is liquid and exceeds 100 ml, they must carry a medical prescription that supports why they are traveling with said substances.
Baby food is allowed as long as the baby is on board.
#AXMTip: If you are going on a long trip and have checked luggage, add an additional change of clothes in your cabin luggage, to be prepared for any unforeseen events. Also, if you want to stay fresh and clean after a long trip, include some MediClean gloves in your carry-on luggage. They are very portable and very good for not losing style, and ensuring hygiene, during your trip.
