Understanding Your Baggage Allowance

Hand Luggage

Every traveller flying with Norwegian is entitled to bring one carry-on bag in the cabin, free of charge. Make sure it fits within the dimensions of 55 x 40 x 23 cm and doesn't weigh more than 10 kg for Flex, Premium, and PremiumFlex tickets or 8 kg for LowFare, LowFare+, and Premium tickets on long-haul flights. This should fit neatly in the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you.

Travelling With Infants Or Pets

Norwegian also offers considerations for those flying with infants or pets. Infants under two years of age are allowed one additional bag (up to 5 kg) on all flights. Small pets may travel in the cabin on most flights within Europe, provided they are kept in an appropriate carrier.
