Turkish Airlines have changed the conditions for the carriage of hand luggage in the cabin
The airline’s press service announced the return of the standard carry-on baggage requirements, which were in effect before the spread of COVID-19.
“Carry-on luggage has returned to aircraft cabins. The General Directorate of Civil Aviation of Turkey (SHGM) has allowed carry-on baggage in the cabin from December 17 “– said the CEO of the airline Bilal Ekshi on his Twitter.
As a reminder, in August 2020, the airline introduced updated restrictions on hand luggage. These measures were taken to speed up the landing and reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19.
During the deterioration of the epidemiological situation, it was possible to take: a handbag, a laptop in a bag, a men’s briefcase or purse, baby food and hygiene products for a child.
The current requirements for passengers carrying hand luggage in the cabin of Turkish Airlines are as follows:
- Business Class – 2 bags, maximum weight up to 8 kg each, measuring 23x40x55 cm;
- Economy class – 1 bag, maximum weight 8 kg, size 23x40x55 cm;
- children (0-2 years old) – 1 bag, maximum weight 8 kg, size 23x40x55 cm.
We also remind that the SkyUp air carrier has updated the rules for being on airplanes during the flight. Wearing a mask is now mandatory, and the airline has imposed sanctions for breaking the rules.
