Turkish Airlines have changed the conditions for the carriage of hand luggage in the cabin

From December 17, 2020, Turkish Airlines will lift the ban on 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.
