All You Need To Know About Airline Baggage Rules

Airline baggage rules are a basic piece of information that everyone should know when traveling by plane. Unfortunately, many passengers are new to flying for the first time, but they do not satisfy the luggage regulations, which cause inconveniences such as having to pay a fee for the extra weight of luggage or even leaving some items behind. Join HoaBinh Airlines to learn about the regulations for carrying luggage on the plane so that you don’t have to make these mistakes.

How to prepare baggage to carry on board

You should remember some essential notes about luggage restrictions to carry on a plane to avoid unnecessary trouble. 

  • Restrict luggage weight: Almost all airlines have regulations regarding the weight and amount of luggage each passenger can bring for free. Check the airline's luggage policy if you will be flying and adhere to this limit to avoid paying additional fees.

  • Choose the appropriate suitcase or bag: Choose a good quality suitcase or bag with enough space to store your things. Please ensure that your carry-on baggage complies with the airline's size limit.
  • Organize your luggage effectively: Appropriately pack your luggage. Prioritize your essential and most important items for easy access when needed. 
  • Luggage Labeling: Fill in your contact information on the luggage label and attach it to your suitcase or bag. This makes it easy to identify your luggage and ensures everything is transparent in case of multiple identical suitcases.
  • Important belongings and items: Bring essential documents such as your passport, airline ticket, and boarding pass.
  • Pack your luggage tightly: Label a good-quality suitcase or bag with your contact information. If you bring valuables, put them in carry-on baggage instead of checked-in to avoid the risk of loss or damage.
  • Separate Prohibited items: Avoid bringing prohibited items such as weapons and hazardous substances on board.
  • Prepare checked baggage: If you need to carry more luggage or have large items that cannot be carried on board, prepare checked baggage and label it with your contact information.
  • Arrive at the airport on time: Remember to arrive early enough to go through check-in, check baggage, and quickly get through security.
