Checked Baggage

Your checked baggage allowance is dependent on the fare category you purchase for your itinerary

  • Plus All In passengers can carry up to 30kg in a single bag free of charge
  • Essentials Just Fly and Get More New Economy passengers can carry up to 20kg in a single bag free of charge

General Information re Checked Baggage
When you check-in, please ensure your baggage is secure, labelled with your name and destination address, and that old destination labels are removed. Do not pack medication, important documents, valuable items or cash in your checked baggage and please do not carry any unidentified baggage for other people as this is considered a security risk.

If you are connecting onto another flight, and are issued with transit boarding cards, your luggage will be checked through to your final destination. As there is no baggage security clearance at Barra passengers are required to collect their luggage at Glasgow and recheck-in for their onward flight.

For passengers connecting to Flybe services, not operated by Loganair, the luggage allowance is anything up to 40kgs however Flybe's own baggage charges for the carriage of luggage will apply for the onward flight.

For passengers connecting to a Flybe service with a Plus All In ticket the greater luggage allowance of 40kgs will apply. Please see www.flybe.com for details.

When passengers are connecting directly on to a British Airways service to London or beyond the luggage allowance will be 1 piece at 23kgs per person.

Cabin Baggage

  • Plus All In passengers can carry 1 bag up to 6kg free of charge plus a laptop
  • Essentials Just Fly and Get More New Economy passengers can carry 1 bag up to 6kg free of charge


General Information re Checked Baggage
In addition to the checked baggage allowance, you may carry personal items as cabin baggage. However, to ensure the safety and comfort for everyone on board, Loganair restricts the carry-on cabin baggage to one piece per passenger. The cabin baggage must be labelled at check-in, weigh under 6 kilos, and not exceed dimensions of 40cm x 35cm x 18cm i.e. to fit in an overhead bin or under your seat. On certain flights it may be necessary to put cabin baggage in the hold, and it will be returned to you at the bottom of the steps on arrival.

Loganair recommends passengers include important documents, cash, valuables, medication and laptops in their cabin baggage. Loganair recommends passengers do not carry items which are considered a security risk in their cabin baggage, for we cannot accept liability for items removed by airport security staff.
