Luggage is normally the first thing that you are going to pay for during your travels. If you are not determined to spend extra money, the only way out is to pack the most essential stuff in one handbag. However, here you should keep in mind that the EasyJet hand luggage size should not exceed 56 x 45 x 25 cm. Airport staff won’t care if your hand luggage fits in with this size and you can safely place it on the shelf above your head or under the front passenger’s seat. If you fail to comply with these rules, do not get surprised later when the plane takes off without you.
Children of any age should abide by the same rules that are applicable to adults. The only difference is that their EasyJet cabin bag size has smaller dimensions which are 45x36x20 cm. So if you travel with a newborn, you are allowed to carry two handbags, for you and your baby, if both match the description set in the airliner’s requirements.
Items to pack in hand luggage
You can access the list of allowable items to be packed in hand luggage on the airline’s website. It permits to take basic necessities a traveller cannot do without or a passenger’s personal belongings that can be of use on board. For instance, if you have an infant flying with you, you are allowed to carry some baby food, baby clothes, and medicines followed by a prescription. Likewise, adult travellers are free to take glasses, lenses, digital devices, etc. Duty Free products can be included in Easy Jet hand luggage as well.
Some items are not allowed to pack in hold luggage and instead should be carried in regular EasyJet baggage. Normally, such stuff involves items that may pose a risk to the lives of air travellers in emergency situations. For example, airport officials won’t let you board if you have toy guns, toenail clippers, manicure scissors, tweezers, or any sort of sharp objects in your handbag.
Liquid in hand luggage
Liquid is allowed on board but it should not exceed the total of 1 litre stored in containers, each with the maximum volume of 100 ml. Airport staff will also pay attention to how you keep the liquid. If the container is not see-through, you have no chance to board. The safety measures are really high, so you should prepare a transparent container with the liquid you are going to need and place it in a transparent zip bag. This will help you pass through an airport security checkpoint quickly.
What you should keep in mind is that liquids also include some hygienic items (shampoo, body wash, perfume, etc.), medicines (drops, solutions, tinctures, etc.) and some foods (yogurt, jam, honey, etc.).
However, some passengers are not subject to security screening.
