LUTONBritish budget carrier easyJet is slashing its hand luggage allowance with many passengers set to be restricted to just a small bag that can be placed under the seat.

Passengers with basic-price tickets will not be able to pay extra to carry another bag on-board and the new structure will be valid on all flights from February 10, 2021.

However, customers who pay more in advance for “upfront" or extra legroom seats will be able to bring a larger bag in addition to the smaller one. Passengers holding easyJet Plus cards, or who pay higher “flexi” fares will also be allowed two bags.
Those who pay extra for 'flexi' fares will also be entitled to carry an extra piece of hand luggage.

"The limited overhead locker space on aircraft has meant that customers can’t always be certain they will have their cabin bag onboard with them.
The new policy will also reduce queue times during boarding and other associated delays which occur due to putting excess cabin bags in the hold and so the move will lead to improved punctuality for all customers,”
the airline said.

There are a maximum of 63 upfront and extra legroom seats on each aircraft operated by easyJet. Passengers who have an existing booking for travel from February 10 will be given the option of checking in a bag up to the existing hand-luggage size without charge.
