Aer Lingus checked baggage allowance and baggage fees

How much luggage you are allowed to check with Aer Lingus depends on whether you are travelling within Europe or on a transatlantic flight, and how far you are travelling (i.e. near, mid or far routes).

The following charges are applicable when travelling within Europe, on a ‘Saver’ fare:

Near Routes:

Small: one bag at 15 kg - €15

Medium: one bag at 20 kg - €25

Large: one bag at 25 kg - €35

Xtra large: 40 kg across two bags - €60

Mid Routes:

Small: one bag at 15 kg - €35

Medium: one bag at 20 kg - €40

Large: one bag at 25 kg - €45

Xtra large: 40 kg across two bags - €70

Far Routes:

Small: one bag at 15 kg - €50

Medium: one bag at 20 kg - €55

Large: one bag at 25 kg - €60

Xtra large: 40 kg across two bags - €85

You can add up to three extra pieces of luggage for €10 each but these must be included within the weight allowance you are paying for.

If you do not pre-book your baggage allowance online you will need to pay airport baggage charges to check in luggage:

20 kg on near routes: €35

20 kg on mid routes: €50

20 kg on far routes: €65

The following allowances are applicable when travelling on a transatlantic flight, on an ‘Economy Low/ Flex’ fare:

Aer Lingus Excess baggage fees

You would be expected to pay €10 per kilo of excess luggage on flights within Europe and €75 per overweight piece on long-haul flights.

aer lingus Exceptional items

You are permitted to check sports equipment into the hold but are only allowed one item per person, with no item exceeding 23 kg in weight.

On transatlantic flights, a sports item can be checked as part of your free baggage allowance, but if this brings you over your free allowance, a fee of €75 applies, one way.

On flights within Europe the fee for checking sports equipment is €40, one way, if paid online, or €50 at the airport or by telephone. Some items, such as bicycles, must be booked by telephone.

Musical instruments under 55 x 40 x 24 cm can be carried as hand luggage, and larger items, such as a guitar, can be carried on board if an additional, window, seat is purchased for it. Even larger items can be checked into the hold, on payment of a special handling fee.
