There is no weight restriction for easyJet carry-on items. ‘EasyJet plus’, 'flexi fare', 'upfront' and ‘extra room’ customers are also permitted to bring a second, smaller item, such as a handbag or laptop, to be placed under the seat in front. This item must have dimensions no greater than 45 x 36 x 20 cm.
Additional items permitted in easyJet hand luggage include overcoats, umbrellas, and mobility aids, plus one standard-sized duty free bag.
What If Your EasyJet Cabin Baggage Is Too Large?

EasyJet Hand Luggage Policy for Musical Instruments
Musical instruments can be brought on board as hand luggage, providing they do not exceed 120 x 38 x 30 cm. These include instruments such as violins, flutes and trumpets. The instrument counts as your one permitted item of hand luggage.
EasyJet Hand Luggage for Infants
If travelling with an infant seated on your lap, you may bring an additional baby bag on board, with dimensions no greater than 45 x 36 x 20 cm. If infants occupy their own seat they are entitled to the usual cabin baggage allowance, plus a baby bag. Customers on higher fares who already have a second bag are not allowed a further bag for an infant.
Children over two years of age with their own seat have the same hand luggage allowance as adult passengers.
'Hands Free': Check Your EasyJet Carry On
If you would rather move through the airport without your cabin bag in tow, you can leave your bag at easyJet Plus bag drop and pick it up again at the luggage carousel once you reach your destination. The cost of purchasing 'Hands Free' at the airport or online is now £7 or £16 for the family bundle.

Passengers are permitted to check into the hold up to three bags, each measuring no more than 275 cm in total (length + width + depth). The standard easyJet hold luggage allowance is 23 kg per bag (for bookings made from November 2017).
The easyJet hold baggage cost for 23 kg is between £9.49 and £37.49, one way, depending on the route and flight period, or £37 when paid at the airport. A smaller allowance of 15 kg can be purchased online for between £6.99 and £34.99.

EasyJet Hold Luggage Policy for Sports Equipment
Sports equipment, such as skis, may be checked into the hold, at a cost of £37, one way, for a small item (max 20 kg) and £45 for a large item (max 32 kg), if booked online, or £47 and £55 respectively if paid at the airport.
EasyJet Checked Baggage Policy for Musical Instruments
EasyJet allows musical instruments to be checked into the hold. This is charged according to the standard checked luggage rates.

Luton-based easyJet announce plans to cut up to 30% of its workforce, around 4,500 jobs, as they battle with a fall in demand for air travel caused by the pandemic. Responding to the restructuring, pilots’ union BALPA have called the announcement a “real kick in the teeth” and believe the airline have had a “knee-jerk reaction” to the situation.
