Each Jet Blue customer is permitted to carry into the cabin one carry-on bag, plus one personal item. The carry-on bag must not exceed 22 x 14 x 9 inches (55.88 x 35.56 x 22.86 cm) and the personal item must not exceed 17 x 13 x 8 inches (43.2 x 33 x 20.32 cm).

If the carry-on bag does not fit in the overhead locker or space is limited, it will be checked at the gate.

children's luggage

Infants that are sitting on an adult’s lap have no baggage allowance. However, the accompanying adult may carry a nappy bag, pushchair and car seat for the child, in addition to their own carry-on items.


Certain pets can be carried on board the aircraft, and stowed under the seat in front. Only one pet per customer is allowed. It must be transported in a carrier with maximum dimensions of 17 x 12.5 x 8.5 inches and the combined total weight of pet and carrier must not exceed 20lbs. A carrier counts as one carry-on item. The charge for transporting a pet in this way is $100, one way.

jet blue checked-in baggage

Passengers can check items of luggage into the hold, with each bag measuring no more than 62 inches (157.48c m) in total dimensions and weighing no more than 50 lbs (22.68 kg).

The first item of checked luggage is free of charge on Blue Plus and Blue Flex fares, but $20 online on Blue fares.

A second checked bag costs $35 on Blue and Blue Plus fares (free with Blue Flex), and a third, or any further bag,costs $100. These prices may also come with VAT, up to 18%, depending on the route travelled.

If a bag is over the allowable weight, $100 per bag will be charged.

If a bag is oversized, the charge is also $100.

No bag larger than 80 inches or heavier than 99 lbs will be accepted.

Exceptional items, such as sports equipment is accepted as checked luggage. These do not always incur additional fees. A golf bag, for example, can be counted as a standard checked-luggage item as long as it does not exceed weight limitations. Bicycles, however, are accepted on most flights for a fee of $50, one way. Overweight baggage fees will not be charged for bikes, but they must not exceed 99 lbs.

Musical instruments can be checked into the hold and count as one item of checked luggage. No additional fees are charged, provided they are within size and weight restrictions.
