Or, you may bring a foldable suit pack that does not exceed 114cm x 60cm x 11cm.

The smaller item of hand luggage might be a handbag, umbrella or coat.

On regional New Zealand flights operated by the smaller Q300 aircraft, dimensions of your carry-on bag must not be larger than 48cm x 34cm x 23cm. If travelling on a Q300 flight and your item is larger than these dimensions but still within the standard dimensions permitted by JetStar your item will be checked free of charge.

If you bring luggage to the airport that you haven’t already paid for, you will be charged for the first 15kg per passenger and then for every additional kilo after that.

The charge for the first 15kg is $50 AUD on domestic flights and $160 on international flights to/from Australia.

The cost per additional kilo is $15 AUD for domestic flights and $25 for international flights. Connecting flights with a domestic and international leg will be charged at the international rate.

If you have purchased a checked baggage allowance but bring more to the airport than you paid for you will be charged per extra kilo, as above.

If travelling with young children you may also bring a stroller, cot, car seat or portable high chair at no extra cost.

Exceptional items:

Sports equipment such as surfboards, bicycles, skis, golf clubs and snowboards are accepted as checked luggage, but certain restrictions apply. Surfboards, for example, must not exceed 1.9m on smaller aircraft, or 2.77m on larger aircraft.

Smaller musical instruments can travel in the cabin with you. Those between 7kg and 15kg can be brought into the cabin, but an extra seat must be purchased for them. Instruments over 15kg must be checked. There are restrictions on the number of larger instruments that can be carried on one flight.
