Check Width Of Aircraft Aisles

Tuesday, 14 July 2015

If you require a wheelchair, you should check whether the aircraft you will be flying on has aisles wide enough to allow you to get to your seat using an aisle chair. You should also note the restrictions on electric wheelchairs powered by certain batteries. Some batteries are considered a safety risk because of potential spillage.

IATA recommends luggage manufacturers make cabin baggage 42% smaller

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has recently released new guidelines for carry-on luggage, which will see the recommended allowable dimensions reduced to 55 cm x 35 cm x 19 cm. This is considerably smaller than the current standard allowance of 56 cm x 45 cm x 25 cm. If these guidelines come into play, it will become increasingly difficult for passengers to pack what they need for even a few days away. Many will once again have to check in their baggage. This means that travellers will be forced to pay checked baggage fees and will be at risk of incurring extortionate excess baggage fees. Only time will tell what level of confusion and extra cost to the traveller these new guidelines will cause.
