How much luggage can I take on a private flight?

Private aircraft provides the fastest and most comfortable transportation. Booking a private flight allows you the freedom to take your luggage on-board with you or have the luggage stored in the hold during flight.

The amount of luggage you can take on board depends on several things such as the private aircraft you are flying in, the number of passengers, and the size and type of your luggage.  Each aircraft specifies the amount of cubic feet available for luggage.  

Type of Luggage

Trying to figure out which luggage is the right size for your needs? The following provides insight into luggage sizing and everything else you need to determine which suitcase or companion luggage is the best size for you.

Personal Items 

Dimensions must not exceed 18 x 14 x 8 inches (45 x 35 20 cm) including handles and wheels. Pilots have final say in whether luggage may be flown or not.  Examples include: a purse, small backpack, etc.

Carry-On Bag

Maximum of 22 x 18 x 10 inches (56 x 46 x 25 cm) including handles and wheels. We may require that a carry-on bag travel as a checked bag if it cannot be safely stowed on a particular flight. Pilots have final say in whether luggage may be flown or not.

Checked Bags

Maximum of 62 linear inches (length + width + height; 158 cm) including handles and wheels and maximum of 40 pounds in weight (18.1 kg). Any bag that exceeds these dimensions or weight limit is considered oversized/overweight.  Pilots have final say in whether luggage may be flown or not.
