👜 Baggage regulations at Blue Air
In order to keep ticket prices low, the baggage regulations at Blue Air are similar to other low-cost airlines. There is no free baggage allowance for the cargo hold. Instead, passengers may, if necessary, add up to four hours before departure for the carriage of luggage for carriage in the hold. The maximum amount is four pieces of baggage per person. Depending on the tariff booked, Blue Air's luggage may not exceed a maximum weight of 20 kg or 32 kg per piece. As with many other airlines, Blue Air's luggage dimensions are limited to a size of 100 cm x 80 cm x 30 cm. How much the baggage charge depends on the route and the season.
With regard to the contents of the luggage, the general conditions for traffic safety apply. This means that in the suitcase no dangerous goods may be included. This also includes sparklers and compressed air sprays for cleaning the computer. Valuable items should also not be transported in the luggage for the cargo hold. Special baggage such as musical instruments or sports equipment will register passengers in advance with the airline. For these bags, the cost depends on the size and weight. A diving equipment may also be carried at extra cost, provided the tanks are completely empty.
A piece of hand luggage takes passengers free of charge. It should be borne in mind that similar to other airlines, hand luggage dimensions of 55 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm must not be exceeded for Blue Air. This is the only way to ensure that it fits into the luggage compartments above the seat and under the front seat. In addition, it should be noted that at Blue Air the hand luggage may not exceed a weight of 10 kg. If these two values are not met, the hand luggage must be in the hold. There may be separate costs.
Of course, the luggage must not contain any dangerous items. These include sharp utensils as well as razor blades. However, disposable razors are allowed on board. They are stowed in a transparent, small bag that can be opened and closed again according to international safety regulations. Freezer bags have proven to be very practical in this regard. Even toiletries with a liquid and gelatinous consistency should not be allowed in this bag, provided they do not exceed 100 ml or 100 g per container. For babies, food may be taken in 100 ml containers. The amount should be based on the needs of the child during the flight.
