Hand Baggage

Here’s a quick checklist on the rules for hand baggage:

How many bags can I take through security, and what are the size restrictions?

Airlines flying from Guernsey and Alderney Airport's have their own restrictions on weight allowance for hold and hand baggage. Some airlines even have specific hand baggage policies for specific routes.

It’s down to you to make sure the number and size of bags you take through security meets your airline’s guidelines. These can change without or little notice so please check your airlines policy before you arrive at the airport. This means you can avoid being refused entry at the boarding gate.
