Passengers will see the standard complimentary baggage allowance increase from 20kg to 23kg, with the option of selecting seats through the customer service centre or online up to 48 hours in advance. This will be charged at a fee of £8 for a standard seat, or £15 for an exit row seat.

In addition, there will be an online option to pre-book extra luggage (weighing up to 23kg) at a cost of £40 and sporting equipment for £45.

Additional bags can also be booked via the contact centre for a set fee or at airports for £80 each way, and sports equipment for £45 each way.

Any excess baggage will be taken at airports and remain at £10 per excess kilo. Extra luggage can be added at the website’s “Manage My Booking” up to four hours before travel.
