2008 News Archive - Flights - Monarch hand baggage restrictions
28 03 2008
The department for Transport has recently approved new security arrangements at a number of UK airports, removing the single hand baggage restriction, with Gatwick being the latest airport to lift this restriction from 31 March 08.
This change does not affect airlines’ own hand baggage regulations however and as such Monarch’s policy on the carriage of hand luggage remains unchanged. Each passenger travelling on a scheduled flight (flight prefix ZB) is entitled to one item of hand baggage with the maximum weight not exceeding 10kg per person and the total dimensions not exceeding 56cm x 45cm x 25cm.
For passengers travelling on Monarch charter flights (flight prefix MON), one item of hand baggage is permitted with the maximum weight not exceeding 5kg per person and the total dimensions not exceeding 56cm x 45cm x 25cm.
The policy on the carriage of liquids through airport security check points remains unchanged. Liquids may be carried in separate containers with a capacity not greater than 100ml, which must be presented separately for examination at the airport security point in a single, transparent, re-sealable plastic bag, which itself must not exceed 1 litre in capacity (approximately 20cm x 20cm).
