Checking luggage into the cargo hold of any flight inevitably involves some delay as you will need to wait for it to be unloaded at your destination; very occasionally, checked-in luggage can go astray and take some time to catch up with you. For these reasons, some people prefer to travel light and take all of their belongings on board with them in their hand luggage, whilst others (who may have a lot of luggage to transport) simply prefer to take their essential items on board the flight. The Monarch cabin bag allowance offers flexibility to enable you to take on board the items that you need to make your flight comfortable, and those which you want to keep close to you throughout the journey.

When flying with Monarch, cabin bags must weigh a maximum of 10kg. You have the choice of either taking onboard a single cabin bag weighing 10kg and being no larger than 56cm x 40cm x 25cm, or two separate cabin bags with a combined weight of 10kg and the combined dimensions of 56cm x 40cm x 25cm. With either of these options, you can also take on board a small bag of duty free purchases from the airport.

Each passenger with a seat is entitled to carry on one or two cabin bags, as above, though if you have a baby or infant who will be travelling on your knee, they will not have a Monarch cabin bag allowance of their own and you will need to pack their essentials for the journey in your own cabin bag(s).

When planning your journey, ensure that you have measured and weighed each item of hand luggage carefully, taking account of any parts of the luggage that protrude, such as handles and wheels. The overhead compartments and under-seat storage areas are not very flexible and the dimensions stated are very strict, so to avoid disappointment, inconvenience and extra cost, be sure that your measurements are accurate before heading to check-in. Alternatively, if you are concerned that your bag may not quite fit, perhaps treat yourself to a new, approved Monarch cabin bag for the journey to avoid any hassle at the airport.

A single Monarch cabin bag of the correct dimensions can fit in the overhead compartment and a smaller bag can be placed under the seat in front of you. If either or both cabin bags are too large and/or heavy, it/they will need to be checked into the cargo hold with the rest of your luggage and you will have to pay a fee.
