Handbags are considered by some airlines as an item of cabin luggage, while others will allow you to take one accessory into the cabin in addition to your cabin luggage (small handbags, laptop, cameras,…).

For infants under 2 years old, a luggage allowance can be granted for nappy bags, booster seats, cane strollers etc. Please check with your airline.

You can ensure safe travel in the hold as a precaution to all your fragile or valuable objects, films or photographic films, important documents, jewelry, money...
