2021 Cabin Luggage Size Guide for European Airlines

At Cabin Max we pride ourselves on providing cabin luggage solutions to fit the requirements for all European airlines.  

In general most sizing falls within a similar range of 55x40x20cm, if you wish to purchase something versatile a soft-sided backpack can be the best option. Other options such as hard cases with 4 wheels are easier to move around an airport with but less interchangeable between different airlines. In between these Hybrid trolley backpacks are a great option, for ease of use and versatility. 

A lot of airlines now offer personal cabin bags (to fit under the seat) as a free option. These generally fall into a 40x25x20cm size range. 

In the guide below, you will find a list of airlines in alphabetical order, with a link to the airlines official hand luggage allowance page, worth checking in case of updates, and a link to our product suggestions.
