Each item of hand baggage should not exceed the maximum size so you can store it in the overhead locker or under the seat in front of you.

If your hand baggage is too big or too heavy to carry on board, you'll need to check it in at the flydubai check-in desk subject to your checked baggage allowance and applicable excess baggage rates. Before checking in your hand baggage, please remove any valuable items (e.g. money, jewellery, precious metals) and documents (e.g. passports, business documents, securities deeds).

In addition to your main hand baggage allowance, you can carry:

  • One laptop bag
    or
  • One small ladies handbag/gentlemen’s satchel (not exceeding 25 cm× 33 cm × 20 cm)
    or
  • One duty free shopping bag

Electronic devices on board: If any device you are carrying is damaged, hot, produces smoke, is lost or falls into the seat, please inform our cabin crew immediately. Do not try to operate or move the seat as this may damage your device.

Forbidden items

To ensure your safety and safety of other passengers there are some items that you cannot carry in your hand baggage. Please read more about forbidden items in hand baggage.

Travelling with smart bags

You can carry a smart bag as both checked and hand baggage, provided you meet all requirements outlined by flydubai. Please read our restrictions for smart bags for more information.

Passengers travelling with infants

If you are travelling with an infant and baggage is included in your flight fare, you can carry 10kg checked baggage and 5kg hand baggage. The hand baggage must be smaller than 55 cm x 38 cm x 20 cm, so you can store it in the overhead locker or under the seat in front of you.
