Luggage Restrictions

Packing for your trip. Luggage restrictions for air travel to the Bahamas

NEW FAA Requirement : Please note that airlines will now only allow ONE carry-on bag and one personal item (Briefcase, purse, diaper bag etc.)

Airline # pieces Max dimensions(") Max weight (lbs.)
American 1 45 linear inches 40
America West 1 45 linear inches 40
Continental 1 22 x 14 x 9 40
Delta 1 22 x 14 x 9 40
Northwest 1 22x14x9 40
TWA 1 45 linear inches 40
United 1 45 linear inches 50
US Airways 1  Max overhead size: 24 x 16 x 10 40

All sizes in inches.  Linear inches = Length + Height + Width

We would generally recommend that your carry-on piece does not exceed the dimensions - 22" x 14" x 9" and does not exceed a weight of 40lbs

New Security Measure : No knives or cutting instruments of any kind are allowed on any carry-on baggage. 

CHECKED BAGGAGE:  Domestic U.S. flights generally allow 2 free checked baggage items.  Some airlines will allow a third piece, but no carry-on piece may be taken.  A good rule of thumb is that the first checked piece should not exceed a dimension of 62 linear inches and a weight of 70lbs.  (Depending on the airline, smaller size and weight restrictions may apply to additional checked pieces.  We recommend you check specifically with the airline)

*Most airlines will allow oversize, overweight, or additional baggage for an additional fee which varies depending on the situation. Please contact a particular airline or visit their website for further info.

International flights generally have the same size and weight allowances but may cut down on the # of pieces that can be checked.  Allowance variations exist depending on the destination country. Check with a specific airline for more information.
