If you are thinking about booking passage to Europe, Norwegian Airlines might be one of the best airlines to choose from.

If you’re curious about the baggage allowance of Norwegian airlines and what you can bring on board, or if there is a stowaway that you might have bought just before your trip started and you want to know if they’re still sitting up top, this is the right place you could get the answers for all your queries.

Hand Carry-on bags

Norwegian airlines have six different types of ticket, each with different benefits for passengers. The LowFare ticket has the least restrictions, but there are other features that only come with its higher price. There is also a LowFare , which has less extra features too. Its Flex fare has extra features such as airport check-in baggage and priority boarding into the plane.

Sporting equipment guidelines

The governmental guidelines on yacht storage differ between the U.S, Europe and Australia. They are different because of the specific laws regarding salt water environments, dangerous materials, and a variety of other reasons.

Extra Baggage Fees

A Norwegian airline has really strict policies when it comes to baggage weighing over the limit allowed. You cannot carry on a bag that weighs too much even by a few numbers. For example, if your bag weighs 73 kilograms and those nine are in single digits like 74, you need to pay the extra fee.

Restricted items

With many different policies, there are some items that are considered absolutely restricted to carry with you. The airline authorities do not permit the transportation of these items.


What is the maximum weight allowed for bags to be checked in?

The limit of weight that’s allowed in one bag is 32 pounds. The limit is set to prevent injury resulting from overweight people trying to check more than one bag at the time.

What to do if you lose any item from your bag?

Losing something in your luggage is incredibly inconvenient and can lead to delayed or missed connections. We recommend contacting Backport if you’ve lost something from your luggage.

What if you find out that your bag is damaged?

You should present your identification documents and the bag with any damage to an airline representative you believe is responsible for the damages.
