Carry-on Baggage

Transport Canada regulations state that carry-on baggage must not exceed the carrier’s maximum weight and dimensions. You will be issued a carry-on baggage tag at the check-in counter. Any bag that arrives at the gate without a carry-on baggage tag will be sized and weighed; your bag may not make it on your flight if aircraft weight guidelines are exceeded. To ensure that your check-in experience is as fast as possible please refer to our carry-on baggage allowance below.

Maximum Dimensions

9 In x 11 in x 14 in (23 cm x 28 cm x 35 cm)

Examples include:

  • Purse
  • Camera bag
  • Shopping bag
  • Duty free purchases
  • Briefcase
  • Laptop


As a guideline your carry-on should not weigh more than 13 lbs (5.9kg).


All carry-on items must:

  1. fit in the sizing device at check-in and at the gate.
  2. be light enough for you to carry onboard the aircraft without assitance.

Excess baggage

You are allowed a combined maximum weight of 63 lbs for your carry-on + checked baggage. If your baggage exceeds the maximum combined weight you will be charged an excess baggage fee of $1.00/lb for each lb. above the maximum weight.
