Flybe Offers Increased Hand Baggage

Flybe, a UK-based airline company, is allowing increased hand baggage sizes for its passengers, with immediate effect.

The airline is now allowing passengers to carry larger hand luggage, with maximum dimensions of 55 x 40 x 23cm, providing up to 20 percent more baggage space for travellers, from the previous baggage allowance.

Simon Lilley, the airline director of marketing, said, ‘Flybe has listened to our passengers’ feedback in relation to hand-held luggage so have worked on maximising our carry-on dimensions to the greatest possible allowance that can be accommodated on our aircraft. We know that a lot of our passengers fly day returns or just stay overnight. They enjoy the convenience of hassle-free regional airports and this change will make travelling with hand baggage even easier.

To this end, we are pleased to have also secured a great offer for our passengers with Antler and hope our customers will consider taking advantage of the opportunity to purchase a spacious new carry-on bag that is a perfect fit at a perfect price.’

The airline is partnering with Antler brand luggage to offer a quality approved cabin bag for its passengers, which originally cost around £120, at a discounted price of £50.

Julia Bradley, the head of marketing at Antler, said, ‘We are delighted to be working in partnership with Flybe who carry more domestic passengers than any other UK airline. That’s an awful lot of cabin cases to be stowed in overheard lockers and ours are not only light but also packed full of pockets to help passengers arrive at their destination organised and ready for their break. We look forward to working with Flybe and to providing more offers in the coming months to their customers.’
