International Carry-On Size

Last Updated on

So you’re planning an international flight and wondering what the carry on size is going to be…

Let’s get one thing straight. Each airline around the world is free to set whatever baggage size limits they wish.

There is no standardized, official international carry on size.

In the United States, there is something approaching consensus that carry on size is 22 x 14 x 9 inches. Alaska, Allegiant, American Airlines, Delta, JetBlue, and United have all chosen this carry on luggage size limit, and that limit doesn’t change if you are flying internationally with those airlines.

But around the world, there is no designated international carry on size. Each airline sets its own hand luggage size limit.

Not only that… some international airlines have weight limits too!

But it’s not totally random…

Birds Of A Feather Flock Together

There are regional cliques where groups of airlines have the same carry on dimensions.

Luckily there is a place where you can check the size limits for international carry on luggage. We’ve compiled all the international carry on sizes in a chart.

It’s a long chart, so please use the filters to find the country or continent you are most interested in, especially if you are viewing this page on mobile.

You can also enter the size of your carry on bag in the “min” field and it will show only the airlines that will accept a carry on bag of that size.

Airline names are linked to the relevant baggage information page on the airline website.

European Carry On Size

There are a lot of airlines in Europe.

55 x 40 x 20 cm (21.6 x 15.7 x 7.87 inches) is one common size limit. I counted 15 airlines with this limit.

But you will also frequently see 55 x 40 x 23 cm (21.6 x 15.7 x 9 inches). I saw 10 airlines with this limit.

And the French and Italian airlines squeeze the width rather than the depth to get 55 x 35 x 25 cm (21.6 x 13.77 x 9.8 inches).

British Airways and a few other British airlines still offer a generous 22 x 18 x 10 inches or close to that (56 x 45 x 25 cm).

Asian International Carry On Size

Quite a few Asian airlines have adopted a 22 x 14 x 9 inches limit, but there are a variety of size limits.

The main difference is that there will likely be a weight limit that you need to adhere to.

Be careful here. A 15 lb weight limit is not a lot if your empty suitcase already weights 7 or 8 lbs.

The Verdict

It’s best to figure out which airline you’ll be using on your trip and double-check the carry on limits on their website.

If you are planning on doing a lot of international travel and only want to own 1 suitcase then a carry on bag that is 21 x 14 x 8 will be compliant with a lot of airlines around the world.

The best solution if you are fit and healthy enough is to opt for a carry on backpack instead of a suitcase. These can be packed and squashed to fit many airport sizers around the world.
