  • If your baggage is oversized or overweight, or unable to be appropriately stowed in the cabin due to the stowage limitations, it may need to be checked in cargo compartment at the boarding gate or cabin. Please switch off electronic devices in your checked baggage. Valuables should not be included in your checked baggage.
  • Please note that some hazardous items are prohibited by the law as neither carry-on nor checked baggage.

How to store your bags on board

Please stow your baggage by yourself under the seat in front or in the overhead compartment.
Also, we would appreciate your cooperation with offering consideration for the nearby passengers when stowing your bags.
Leaving baggage in a place such as aisle or emergency exits hindering the evacuation is prohibited by law.

  • If you are seated directly behind screen, cabin separating wall and do not have a seat in front of you, your carry-on baggage may not be placed at your feet.
  • Please carry on your baggage within the purview of stowable size and weight in the overhead compartment by yourself. (Carrying too large and heavy baggage onboard to stow by yourself have caused injuries and troubles between passengers.)

Passengers seated in emergency exit row are prohibited to place carry-on baggage at the feet or on the lap.

If your baggage is not securely stowed, the following situations may occur.

Cause injury

Baggage may fly out of the hands in a sudden turbulence and cause injury.

Impede emergency escape

Contents may spill out in front of emergency exits and into aisles, impeding emergency escape.

Hinder brace position

Baggage may prevent getting into proper brace position in an emergency.
