easyJet has followed in the footsteps of Ryanair and Wizz Air with the introduction of new charges for passengers hoping to bring a larger item of hand luggage on board. Passengers who book standard-fare tickets to travel from February 10 will now face fees for cabin bags that have to be stored in the overhead locker.
This bag can be placed in the overhead lockers, or under the seat in front.However, from February 10 this rule is set to change.
According to an update on the airline’s website: “For all travel from February 10, 2021, the seat you have booked will determine what bags you are able to bring on board.
“Everyone can take one small cabin bag per person on board (maximum size 45 x 36 x 20cm, including any handles or wheels), which must fit under the seat in front of you.
“That should be enough to bring all the essentials for your journey or for a short trip. There’s no weight limit, but we do ask that you are able to lift and carry your bag yourself.”
Customers who have booked an “up front” or “extra legroom” seat can bring an additional large cabin bag on board free of charge.

The airline also says customers who booked travel before the rule change was announced will also be able to bring an extra bag on board at no additional cost.
