Qantas Carry-On Advice

Your carry-on baggagemust:

  • fit under the seat in front of you or in an overhead locker (including musical instruments)
  • not exceed the carry-on baggage allowances
  • not include any dangerous goods unless permitted for carriage.

If your baggage meets the above requirements, but we reasonably believe it’s not safe to be included as carry-on baggage, we may require you to check it in.

Qantas Carry On Free Personal Items

In addition to your carry-on baggage allowance, you may also carry onboard one small personal item such:

  • Handbag
  • Laptop computer
  • Overcoat,
  • Small camera
  • Reading the material
  • duty free goods

When packing your carry-on baggage:

  • Ensure you take essential medication and prescriptions onboard with you in your carry-on.
  • Keep it as light as possible as there can be considerable distances to walk at some airports and space inside the cabin is limited.
  • If you’re carrying fragile or valuable items, ensure they are appropriately packed.

Qantas Weight based baggage allowances

No single piece can exceed 32kg (70lb).

Total dimensions for each piece must not exceed 158cm (62in).

Qantas Children Baggage Policy

The carry-on baggage allowance for children is the same as for adults.

However, for infants, there is no carry-on baggage allowance. Food and nappies required during a flight may be carried in addition to the accompanying adult’s carry-on baggage allowance.

Qantas Musical instruments

A musical instrument in its hard-shell case that weighs no more than 7kgs and doesn’t exceed the maximum dimensions for musical instruments, can be taken as carry-on baggage and must be placed in the overhead locker. The maximum dimension for a musical instrument is 142cm = 85cm +34cm +23cm.
