Ordering checked baggage
Checked baggage can be ordered at the time of booking. If you want to add checked baggage after you have made a reservation, you must make this request at least 25 hours prior to departure online or via our Contact Centre. Checked baggage can also be purchased at the airport on the day of travel. Please note that higher charges will apply to checked baggage requested at the airport.

We do not accept individual baggage units weighing more than 32 kg or less than 2kg. We permit a total baggage allowance of 64 kg per person. The weight limit does not apply to electric wheelchairs, musical instruments or animals in the cargo hold. We accept baggage with a total circumference of 300cm (maximum dimensions: length 250cm, height 79cm, width 112cm).
Items of luggage other than a suitcase, bag or backpack is referred to as oversized baggage. Musical instruments or sporting equipment smaller than 90cm x 75cm x 55cm and between 2-20 kg is permitted as normal checked baggage. Read more about travelling with oversized baggage.
Packing checked baggage
All baggage must be packed in such a way that it can withstand normal baggage handling. This means that the item will withstand the impact of coming into contact with other luggage in the baggage system and when loading/unloading the aircraft. Certain items are not accepted for carriage in checked baggage. Read more about restricted items.
Each passenger is solely responsible for packing their luggage in such a way that the contents cannot be damaged. To the fullest extent permitted under the Montreal Convention, the passenger is liable for any damaged caused to the Carrier due to their baggage, should for example, a bottle containing liquid in their checked in luggage break.
We strongly recommend for all baggage to be clearly marked with the passenger’s name and phone number.

Children under the age of two who have not purchased their own seat do not have a hand baggage allowance and are only allowed to take onboard food and drink for the journey.

If you have purchased a connecting flight with Norwegian (two consecutive flights under the one reservation number), in most cases your checked baggage will be transported to your final destination. If you have purchased two consecutive flights intended as a connection (with separate reservation numbers), you will need to collect your luggage before checking in for you next flight.
If you are travelling from an international flight with an onward connection on a domestic flight, different customs clearance rules apply to the transport of checked baggage.
Travelling to/from the US – TSA lock
If you wish to lock your baggage when travelling to/from the US, you must use a lock that is approved by US authorities or a TSA lock. We will not cover any damage caused to your baggage if it is forced open during random screening in the US if the baggage is not deemed to have been in the charge of Norwegian.
