Due to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requirements, we inform you that for flights to and from the United States you are permitted to bring through the security filters at U.S. airports up to two pieces of hand luggage. We advise you to take any necessary measures to avoid inconveniences.

Important: Our baggage policy has changed. If you purchased your flight(s) before January 27th, the original baggage policy included in your reservation is still applicable in accordance with the category purchased at that time.

The benefits included in the tickets that you purchased before January 27th will appear on your itinerary in the My Trips section, or in the mobile app, 72 hours before your flight’s departure.

Additional baggage

Fees for additional baggage will apply. Click here to consult such charges.

personal item Volaris

Your personal item must fit below the seat in front of you. It may be, for example, a handbag, a portfolio, a small backpack or a laptop bag.

For comfort and safety, if your personal item does not fit below the seat in front of you, it will have to travel as carry-on baggage with an additional charge.

carry-on Volaris

This may be, for example, a suitcase or a backpack. To take it with you on board, you must have a Vuela Classic or Vuela Plus reservation or have purchased additional carry-on (Vuela Basic).

checked baggage Volaris

Checked bags are those that are stored in the plane’s cargo area. You must visit our check-in desks at the airport for the corresponding labels that will identify your checked bags and allow them to be transported to the airplane.

For an additional cost, you can take a total of up to 5 checked bags of a maximum of 55 lb and 62 linear in.

In excess of 55 lb or 62 linear in, a baggage overweight charge will apply. The maximum allowed overweight is 99 lb.

To know more about the baggage overweight charges, visit Additional Service Fees.

Add

Add carry-on and get priority boarding

If you travel with Vuela Basic or Vuela Classic, purchase an additional piece of carry-on baggage when making your reservation or via My Trips. By doing so, you will pay less than at the airport and you will enjoy the benefit of priority boarding.
