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 fee.

carry-on Volaris

This may be, for example, a suitcase or a backpack. To take it on board, it must be included on your boarding pass.

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 fee, you may take a total of 5 checked bags of no more than 55 lbs and 62 linear in  (length + width + height) each.

If your baggage exceeds the maximum allowance, a fee will apply. The maximum permitted for overweight baggage is 99 lbs.

To know more about the baggage overweight fees, review the additional services fees.

If you paid for an extra bag and would like to check in a sports item in its place, you will be able to do so at no additional cost as long as it does not exceed 55 lbs and 62 linear in. If you exceed the maximum allowance, an additional charge will be applied. To obtain more benefits, you can also add the sports equipment service.
