Qantas Carry-on Baggage Allowance Explained

Qantas Carry-on Baggage Allowance Explained

Qantas Baggage

Questions about carry-on baggage allowances abound. 

Between fare classes and membership tiers and whether you’re travelling domestic or international, navigating the rules and regulations is a minefield. 

If you’re flying with Qantas either domestically or internationally there are certain rules to remember no matter the class or destination.

As well as satisfying dimension requirements, your carry-on baggage always needs to fit under the seat in front of you or in the overhead locker; not exceed carry-on baggage allowances; and not include any of the standard list of dangerous goods.

It's at Qantas’ discretion to require you to check your baggage at the gate (often for a cost) if it doesn’t satisfy the requirements. 

Carry-on Baggage Limits – Domestic and International

Carry-on baggage allowance rules limits apply to adults and children (except infants) flying on all Qantas and QantasLink operated flights. Dash 8 aircraft have their own limits that apply domestically. 

Australian domestic

For all classes on Qantas domestic flights (except Dash 8 services) the carry on baggage limits allow one piece up to 10kgs or two pieces up to 14kgs total. Dimensions and details of multiple pieces are pictured below. 

Tip: To calculate the total dimension of your baggage, simply add together the height, width and depth of the bag.

For all flights and classes, both domestic and international, passengers may also carry onboard one small personal item including a handbag, laptop computer, overcoat, small camera, a reasonable amount of reading material or a small amount of duty free goods (where permitted).

Other things to remember when packing your carry-on baggage: 

  • You should take all essential prescriptions and medications on board with you. 
  • Keep it light; not only do you need to be able to handle your bag easily yourself but there could be lengthy walks between gates and terminals. Plus, cabin space is limited.  
  • Always pack valuables and fragile items carefully. 
  • Batteries and powerpacks should always be packed in your carry-on. Check with your travel expert or ground staff if you have any questions.  

Children and infants

Children’s carry-on baggage allowances are the same as adults. Infants food and nappies required during a flight may be carried in addition to their own.
