Add baggage

For your safety and convenience we recommend traveling with as little carry-on baggage as possible. Passengers have the option to check in approved carry-on baggage at no additional cost; please ask at the airport check-in desk or at the gate.

Connecting trips

  • If your trip involves an international flight connecting to a domestic flight, on the same ticket - international baggage allowance applies to the whole trip. 
  • If your trip involves a flight to/from Greenland connecting to an international or domestic flight, on the same ticket - baggage allowance for flights to/from Greenland applies to your whole trip.
  • If your travel includes an connecting flight with other airlines, you'll find more details under traveling with multiple airlines.

Traveling with multiple airlines

This may also affect the fees that apply to your journey, and any duty-free purchases that you make during your travel.
