Passengers travelling on and off island on Flybe flights are being warned the airline will be cracking down on bag allowances.

The airline has released a statement saying they have previously "been inconsistent in managing this issue and other customers have understandably felt unfairly treated."

Any passenger with hand baggage exceeding allowance will now be charged £50 at the gate.

  • What is Flybe's hand baggage policy?
1st bag
Passengers are allowed one bag in the cabin that does not exceed 55x35x20cm
2nd bag
A second smaller bag is also allowed in the cabin, e.g. handbag or laptop case.

The policy crackdown will be in place immediately and will be enforced across all Flybe flights, including Blue Islands, Eastern Airways and Stobart Air.
