Checked bags

Here are a few things to keep in mind when checking bags:

Bag weight and size

Checked bags may weigh up to 50 lbs. (22 kg) and measure up to 62 inches (157) cm in overall exterior dimensions (length + width + depth) including handles and wheels. Any checked bag over these limits is subject to an additional $50 fee for exceeding weight and an additional $50 fee for exceeding the 62-inch size limit. Please note we will not accept bags over 70 lbs. and/or over 80 inches in the overall exterior dimensions. Please click here for other special items that are accepted, subject to certain conditions:

You can check your bags from two hours before your departure to 40 minutes before take-off. Please note, additional fees apply for checked bags not pre-purchased online.

(Military personnel traveling on active duty or permanent change of station orders may check two checked bags for free and are not subject to excess, oversize, or overweight baggage charges.)

Surveillance and inspection of checked baggage

Saftey first. All baggage tendered to Avelo for transportation is subject to surveillance and inspection by electronic and/or physical means with or without the Customer’s consent or knowledge by Avelo and/or authorized government agencies.

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration maintains a list of items that Customers are not permitted to carry in baggage. Please see our Restricted and prohibited items page.
