Everything you need to know before flying with SunExpress

SunExpress baggage

Krystof Hajek updated 23. 8. 2023

Baggage allowances on SunExpress airlines vary depending on the fare purchased. In most cases, passengers have both carry-on and checked baggage included in the ticket price.

Hand luggage

Passengers on SunExpress flights always have 1 piece of hand luggage, either smaller or larger depending on the fare.

The SunLight fare is only available on selected flights, and includes a small carry-on bag measuring 40 x 30 x 20 cm and 4 kg. However, you'll virtually always have tickets on the higher SunEco, SunClassic or SunPremium fares, which entitle you to a larger carry-on bag measuring 55 x 40 x 23 cm and weighing 8 kg.

  • 40 x 30 x 20 cm and 4 kg for the SunLight fare
  • 55 x 40 x 23 cm and 8 kg for SunEco, SunClassic or SunPremium fares

If you are flying on holiday with a travel agent, in the vast majority of cases you will have the SunEco tariff.

Checked baggage

As in the above case, the weight limit will depend on the fare you choose. The only case where you will not have checked baggage included is on the SunLight fare. For all other fares you will have at least 20 kg regardless of the number of suitcases.

The weight limits are best summarised in the table below:

Destinations SunLight SunEco SunClassic SunPremium
International Lines - Antalya, Alanya, Bodrum, Dalaman - 20 kg 25 kg 30 kg
Other international lines - 30 kg 35 kg 40 kg
Domestic lines - 15 kg 20 kg 25 kg

If you are flying with a connecting flight, the international flight limit always applies.

The permitted dimensions are classical in the form of the sum of all sides (height x depth x length) with a maximum dimension of 158 cm. If your baggage is larger, there is a charge 45 EUR. For each kilogram over the weight allowance, there is a charge 10 EUR.

Strollers for children

When travelling with small children, you are entitled to free carriage of a pushchair, car seat and travel cot. All items must be checked in at the departure desk. The pushchair can then be handed in at check-in or just before boarding.

In addition, children under 2 years of age are automatically entitled to 20 kg of checked baggage regardless of the fare on which you are travelling.

Carriage of animals

SunExpress allows the carriage of animals in the cabin and below deck. It is necessary to request a transport reservation at least 3 days before departure, but ideally immediately with or after the purchase of the ticket.

The price for transporting an animal is as follows:

  • weight up to 8 kg - transported in the cabin for 60 EUR
  • weight over 8 kg - carried in the hold from 85 EUR

The weight is calculated including the crate for the dog, cat or other animal. At the same time, the crate for carriage in the cabin must meet the dimensions of hand luggage.
