Hand baggage

 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Planning a shopping spree overseas or a quickie business trip? In addition to the checked baggage, you are entitled to bring hand baggage into the passenger cabin with you (at no extra cost). How many bags you are entitled to bring onboard? We have summarized all of the information about the benefits coming to you as a Matmid member.​

​Before your flight...

  • Adhering to EL AL’s conditions for hand baggage (for size and weight) will help you complete the security check and check-in process quickly and easily at the airport. That is why specific sizes and weights have been determined for every piece of hand baggage, according to the class that appears on your reservation and/or flight ticket.
  • Your hand baggage will have to be stored in the bins above your seat or under the seat in front of you.
  • Remember that in exceptional cases where storage in the passenger cabin is limited, your hand baggage may be stored in the hold of the aircraft.
*Please note, with the launch of three new types of flight tickets in Economy Class to EL AL destinations in Europe and Far East and South Africa, some changes and updates in hand baggage conditions have gone into effect for Matmid members.
