Baggage Allowance for EL AL Matmid Frequent Flyer Club Members

Baggage Allowance for EL AL Matmid Frequent Flyer Club Members
EL AL makes every effort to afford you optimal flight conditions and a safe and comfortable flight.

You are entitled to take one piece of hand luggage with you into the aircraft cabin (at no additional charge), in addition to the baggage you send to the hold. Hand luggage should be stored in the bins above the seats or in the space below the seat in front of you.

The size and weight of the suitcases that are carried into the passenger cabin affect flight comfort and safety. That is why the size and weight of hand luggage must conform to the measurements that are permitted according to the cabin class that appears on your reservation and/or your flight ticket.

  • In certain cases, storage in the passenger cabin may be limited and your hand luggage will then be stored in the hold of the aircraft.
  • EL AL calls your attention to the fact that valuable items should not be packed into baggage that is stored in the airplane hold but rather in your hand luggage.
