Turkish Airlines Cabin Bag Allowance
Turkish Airlines – this is a guide to Turkish Airlines hand luggage allowance and we will also give you tips on how to pack well and avoid excess baggage fines as there are weight and size limits for cabin bags. Check before you fly and make sure you take the right cabin bag for your Turkish Airlines flight and learn how to pack light.
It is worth noting that on most Turkish Airlines international flights economy class passengers have a free hold allowance of 20kg and business class 30kg although it is worth noting this varies for some destinations (check here.) Still, there are advantages in travelling light and taking just hand luggage saves time at the airport, gives you greater freedom and less to lose while helping immerse you into local cultures more as you will have less home comforts but free hold luggage allowance makes it less important.
Economy Class Turkish Airlines Cabin Baggage Allowance Policy
You are allowed a cabin bag of dimensions up to 55 x 40 x 23 cm as cabin baggage so that is the Turkish airlines maximum cabin bag size which is relatively standard and reasonably generous.
There is also a hand baggage weight limit of 8kg which is rather low compared to most other airlines but Turkish Airlines do give you free hold luggage so that does largely offset this.
You will have to follow the normal liquid restrictions and rules so you are limited to bottles 100ml or less.
See my Recommendations for recommended cabin bags but I would normally recommend the:
Cabin Max Range of Cabin Bags which are Lightweight, Good Sizes for Turkish Airlines and Inexpensive – Available on Amazon
You are also allowed one personal item additionally which includes a laptop/tablet or a camera or “male/female purse” – which really is vague and unhelpful!

Turkish Airlines Official Baggage Information – worth checking before you fly to get the rules from the horse`s mouth, so to speak, although our guides are normally very accurate but should only be used as a guide.
Summary of Turkish Airlines Cabin Bag Policy
