Due to Ministry of Transportation safety requirements and the size of aircraft Pacific Coastal operates, carry-on baggage is limited to what will safely fit under the seat in front of you. Please review the CATSA website for details regarding prohibited carry-on items. Every effort will be made to accommodate your carry-on baggage in the passenger cabin; however, acceptance of carry-on baggage is subject to space availability on the aircraft at the time you board. In the event adequate space is not available, your carry-on bag may be checked for no charge to baggage claim at your final destination.
Items exceeding the free carry-on allowance will be checked at the gate and customers will be charged excess baggage if applicable. Bags will be tagged for delivery to baggage claim at the customer's destination.
Important: Keys, medication, and travel documents should always be packed in your carry-on baggage.
Carry-On baggage is defined as:
Max Total Weight:
25lbs (or 11kgs)
9" x 15.5" x 21.5" (or 23cm x 40cm x 55cm) including wheels and handles.
Number of Pieces:
Passengers are not limited to the number of carry-on items allowed, so long as all items can fit all together in the dimensions described above and weigh less than 25lbs in total.
The following items are permitted as part of Carry-on baggage allowance:
Carry-on bags: suitcases, briefcases
Diaper bags, camera cases
Child restraint devices (ie: car seat)
Medical equipment (such as CPAP and sleep apnea devices) and Personal Oxygen Concentrators
Pet carriers not exceeding the under-seat dimensions-See our Pet Travel section
The following items (ie: personal item) are permitted in addition to your Carry-on baggage allowance:

Purses (Female and Male)
Assisting devices (e.g. canes, crutches, walkers)
Containers carrying life sustaining items
Urns containing human remains
Pacific Coastal Airlines offers planeside Valet Service as carry-on option for our customers. Due to the smaller dimensions of overhead storage and under seat space, passengers may place larger carry-on items on a planeside cart before boarding. These items will be identified and returned to the cart for retrieval at a designated area on the ramp as customers deplane. Look for the Valet sign and find your bags waiting as you deplane. Fragile or high-value items should be carried into the cabin with you, so long as they fit the carry-on dimensions of the aircraft, and not left on the planeside cart.
The maximum dimensions for Valet Service items are 9" x 15.5" x 21.5" (or 23cm x 40cm x 55cm) including wheels and handles. The maximum weight for Valet Service items is 25lbs or 11kgs.
There is no limit to the number of pieces you're allowed to check in with Pacific Coastal, but there is a strict limit of 50lbs (23kg) for the total COMBINED weight of all of your bags. It usually makes sense to just bring a single bag up to the maximum allowed weight.+ Show Full Policy
Check-in baggage allowance is limited to 50 lbs (23 Kgs) per fare-paying passenger. Passengers are not restricted as to the number of pieces being checked, so long as the total weight does not exceed the 50lbs allowance, multiple items may be checked.
Though we do not offer baggage allowances for infants traveling for free, passengers may check one car seat and one stroller at no additional charge. See our Car Seats & Strollers section. Infants are defined as any child who has not yet reached his/her 2nd birthday. In order to comply with Transport Canada safety regulation, the adult to infant ratio must be 1:1.
While we do our best to ensure your baggage travels with you on your flight, in rare circumstances baggage may follow you on a subsequent flight.
