Vueling Airlines is a Spanish airline flying within Europe. If planning on flying with checked baggage, be sure to purchase your baggage allowance online rather than at the airport, to save up to about 40% on the checked baggage fees. Vueling does not allow any free checked bags, so be sure to plan ahead.
|Checked Baggage Allowance||5/10|
|Excess Baggage Fees||7/10|
One piece of carry-on is allowed, with a generous 10kg/22lbs weight limit. An extra "personal item" such as a small purse or briefcase is also allowed.+ Show Full Policy
On all Vueling flights, each passenger is allowed one (1) carry-on bag and one (1) personal item. The carry-on hand luggage must not weigh more than 22 pounds (10 kilos) and the external dimensions (H+L+W) must not exceed 55cm X 40cm X 20cm. The personal item includes one of the following: ladies purse, small briefcase, camera, or video camera.
*Note: Vueling personnel have the ability to further limit this allowance in the cabin provided available space in the aircraft.
Be sure to note that Vueling is VERY strict when it comes to size and weight allowances. Exceeding either size or weight allowances on Vueling flights will cost you a minimum of 35 EUR each way.
*All hand luggage must fit in the overhead compartments or under the seat in front of the passenger.
REMINDER: Bulkhead seats do not have underseat storage during take-off and landing.
Only the Excellence fare allows you to take hand luggage weighing up to 14 kg, plus you’ll have guaranteed space on board.
It is also permitted to carry liquids or semi-solids (such as baby formula) to be consumed on board for medical reasons or special dietary needs, although in such cases the Passenger may be required to prove its authenticity.
The following items may not be carried as hand luggage:
Guns, firearms and other devices that discharge projectiles (including all kinds of firearms such as pistols, rifles or shotguns, toy guns, imitation firearms, component parts of firearms, telescopic sights, compressed air and CO2, signal flare pistols and starter pistols, bows, crossbows and arrows, harpoon guns and spear guns, slingshots and catapults).
Devices designed specifically to stun or immobilise (including stun guns, tasers and stun batons, animal stunners and animal killers, disabling and incapacitating chemicals, gases and sprays, such as tear gas, acid sprays and animal repellent sprays).

Items (including musical instruments or similar) that do not meet the size requirements for hand luggage shall not be accepted for carriage in the overhead lockers of the passenger cabin, unless the Passenger has purchased an additional Ticket or Conjunction Ticket for the items.
Vueling does not allow any free checked bags, so you must pay in order to check in your bags. Depending on your route, the cost is between 8-16 EUR.
It is recommended to buy your checked baggage allowance on the Vueling website, as the fees charged at the airport are much higher, at 20 EUR per bag.+ Show Full Policy
There is no Free baggage allowance with Vueling, except with the pricier Optima and Excellence fares (See Below).
It is much cheaper when flying with Vueling to purchase your checked baggage allowance online, rather than pay the higher fee at the airport. Vueling Checked Baggage fees are as follows:
Paid online - 10-29 EUR per item, each way
Paid at Airport - 35 EUR per item, each way
Second and Third Bag
Paid Online - 25-90 EUR per item, each way
Paid at Airport - 70-90 EUR per item, each way
Each passenger can check in a maximum of 3 cases weighing up to 23 kg per item. If the maximum allowance is exceeded, you will be charged €12 per excess kg at the airport per case each way up to a maximum of 32 kg per case each way.
For flights operated by British Airways you cannot add bags through the Vueling website. You can do so at the check-in desk on the day of the flight. Once the suitcase has been checked, you cannot cancel your reservation or request a refund of the amount paid.
Optima Fare and Excellence Fare
By choosing either of these fares, each passenger may check in 1 bag of up to 23 kg.
In order to check in your musical instrument, it must be correctly packed, labelled and well protected so it can be carried safely.
At most airports where we operate, you'll find special conveyor belts on which to leave your musical instrument. You'll be told where to leave it at the check-in desk on the day of your flight.
