SPACE A BAGGAGE ALLOWANCES

CHECKED BAGGAGE: Passengers are authorized to check two pieces of baggage not to exceed 70 pounds each (140 pounds total) and 62 linear inches (length + width + height = Linear Inches). Single items exceeding 70 pounds and/or 62 linear inches will be counted as two pieces and, therefore, fulfill the allowance for a passenger.

EXCEPTIONS: A3, B-4, duffle, and sea bags will be allowed as one piece up to 80 linear inches as long as they do not exceed 100 pounds. The same applies to large garment bags, golf clubs, surfboards, snow skis, bicycles, fishing equipment, rucksacks, wheel chairs, and/or musical instruments. 

Snow skis, bicycles, and fishing equipment should be properly packed to avoid injury to baggage handlers or damage to other baggage. Only one of these bags per person will be the allowed exception. The second bag must still comply with size restrictions and is limited to 70 pounds.

HAND-CARRIED: Each passenger is permitted to hand-carry one article (small luggage, garment bags, backpack, etc.) and one personal item (cosmetic case, purse, briefcase, small boxes, packages, etc.) for storage in the passenger cabin area. The weight of these items will not be considered as part of the passenger's baggage authorization on military aircraft. All hand-carried baggage will be weighed on all commercial contracted missions.

Hand carried items will be no larger than 45 linear inches and must fit under the passenger's seat or in the overhead compartment. Items that are too large will not be accepted for passenger cabin storage and must be checked-in. 

Passengers processing for travel on administrative support airlift:

C-21 and C-12, UC-35 will be limited to 30 pounds total baggage weight. 
C-9 will be limited to 45 pounds total baggage weight.

NOTE: Baggage weight may be limited due to type of aircraft or other restrictions. Check with your Passenger Service Center for more information. 
Space available passengers are not authorized excess baggage. Disposition of unauthorized excess baggage is the responsibility of the passenger.
