Baggage allowance banner

Carry more of what you love

When you fly with Scoot, you automatically enjoy up to 10kg* cabin baggage allowance - 3kg more than most low-cost carriers!

The extra allowance lets you save money and time – pack more gifts for your loved ones and spend more time enjoying your travels instead of waiting in line for your checked baggage.

Make sure that your cabin baggage does not exceed the permitted allowance before you get to the airport, or you will be advised to check in your baggage and may be subject to excess baggage fees.

Refer to our FAQs if you have more baggage queries.

*Limited to 1 carry-on bag and 1 personal item, within permitted dimensions.

Cabin Baggage Allowance

Economy baggage allowanceScootPlus Cabin Baggage Weight and Dimension Allowance

All Scoot and ScootPlus travelers are allowed up to two pieces of cabin baggage. Your carry-on luggage must fit within the dimensions of 54cm x 38cm x 23cm (total linear dimensions cannot exceed 115cm) to fit in the overhead compartment in the aircraft cabin and your personal item or bag must fit within the dimensions of 40cm x 30cm x 10cm to be stowed under the seat in front of you.

Rest assured that even after stowing your bag under the seat in front of you, there will still be sufficient legroom for a comfortable journey on our flights.

Pack within these cabin baggage limits for a smooth journey! By doing so, you’re helping to facilitate a seamless boarding experience when you stow your carry-on in the overhead compartment with ease, in turn, helping to make a better travel experience possible.

Non-standard baggage

Sometimes, you may have to carry large or heavy items with you when you fly. While most sporting equipment and musical instruments can be checked in or carried on board, some restrictions apply to extremely large items or a large number of items. For the maximum dimensions for non standard/ bulky baggage, please refer here.

If you need to transport these types of items on our flights, please contact your local cargo agent.

Sporting equipment

Your sporting equipment – such as golf clubs, surfboards, canoes, scuba diving apparel, skis and bicycles – counts towards your pre-purchased baggage allowance. If you exceed this allowance, the usual additional baggage charges will apply. This policy also applies if you’re travelling to or from the USA.

We are unable to accept any item above 32kg as checked baggage, and these items may have to be re-packed or sent as cargo. Connect with your local cargo agent prior to your travel if you wish to transport any item above 32kg as cargo.

Oversized musical instruments

Oversized musical instruments - such as a cello and double bass - cannot be brought on board our flights as cabin baggage. If you’d prefer not to check your musical instrument in, you may bring one on board by purchasing an extra seat to accommodate it. We'll place the instrument on the floor and secure it to the seat frame with seat belts.

After proper packing, your musical instrument should be no larger than 140cm x 40cm x 45cm, and not exceeding 32kg.

Connecting flights

If you are connecting between flights at Singapore Changi Airport, and whose connecting flights are part of a single booking itinerary, your baggage will be tagged and transferred to your connecting flight and final destination.

It is your responsibility to clear immigration, collect your checked baggage from the arrival baggage belt, and check in yourself and your baggage for the onward connecting flight.

Baggage Checks in the United States of America (US)

The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) stipulates that passengers travelling into and out of US commercial airports can no longer access their checked baggage once baggage screening is completed. Hence, we recommend that you remove all items you will need on board, before checking in your baggage.

TSA advises passengers to leave their baggage unlocked or use a TSA accepted and recognised lock to facilitate the search process. TSA will not be liable for any damage caused to locked bags if they are opened for screening. For bags opened during screening, the screeners will close it with a tamper-evident seal and insert a notice in your bag to inform you that the bag has been opened.

As this procedure is governed by US legislation and beyond the control of the airline, we regret that we cannot be held liable for damage or loss of items from your baggage. You may visit the Transportation Security Administration website for further information.

If you are travelling from airports that serve as the last points of departure to US, the TSA may require passengers to undergo enhanced security measures. Such checks may include the inspection of your Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs) and powder-like substances prior to carrying them onboard.

  1. Laptops
  2. Tablets
  3. E-readers
  4. Camera
  5. Portable DVD players
  6. Electronic game units larger than a smartphone
  7. Travel printers/scanners

All powder like substances with a container capacity of 12oz /350ml/350g or more are prohibited in the cabin of the aircraft and are advised to be checked-in. The following are exempted from the restrictions.

  1. Medically prescribed powder
  2. Baby Formula
  3. Cremated Human remains

You are strongly advised to carry any relevant supporting documentation for verification.

Baggage Checks for all flights departing from Australia

If you are departing from all Australian airports, please take note of the restrictions for the carriage of powder substances in cabin baggage.

At screening point, all powder contained in cabin baggage must be presented separately for screening. However, there is no need to place any powder containers in a resealable plastic bag.

Additional Requirements

Rechargeable battery packs, e.g. power banks, are treated as spare lithium batteries. The carriage of these items is subject to local regulations.

Spare lithium batteries are not allowed in checked-in baggage. They must be carried as cabin baggage only.

Never carry damaged or recalled batteries or equipment on aircraft.

Spare batteries should be in the original manufacturers packaging. If not, to protect it from damage or short circuit, you should tape across the battery’s metal parts (terminals) or place each battery in its own protective case or plastic bag.

Batteries must be installed in the equipment when checked-in.

All battery-operated devices in checked baggage must be completely switched off (not in hibernation or sleep mode). They must also be packaged to prevent inadvertent activation and protected from damage.
