How much cabin baggage for children and infants?
Infants under two years old (< 2 years old) traveling on Porter Airlines (without a reservation) are allowed to bring a diaper bag and a collapsible stroller or car seat, but as checked baggage only. The diaper bag can hold essential items such as diapers, wipes, creams, bottles, formula and food. Stroller or car seat can be checked in at the boarding gate free of charge.
Medical equipment and devices in the cabin
If you’re traveling with a mobility aid, it’s important to notify Porter Airlines at least 48 hours prior to departure to ensure they can accommodate your needs. You can do this by calling the customer service of the Canadian company.
Porter Airlines allows passengers to bring medical devices on board, such as wheelchairs, CPAP machines and oxygen concentrators, provided they meet weight and size requirements.
Liquids, gels and aerosols in hand luggage
Porter Airlines follows Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) guidelines regarding liquids, gels and aerosols in carry-on baggage. These guidelines are in place to ensure the safety of all passengers on board the aircraft.
When packing your carry-on, you are allowed to take liquids, gels and aerosols in containers of 100 milliliters (3.4 ounces) or less. These containers must be placed in a clear, resealable plastic bag with a capacity of one liter (one quart) or less. Each passenger is allowed to carry one bag of liquids, gels and aerosols in their hand luggage.
It is important to note that the bag must be presented separately from other hand luggage at the security checkpoint. This makes it easier for the screening officer to inspect the contents of the bag and ensure that the items comply with regulations.
Liquids, gels and aerosols include items such as shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, deodorant, cologne, perfume and hair gel. These items are permitted in your carry-on baggage, but only in small quantities that comply with CATSA guidelines.
If your medical condition requires you to carry larger quantities of liquids, gels or aerosols, you will need to present a letter from a doctor or medical professional to the screening officer at the checkpoint of security. This letter must mention the state of health and the reason why you need to carry larger quantities of liquids, gels or aerosols.
Duty-free items in hand baggage
