Are you about to take a flight with VivaAerobus? Mexico’s low-cost airline lets you carry luggage
– In the cabin (hand luggage)
The three Light, Extra and Smart fares entitle you to the following baggage allowance: One piece of baggage that weighs 22 Pounds (Weight) and measures 48″ or 55 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm (Dimensions).
VivaAerobus informs its customers that for any baggage that exceeds the weight and size of the authorized allowance, be transferred to the hold, the transport of which is subject to payment.
In another case, hand baggage can be transported to the hold of the aircraft if the baggage compartments are already full, but without any fees charged by the air carrier. Baggage is tagged and collected when you disembark from the plane.
Liquids in hand luggage? Their transport is subject to strict regulations
The rule for carrying liquids in hand luggage is simple. VivaAerobus authorizes its passengers to carry in their hand luggage liquids, aerosols and creams, … provided they are packed in containers of 100ml (3.4 Oz) maximum (up to ten containers) or 100 grams for creams, pastes , … which must themselves be placed in transparent plastic bags with a ZIP closure, and measure 20cm x 20cm.
Transporting liquid baby products?
VivaAerobus makes an exception to the rule of transporting liquids in cabin baggage by allowing their parents to bring products such as powdered milk and bottle water including food, but their weight is included in hand baggage allowance. So if you want to travel with an extra handbag in which you put the necessary products that your baby needs during the trip, you should consider buying the baby package offered by the Mexican airline.
Toiletries can explode under cabin pressure, so opt for partially filled items. If possible, carry bottles with liquids that are not completely filled.
During takeoff and landing, the aircraft is pressurized and there is a good chance that a full cylinder will open and leak during flight.
The best way to pack your hand luggage
Every passenger who is about to take a flight with VivaAerobus and who wishes to travel with hand luggage should be aware of the amount of luggage they can take on the plane before packing their bags.
Check height and weight restrictions. It’s one thing to pack efficiently and use as much space as possible, but there’s no point if your bag ends up being too heavy for the plane.
Weigh your hand luggage before arriving at the airport
You can use a normal scale for this. If it’s a low-cost airline like VivaAerobus, the rules are stricter when it comes to hand luggage.
Put heavy objects at the bottom of the suitcase
In your hand luggage, remember to always put heavy shoes at the bottom and lighter clothes at the top.
This helps reduce potential wrinkles in clothing and everything tends to stay more organized during the ride.
It’s usually worth carrying the bulkier clothes instead of packing them in the suitcase.
Take advantage of the space inside the shoes, especially for delicate items
Several passengers put underwear, socks or small t-shirts inside my shoes. It’s a practical solution that saves space and prevents the shoes from looking crushed when unpacking.
Shoes are also a good place to store more delicate items, such as sunglasses, watches, perfumes and other accessories.
Put objects upright
When you feel that your suitcase is completely full and you have no more room, simply close it, stand it up on its wheels and open the top a little.
You can always fit a few more items as the rest of the clothes slide down creating more space on top.
