In addition, a small handbag or laptop may also be taken on board provided it does not exceed 40 x 30 x15 cm. It must be placed under the seat directly in front of you. Should it exceed the dimensions mentioned above, it will be checked in and charged as hold baggage. (See our Fees and Charges table)


Travelling with a Smart Bag

Guests can bring Smart Bags on board all fastjet flights as long as

  1. the lithium battery is disconnected and placed in the bag,

  2. and the bag adheres to size and weight restrictions mentioned above. 

If you are unable to remove the battery from the bag, for safety reasons it will not be accepted for travel, as lithium batteries pose a possible fire risk. This is in line with IATA rules.
