Baggage Policy

Personal Baggage Policy on Domestic Flights:

Maximum domestic flight baggage allowance (excluding Arkia Low Cost flights) is 10kg. Baggage allowance for non-Israeli tourists on domestic Arkia Low Cost flights is 20kg. Baggage exceeding this weight incurs an excess baggage charge. Under the regulations, all baggage on Arkia Low Cost flights is subject to a baggage fee.  

In addition, each passenger may board with one carry-on weighing maximum 7kg and measuring maximum 20x40x55cm. Carry-on baggage must be stored in the overhead baggage compartment or under the seat in front of the passenger.

Hand luggage will be weighed at the airport and if it exceeds the allowance, it will be sent in the cargo hold. Regardless of excess weight, kindly note that, under IATA rules and regulations, baggage items weighing over 23kg cannot be transported.

Fragile, Perishable and/or Valuable Baggage:

These items should be wrapped carefully. Arkia does its utmost to transport your baggage safely. However, under the terms of the baggage contract of carriage, the company is not responsible for fragile, perishable and/or valuable baggage. When checking in, it is advisable to inform Arkia ground crew of any fragile items in the baggage so they may place a fragile sticker on the baggage.
