Baggage Regulations

Packing correctly can save you time (and money) at the airport. Here are the basic rules to follow, plus some further tips.

If you want to carry liquids, aerosols or gels in your hand baggage, here’s what you need to know:

  • Items should be packed inside one clear, re-sealable plastic bag, within your hand baggage. Each item can’t be more than 100ml and the total can’t exceed one liter. Generally, two pieces of baggage are allowed for international travel, with the total weight not exceeding 32kg. However, this may vary by airline and fare type. Check with your airline before you fly. A baggage larger than 90cm long, 75cm high, and 60cm wide, or that does not have a single flat surface, will need to be checked in at the oversized baggage counter. Please allow extra time to check-in oversize baggage. Excess baggage must be repacked. Excess baggage fees typically apply. New baggage rules have been introduced to help improve baggage services for all passengers at Marsa Alam International Airport. Bags must have at least one flat surface.

General tips

Pack personal belongings in your hand luggage.

Keep a laptop where it can be easily reached: you’ll need to place it in a separate security tray at the security scan.

Always remove old baggage tags. They may cause the baggage system to reject the bag they’re attached to.

Avoid using cardboard boxes. They need to be processed manually, which takes longer. And they’re not as durable. Don’t forget travel insurance.

  • Free of charge, trolleys are provided at convenient locations across the airport."

Baggage wrapping

  • Available at the check-in areas of the Main Terminal building. It’s a good idea to weigh your bags before you have them wrapped, thus avoiding unnecessary delays at the check-in counter.
