Carry-on baggage

 
 

Know the weight and size limits for your baggage

  • Given that carry-on baggage is transported inside the aircraft cabin (in an overhead compartment or under a seat), it may not weigh more than 5 kg (11 lbs).
  • For the same reason, the sum of the baggage’s dimensions (length + width + height) must not exceed 115 cm (45 in) or be greater than 20 x 45 x 55 cm (45 inches or 7.8 x 17.7 x 21.6 inches). Therefore, backpacks and small bags are preferable types of baggage.

Free baggage

  • If you are traveling with a lap child, you may check 1 stroller or 1 baby carrier and 1 car seat free of charge. On domestic flights, if other items need to be checked for the child, they will be included in the baggage allowance of a parent or guardian. On international flights, babies are entitled to a 10 kg (22 lbs) baggage allowance, in addition to the baggage allowance described above.
  • Special needs passengers who use a mobility or medical device (such as a wheelchair, for example) may transport such items at no additional cost. If the passenger is travelling with more than one item, GOL offers an 80% discount on the excess baggage fee for indispensable mobility or medical devices. Learn more about the boarding of passengers e with physical disabilities or permanent or or temporary reduced mobility..
 
 
 

Excess baggage

  • On domestic flights or flights to South American or the Caribbean, excess baggage fees are charged according to the table above. However, if the sum of an item’s linear dimensions exceeds 203 cm (80 in), it will not be accepted.
  • On flights to the United States, excess baggage fees will be charged when the sum of an item’s linear dimensions (length + width + height) exceed 157 cm (62 in) or when the total number of items exceed the limit specified in the table above. If the sum of the linear dimensions of an item exceeds 203 cm (80 in), it will not be accepted.
 
 
 

Maximum number of items

  • Regardless of the flight's baggage allowance policy (weight or number of items), GOL will only accept a total of 10 items per passenger.
  • For safety reasons, baggage that exceeds the baggage allowance will only be accepted on the passenger's original flight if there are no weight or space restrictions on the aircraft. The passenger may opt to have GOL transport the excess baggage on the next available flight, but it will be the passenger's responsibility to pick up the bags at the destination airport.
 
 
 

Combined baggage allowance

GOL allows two or more passengers travelling under the same locator code and who check in together to combine their baggage allowances.
