WestJet Baggage Allowance

Carry-on Baggage

WestJet does not prescribe any weight limit for the hand or carry-on baggage. However, it does require the passengers to carry light weight baggage. However, it does prescribe the dimension limits for the luggage and requires passengers to adhere to these limits. If these dimensional limits are exceeded, the baggage is taken as a check-in baggage and then the fee applies.

Every passenger is permitted 1 free piece of Carry on luggage and 1 personal item.
