The personal item, such as a purse, laptop bag, or small backpack, should fit under the seat in front of you.
The checked baggage allowance for LATAM flights varies depending on the fare type, destination, and frequent flyer status. As a general guideline, for most international flights, Economy Class passengers are allowed to check one bag weighing up to 23kg (50lbs), while Premium Business Class passengers can check two bags weighing up to 32kg (70lbs) each. However, it is always recommended to check the specific baggage allowance for your flight as it may vary.
Extra, Oversized, and Special Items
For extra, oversized, or special items such as sporting equipment, musical instruments, or fragile items, LATAM has specific rules and fees. These items may require additional charges and should be declared during the booking process or at the airport. It is advisable to contact LATAM directly or visit their website for detailed information on how to transport these items safely and any associated fees.
Note that air carriers often change the details of these rules and requirements, so be sure to check directly with the airline on the day you are flying for the most accurate information. Additionally, members of frequent flier programs may enjoy additional benefits and allowances, such as increased baggage limits or waived fees. It is recommended to review the benefits offered by LATAM's frequent flier program to make the most of your membership.
By familiarizing yourself with LATAM's baggage rules, limits, and fees, you can ensure a stress-free journey and avoid any unnecessary charges or complications. Remember to pack your bags within the specified weight and dimension limits, and if you have any special items, be sure to follow the guidelines provided by the airline. Happy travels!
