If you have a flight operated by LAN, check its Carry-on Baggage Information.

 

Carry-on baggage

It’s the one that can be transported inside the plane cabin. These bags must be accommodated under the seat or in the overhead compartments.

We recommend as carry-on luggage any and every fragile, important and valuable object, such as electronic equipment, documents and medicine, for example.

The weight limits listed here are referring exclusively to segments operated by TAM. If your trip has connections with another airline, always check their baggage policy.

Domestic flights - Within Brazil

  • Quantity: 1 piece in economy class and 2 pieces in business class
  • Maximum weight: 5 kg
  • Maximum dimensions (height+width+length): 115 cm or 45 inches

Should measurements of carry-on luggage surpass these maximum limits, it must be transported as checked luggage in the hold of the aircraft.
