Find out how many items of luggage you can take for free in the hold of the airplane, depending on the route, cabin, or fare that you’ve purchased. You can find details about maximum size and weight, as well as prohibited items. There is also extra information on luggage for children, people with special needs, and other useful material.

Checked baggage

What if you’re bringing special baggage or your luggage exceeds the maximum weight and size?

If you’re bringing something oversize and/or overweight as hold baggage, please review the freight conditions, maximum size, and costs incurred from excess baggage. If you’re bringing sports equipment, musical instruments, televisions and/or monitors, review the policies and prices for special baggage.

How much hold luggage can you bring?

Review your fare conditions if you purchased your flight before May 18, as you may have a different allowance to that detailed below depending on your trip.

What can’t you take?

As a preventive measure to protect the security of all those on-board, there are certain objects and goods that may not be transported neither as carry-on baggage or hold baggage. If you have any doubts about what you may or may not travel with, we recommend checking the page with restricted items.

Furthermore, we remind you travelling with Samsung Galaxy Note7 mobile phones is prohibited in all LATAM Airlines flights.

Conditions regarding transport of luggage

  • As long as your flights were purchased as part of the same reservation, your luggage will be tagged until your trip’s final destination. Despite this, in some instances you will need to collect your luggage at connecting points so it can undergo customs checks, or go to a different airport. This procedure will also be necessary if you are staying overnight at the airport. The luggage must be checked in again at the baggage desks.
  • The weight and items permitted in your baggage are for you only and cannot be transferred to other passengers.
  • If you have any other queries about refunds, changes, or anything else, you can check the hold baggage purchase terms and conditions.
