Top Carry-on Cases, recommended by Direct Luggage

Earlier this year Easy Jet announced it would be rolling out new cabin luggage size restrictions for guaranteed travel with passengers on board the aircraft. The new dimensions are 50 x 40 x 20cm including the wheels and handles.

Passengers can still choose to travel with a slightly larger hand luggage bag up to the maximum size of 56 x 45 x 25cm including handles and wheels, however on busy flights the bag may have to be checked in and placed in the hold.

Following this announcement, we have selected a range of cabin bags that comply with these new regulations to help make your airport experience as hassle-free as possible.
