Flybe Ticket Types

Flybe offers three different types of tickets. The prices of these tickets will vary depending on your route;

Ticket TypeBenefits
LiteFlybe lite is the standard and most common fare that includes a small carry-on bag at 7kg. Extras are available for an additional fee.
SmartFlybe smart is slightly more expensive than lite. It offers 15kg hold baggage allowance, small carry-on bag at 7kg, and seat selection in specific rows.
PlusFlybe plus gives you everything you need, including 23kg hold baggage allowance, small carry-on bag at 7kg, seat selection in any row, free ticket changes (restrictions apply), and fast-track security.

Flybe Checked Baggage

Hold luggage fees and allowances will depend on your ticket type. ‘Flybe smart’ passengers will receive 15kg checked baggage, and ‘Flybe plus’ passengers will receive 23kg checked baggage. ‘Flybe lite’ passengers will be required to purchase any hold luggage.

Flybe offers two hold options for customers to purchase online; Flybe smart allows one checked bag at 15kg, and Flybe plus allows one checked bag at 23kg. Both fare options include one small cabin bag at 7kg. Excess luggage charges apply to all hold bags which exceed the 23kg pre-booked allowance. Hold bags may only be purchased for the whole journey. No single item of hold luggage may weigh more than 32kg.

Prices are per person, per one-way flight. Passengers are advised to book baggage online, rather than at the airport as it is much cheaper.

Flybe Excess Baggage

Flybe offers the opportunity to pre-book and increase your hold luggage allowance (no single item can be more than 32kg, however, you can book multiple items), however, should you wish to carry hold luggage in excess of this permitted pre-bookable allowance, excess baggage charges will apply. If your hold baggage exceeds your pre-booked weight allowance, you will be charged a fee of £10 per extra kilogram.

Flybe Special Items

When travelling on a Flybe flight, there are certain ‘exceptional items’ which may be carried free of charge. These include pushchairs, prams, travel cots, car seats, wedding dress, bridesmaid dress, suit, mobility equipment. There are also certain exceptional items which can be carried for an additional fee. Items such as sporting equipment and musical instruments will be charged at £30 per item, each way. Each exceptional item placed in the hold has a weight allowance of up to 23kg (subject to space available in the aircraft hold). Should items exceed this allowance, standard excess baggage fees apply. If you intend to travel with an exceptional item, it is advised to contact Flybe prior to booking in case there are specific instructions relating to your item.

My Baggage – Airline Baggage Alternative

For those who purchase ‘Flybe smart’ or ‘Flybe plus’ tickets, baggage allowances can be quite generous. However, as these kinds of premium tickets are significantly more expensive, the standard ‘Flybe lite’ ticket is the most popular. However, baggage allowances are limited across these fares and fees are expensive, especially if you exceed the limits. Thankfully, that’s where My Baggage comes in.

You’ll also have the option to pay for even heavier bags if you need to, and you can add as many items as you like to your booking.
