To keep our fares as low as we do, we have strict limits on how much baggage you can take on board. So, before you arrive at Cairns Airport, please make sure the weight of your two baggage items is less than 7kg combined. If that's not enough for your trip, you can purchase Cabin+ at the time of booking to increase your total allowance to 12kg.
