Easyjet hand luggage weight

We are flying out with Easyjet as part of a package holiday. We knew about the hand luggage sizes but couldn't find anything about hand luggage weight. Phoned them up and they said as long as the case is within their measurement limits there is no weight restrictions. Has anyone had problems with this. Please don't make fun but I am taking my Mums ashes out with me in my hand luggage, come to think of it she would have fitted in a teacup lol, wouldn't like loads of questions from check in if I (she) was overweight. Thank you

You should have no problem wih it as long as you can {without help} get the hand luggage into the overhead lockers. Just {as they say} stick to the hand luggage size and you will be ok.:0)

Unlike Ryanair,Easy are more flight friendly

Hope this helps

Traveling with Cremated Remains

Consumers flying with cremated remains should bear in mind several important issues before heading to the airport. First, it is not always reliable to place cremated remains in luggage, as the luggage can get lost or damaged. But carrying on a container with cremated remains will have to pass successfully through airport security scanners. Therefore, you should know what kinds of containers are most likely to pass and what won't.

Scan-able containers

— cardboard or fiberboard

— cloth

— plastic

— transparent glass

— and probably all wooden ones.

Non-scan-able urns

— metal

— stone such as granite

— ceramic

You will have been given a 'certificate of disposal' I think it's called for the ashes. If you have it available, take it with you.

You may be lucky and get away with just shoving a box in your hand-baggage but you could just as easily be stopped and despite trying for the sympathy vote they may be confiscated.

You will need: the cremation certificate and a statement from the crematorium saying the urn contains only the ashes of the deceased. You should take as hand luggage in a container as described in post 2 above.

Even when we brought our dog's ashes from the UK we had to provide the above, so IMO if they are this strict for animals I am sure they will be more so for humans.

Hope this helps and don´t take any risks it really isn´t worth it.

Hello there

I have just returned from Tenerife having taken out my Dad ashes, we also flew with easyjet and we had to have a "cremation certificate" which the funeral company were happy to provide. We showed this at check in and didnt have any problems at all.

No one bothered us when we went through security at either Gatwick or tenerife and the only time we were questioned was when I declared that we had ashes with us at the check in, they just took the certificate and thecheck in guy rushed off to show it to his supervisor, no problems at all..

It was a very special trip for us...we also visited all my dads old haunts in Puerto de La cruz too, which was lovely....I hope you both have a very special trip and if I can answer any other questions then please do just ask :-) take care
