South African Airways (SAA) Carry-on luggage
The amount of hand luggage you may carry depends on which service class you are flying. For Business Class flyers, travellers are allowed two pieces of carry on hand luggage. For Economy Class flyers, travellers are allowed one piece of carry on hand luggage. Pieces may not weigh more than eight kilograms each.
All hand luggage must fit under the seat in front of you or in one of the overhead lockers. Hand luggage must not obstruct emergency exits or aisles.
Special items like sports equipment and musical instruments are subject to the same size and weight limitations as other hand luggage. Certain items, which do not conform to size and weight limitations, can be carried on board if you purchase an extra seat to accommodate it.
South African Airways offer three convenient check-in options: online check-in, mobile check-in and self-check in. Most SAA check-in desks close 45 minutes before flight departure. Checking in online or via your mobile phone opens 24 hours before your flight departs.
