As part of our “Bring Less, Pay Less” initiative, Spirit allows you to save even more by bringing less baggage on your trip. We allow one free personal item per passenger on every flight (e.g. purse, small backpack, etc.), and we charge for carry-ons and checked bags. By giving you the freedom to choose what luggage you really need, Spirit allows you to save money and the environment. In fact, our customers reduced CO2 emissions by over 58,000 tons last year with the fuel savings from bringing less bags. There are no hidden bag fees with us; we want you to only pay for what you use, not for what you don’t.
Personal item: (e.g. purse, small backpack, etc.) dimensions must not exceed 16 x 14 x 12 inches (40 x 35 x 30 cm) including handles and wheels.
Carry-on bag: Maximum of 22 x 18 x10 inches (56 x 46 x 25 cm) including handles and wheels. We may require that a carry-on bag travel as a checked bag if it cannot be safely stowed on a particular flight.
Checked bags: Maximum of 62 linear inches (length + width + height; 158 cm) including handles and wheels and maximum of 40 pounds in weight (18.1 kg). Unfortunately, we cannot accept bags that weigh more than 99 pounds (45 kg), measure more than 80 linear inches (203 cm) in a single dimension, or have a combined size of 160 linear inches (406 cm).
