New rules for hand luggage on flights to and from South Africa have recently been established by the South African aviation authorities.

As from February, passengers on flights to and from South Africa in economy class are restricted to one bag weighing no more than seven kilos plus a slimline laptop computer bag. Passengers travelling in business class and first class may carry two bags with a weight limit of seven kilos and a slimline laptop bag.

The seven kilo bag should be no more than 56 centimetres tall, 36 centimetres broad and 23 centimetres thick. The total dimension should not exceed 115 centimetres.
