EVA Air has a fairly generous baggage allowance, but don’t get caught out on overweight checked baggage — this is charged by piece, so the opportunity isn’t there to pay for just a few extra pounds.

EVA Air’s Carry-on Allowance:

1 personal item: Free for all classes
1 standard carry-on bag: Free for economy class passengers
2 standard carry-on bags: Free for Royal Laurel, Premium Laurel, and business class passengers

  • Personal: 16” x 12” x 4”
  • Standard: 9” x 14” x 22” ( maximum weight 15 lb)

Lap Infant Carry-on Policy

  • When traveling with a lap infant, you are allowed to bring 1 carrying basket, collapsible stroller, or car seat in addition to standard carry-on allowance. Infant necessity items such as food and feeding bottle can be brought on board to the maximum allowance of 11 pounds.

Stroller Gate Check Policy

  • Large strollers will be accepted as checked baggage only. For weight allowances, review the table below for checked baggage allowances as this depends on the destination.
