EVA Air has a fairly generous baggage allowance, but don’t get caught out on overweight checked baggage — this is charged by piece for flights to/from the U.S., 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 premium economy and economy class passengers
2 standard carry-on bags: Free for Royal Laurel, Premium Laurel, and business class passengers

Size Restrictions

  • Personal: 16 x 12 x 4 inches (40 x 30 x 10 cm)
  • Standard: 22 x 14 x 9 inches (56 x 36 x 23 cm,) maximum weight 15 pounds (7 kg)

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 the standard carry-on allowance. Infant necessity items such as food and feeding bottles can be brought on board to the maximum allowance of 11 pounds (5 kg).

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.
