Hand baggage


For safety and convenience, each passenger (including infants) is allowed one single item of hand baggage that may not exceed 10 kg (5 kg for infants) in weight and dimensions may not exceed 55cm x 40cm x 20cm. Briefcases, ladies’ purses, laptops, cameras etc. must be carried within your single piece of hand luggage. These dimensions include wheels, handles, side pockets, etc.

The hand baggage will be carried by you in the passenger cabin and must be placed under the seat in front of you or in the baggage overhead compartment.
We recommend you to carry in your cabin baggage all your documents and valuable items (for instance, passport and any other means of identification, visa, international vaccination passport, international health insurance certificates, travel documents, securities, negotiable papers, electronic equipment, money and credit cards, jewelry, medication).


delivery_baggage_OKThis service is only available to passengers who have booked Economy Premium Class (YHB) tickets.
If your hand baggage is oversize / over weighed (can be even a pushchair/ stroller/ wheelchair) but you do not wish it to be checked, the check-in agent will attach a special label marked “Delivery at Aircraft” (DAA) to your baggage.
This type of baggage must not weigh more than 8 kg. Upon boarding, you will hand your baggage over to the handling agent and it will be handed back to you at the aircraft stairs upon disembarkation.
This procedure can also be used if you have a very short connection time.


For landing in Rome-Fiumicino Airport, the baggage follows the normal flow. For more information, please contact Moldavian Airlines Call Center.
