European regional airline Flybe has increased its hand baggage dimensions to 22x16x9in (55x40x23cm), equating to a 20% increase in volume over the previous limit.
The carrier has stated that it hopes the increase “is a tangible measure of [its] ongoing commitment to ‘making flying better’.”
Director of Marketing Simon Lilley commented:  “We know that a lot of our passengers fly day returns or just stay overnight.  They enjoy the convenience of hassle-free regional airports and this change will make travelling with hand baggage even easier.”
