What Are the Baggage Restrictions for Hawaiian Airlines Flights?

Hawaiian Airlines allows one carry-on bag and one personal item per person to be brought into the cabin, and up to two checked bags at the regular baggage rate, as of 2015. The airline follows the Transportation Security Administration, or TSA, rules for transporting liquids and other restricted items.

First-class passengers may check the first two bags at no charge. Passengers traveling with children are given carry-on exemptions for items such as car seats, infant carrying seats and strollers. Any of these items may be checked at no charge. The exception is if passengers are traveling with an infant that does not have a separate seat.

Maximum dimensions for a carry-on bag are 22 inches long by 14 inches wide by 9 inches high. Maximum weight is 25 pounds. Carry-on bags must fit in overhead bins or under seats. The maximum dimensions for check-in bags may not exceed 62 linear inches. That is the total of any measurements of length plus width plus height of any bag. Maximum weight is 50 pounds per bag. Fees are charged for bags that exceed the size and weight restrictions.

Small dogs and cats are allowed to fly in the airline cabin for flights within the state of Hawaii. Animals from other destinations, including the U.S. mainland, must fly in the cargo hold due to the strict animal import and quarantine laws in Hawaii.
