Baggage regulations for trips originating in Brazil
For tickets whose itinerary originates in Brazil (for both the outbound and inbound journeys), the Civil Aviation Authority Agency (ANAC) determines that for each adult passenger, the free baggage allowance consists of 2 pieces* of max. weight of 32kgs (70 lbs) each. The sum of the 3 dimensions of each piece cannot exceed 158 cm (62 in.) and the sum of the dimensions of both pieces cannot exceed 273 cm (107 in.).
Children (2 to 12 years old) are allowed the same allowance as adult passengers. For babies (younger than 2 years), baggage allowance is limited to one piece not exceeding 10kg, and the sum of its dimensions not exceeding 115 cm (45 in.).
