New restrictions on carry-on luggage by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) came into force at Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) on Sept 1.
According to the new rules, carry-on luggage exceeding 115cm in combined length, width and height will be prohibited from being carried on board. Bags that do not meet the size and weight restrictions now need to be checked in.
PVG has added bulletin boards in the Domestic and International/Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan departure areas in its two terminals to notify passengers about the new regulations. The airport also arranged staff to help check passengers’ bags in at the entrance areas of the terminals.
PVG would like to remind passengers to check in their luggage as early as possible, in order to avoid unnecessary delays.
