Excess carry-on baggage fee now applied at the boarding gate on international flights.

  • Other international routes: USD 85


Travel Agencies must inform customers of excess carry-on baggage charges at the time of providing the information about baggage allowances.


Passengers who do not have any of the accepted forms of payment with them at the gate will be directed to the check-in area to have their bag checked and paid for using other means of payment and boarded as Stand-by on the next available flight.


Passengers refusing to pay the excess carry-on fee will not be allowed to carry their bag on the flight. LATAM does not offer baggage storage or custody services.


The following passengers are not subject to excess carry-on fees:
