How to measure trolly bag size: Included Airline Guideline 

Here’s a detailed explanation of each measurement for luggage bag size: 

Length Measurement:

A trolley bag’s length is measured from top to bottom, including the wheels and handles. Place the bag on a flat surface and extend it to its full length. Put a measuring tape on the top of the bag near the handle and measure from there. Measure straight down the bottom of the bag, ensuring the measuring tape follows the contour. Decide whether you want to measure in inches or centimeters. A bag’s length gives you an idea of how big it is and whether it meets airlines’ size requirements.

Width Measurement:

A trolley bag’s width is measured from one side to the other. The bag’s width determines whether it fits in overhead compartments or under the seat. Put the bag upright and on a flat surface to measure its width. Using the measuring tape, extend it from one side of the bag to the other. When measuring the bag, include any external pockets or bulges. Again, record the measurement in inches or centimeters for reference.

Depth Measurement: 

Trolley bag depth is measured from front to back. Measurements help determine a bag’s thickness and depth and whether it complies with airline regulations. Place the bag on its side so that you can see both front and back. To measure the bag, place the measuring tape at the front and extend it straight back. To determine if the bag meets the required depth limits, measure it in inches or centimeters.
