Packing for your carry-on bag may seem simple enough – just throw in your clothes, shoes and other items higgledy-piggledy, and you’re good to go! But how can you maximize the limited space you have in your luggage, and organize your belongings more effectively? Take our tips:
Measure your bag
Make sure that your cabin bag falls within the carry-on dimensions specified by the airline. The maximum dimensions for Cebu Pacific are 56cm x 36cm x 23cm for Airbus flights; 56cm x 35cm x 20cm for ATR flights.
Check your liquids
Ensure that your liquids do not exceed 100ml, and are packed in a clear ziplock bag. Place them in the outer compartment of your carry-on, for easier removal during security screenings.
Roll your clothes
This saves space, and also ensures that your clothes remain wrinkle-free.
Organize your belongings into soft pouches, to make them easier to find. Cables and cords can go into sunglass cases.
Employ space-saving hacks
Stuff underwear, socks and other small items into shoes. Place belts inside the collars of formal shirts – this also helps to keep the collars stiff.
Wear your heaviest and bulkiest items
This ensures that you don’t have to squeeze them into your bag, freeing up space for other essentials.
