WestJet is making changes to reduce what its passengers can bring aboard flights.
After April 4, travellers will only be allowed one piece of carry-on luggage and one personal item.
The airline had previously allowed passengers to bring two carry-on items and a personal item.
Carry-on luggage includes items such as suitcases, backpacks or bags and must fit a specific sizing device.
Personal items include smaller things such as small purses, laptop bags or child restraint devices. For parents travelling with infants a diaper bag is also permitted over and above the carry-on allowance.
Items that don't fit the size requirements will have to be checked at the baggage counter before departure and picked up at a carousel after landing.
