This information provides a guide for passengers on flights operated by member airlines of IATA and most other international carriers

It is important to note that some airlines may deviate significantly from these quoted standard allowances and excess baggage charges, either throughout their domestic/international network or on specific routes only. Therefore, to avoid unexpected charges, it is essential to check with the airline, or the travel agent, before travelling. The Free Baggage Allowance comprises two elements as shown.


Checked baggage
This is baggage, up to a specified limit, to be carried in the hold of the aircraft

There are two systems determining the amount of checked baggage allowed

  • the weight system is based on the total weight of baggage, no matter how many different pieces there are
  • the piece system is based on the number of pieces of baggage
Subject to space availability, airlines will carry amounts of baggage in excess of the free allowance at an excess baggage charge. Passengers travelling together to the same destination by the same flight may, if they check-in together, pool their free baggage allowances, perhaps avoiding excess baggage charges
Weight system
This system is used in all areas except where the 'piece' system is used

Free baggage allowance

The normal free baggage allowance is:

  • First Class 40 kg (88lb)
  • Business Class 30 kg (66lb)
  • Economy Class 20 kg (44lb)
Note: These are the normal allowances. Some carriers may have differing allowances, particularly on domestic routes. Please confirm with carriers

Children are entitled to the same free baggage allowance as adult passengers.

 Infants not entitled to a seat are only allowed one fully collapsible stroller or pushchair

An excess baggage charge is levied on baggage in excess of the free allowance. The charge is 1.5% of the highest normal direct adult one way economy class (in local currency) for each kilogram in excess of the free allowance

Exceptions:

  • 1% from Austria, Bulgaria, Israel; from Australia, New Zealand (except 1.5% from Australia, New Zealand to South West Pacific); from Europe, Middle East to Australia, New Zealand
  • 1.35% within Europe (except 1% from Austria, Bulgaria, Finland)
Special charges Special charges apply for the carriage of:
  • Bulky or fragile items up to 75 kg (165 lb) as hand baggage warranting the use of one or more additional seats. Normal excess charges apply for the weight carried but will be not less than 75% of the full one-way adult fare for the class used by the passenger
  • accompanied pets. Normal excess charges apply but the weight of animal and container cannot be allowed in the passenger's free allowance
  • snow skiing equipment and golfing equipment. Special excess baggage charges apply for these items. The weight of these items can be included in the passenger's normal free allowance and only the overweight is charged at the special rate

Piece system
Free baggage allowance

The normal free baggage allowance is:

First & business class passengers
2 bags (pieces) where the total of the three dimensions does not exceed 158 cm (62 inches) for each bag

Economy class passengers
2 bags (pieces) where the total of the three dimensions for any one bag does not exceed 158 cm (62 inches) and where the total for both bags does not exceed 273 cm (107 inches)

Maximum weight of any one bag is 32 kg (70 lb) except within North America where it is 23 kg (50 lb). (Note: domestic airlines within USA may apply a free baggage allowance based on a weight or piece system)

Children are entitled to the same free baggage allowance as adult passengers. Infants not entitled to a seat are allowed one checked bag of which the total of the three dimensions should not exceed 115 cm (45 inches) plus one fully collapsible stroller or pushchair

Articles considered as a single piece of baggage

The following articles, irrespective of their actual dimensions, may be considered as a piece of baggage at 135 cm (53 inches):

  • one sleeping bag or bedroll
  • one rucksack/knapsack/backpack
  • one pair of snow skis with one pair of ski poles and one pair of ski boots
  • one golf bag, golf clubs and pair of golf shoes
  • one duffle-type bag or B-4 type bag
  • one suitably packed bicycle
  • one pair of standard water skis or one slalom water ski
  • suitably packed fishing equipment comprising not more than two rods, one reel, one landing net, one pair of fishing boots and one fishing tackle box
  • certain sporting firearms (subject to each airlines conditions of carriage)
  • any portable musical instrument not exceeding 100 cm (39 inches) in length
Excess baggage charge

The excess baggage charge levied on baggage in excess of the free allowance is determined by a number of factors: the city or country of departure; city or country of arrival; and, in a number of instances, by the airline of travel. Each combination of factors has a standard excess baggage fee

Each bag in excess of the number permitted which does not exceed the dimensions/weight limits is charged at the standard fee

If within the baggage allowance a bag exceeds the dimensions limit for free carriage but does not exceed 203 cm (80 inches) and is within the weight limit, the standard fee is still applied. However, any bag both in excess of the number and dimensions, but where the sum of the three dimensions does not exceed 203 cm (80 inches) and is within the weight limit, twice the standard fee is charged

Any piece of baggage in excess of 203 cm (80 inches) or in excess of the 32 kg (70 lb) or, within North America 23 kg (50 lb), weight limit will not be carried unless prior handling arrangements are made with the airline. If accepted for carriage, such bags are weighed and charged at three times the standard fee for any amount up to 45 kg (99 lb) and at the standard fee for each additional 10 kg (22 lb) or fraction thereof

Special charges

Special charges apply for the carriage of:

  • bulky or fragile items as hand baggage warranting the use of one or more additional seats. To/from the USA the normal piece system excess charges apply but the minimum charge will be 75% of the full one-way adult fare for the class used by the passenger. Elsewhere, a standard excess charge of 75% of the full one-way adult fare for the class used by the passenger applies
  • accompanied pets. The animal and container cannot be allowed in the passenger's free allowance. To/from USA the normal excess baggage fee is charged. Elsewhere, the charge is twice the standard fee
  • snow skiing and golf equipment. If in excess of the normal free allowance, one set of skis/ski poles/ski boots will be carried at 25% of the standard excess baggage fee and one golf bag/golf shoes at 50% of the standard fee. Additional sets are charged at the full standard fee
Where the piece system applies
  • between USA/US Territories and all countries
  • between Canada and Europe, Middle East, Southern Africa, South Asian Subcontinent, the Far East except Guam and South West Pacific, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay
  • between the Far East and Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Mexico, USA
  • between Guam/Saipan and Japan, Okinawa, Hong Kong, Korea Republic, China, Taiwan, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, India.
  • between Pago Pago and South West Pacific
Note: Some governments have not approved the Ã????piece' system. The free baggage allowance from such countries to USA/Canada is therefore based on the weight system
Carry-on items

These are smaller items that passengers can take with them onto the aircraft

Carry-on items defined

In addition to the checked baggage allowances, each passenger may carry, without additional charge, hand baggage suitable for placing in closed overhead rack, or under the passenger's seat. The maximum dimensions (the sum of the three dimensions of all such carry on items) shall not exceed 45 inches (115 cm)
