By Piece or by Weight?

Your checked-in baggage is counted by weight rather than by piece.  This means you can distribute the contents amongst different pieces of individual luggage as you see fit, provided you do not exceed the total weight permitted (see above). 

Be aware that some airlines have different checked-in baggage rules. You should contact your travel agency or speak directly with the airline in question if part of your travel itinerary involves another airline. 

If you’re in doubt, ask our airport staff who can advise you on the checked-in baggage regulations for a trip involving another airline. 

For those travelling in groups of two or more

Since not everyone needs to carry the same amount of luggage, you may share your baggage weight limit with your travel companions, allowing some to carry more than their individual weight limit, providing that the total weight of the group’s luggage does not exceed the total allowed for the group. You may avail yourself of this service only if you will be checking in together and are travelling on the same route to the same final destination.

Need to carry more baggage?

If you need to check in extra baggage over and above your free allowance, you can conveniently arrange this online. View the fees and buy excess baggage

If you try and check in baggage that exceeds the permitted weight, this is considered excess baggage and you will have the option to pay for the extra weight at the service desk.  

Remember, a single piece of checked-in baggage should never weigh more than 32 kg, whether or not the allowed excess baggage limit has been exceeded. All pieces of baggage in excess of 32 kg must be repacked in separate bags.

What Should I not Include in my Checked Baggage?

Due to international regulations, there are some restrictions on what you can pack in your checked-in baggage. A list of dangerous items is kept updated and can be viewed here.

Travelling to/from the USA

When you’re preparing your checked-in baggage for travel to the USA, remember to check the TSA (US Transportation Security Administration) restrictions on using locks. Certain items such as flammable material are also completely banned on flights to and from the USA, both in checked-in and hand baggage. For more information please visit the TSA website.
