Every airline has its own baggage allowance. Typically, one bag plus carry-on luggage are free of charge. However, the rules of both carry on and check in luggage policy are specific for each airline. In order to get the information about your luggage fees you should contact your airline directly.
If you are flying a trip which includes several carriers, you need to check rules for each of them. Please note that the baggage fees are not included in the cost of your ticket and you have to pay for every additional item. Some carriers offer online check-in which can reduce your baggage costs.
The typical limit for checked bags is 23 kg for Economy class tickets and 32 kg for Business and First class passengers. The weight of carry-on bags must not exceed 10 kg. Additionally, there are also restrictions for overall dimensions of the baggage including height, length and width.
The maximum size totals 158 cm for checked bags and up to or 115 cm for carry-on bags. If the bags do not meet the airline’s baggage allowance the passenger will be charged for excess baggage. Please see the airline's website for more details on these limitations.
On domestic flights, many carriers will only allow carry-on luggage. On most airlines you will be allowed to bring one carry-on bag and one additional personal item such as a purse, briefcase or laptop. This limit can apply to travelers boarding all domestic and international flights. Sometimes passengers traveling overseas may be limited to only 1 carry-on bag. Check with the airline for the most up-to-date information. Any questions about sports equipment (bicycles, golf clubs, ski equipment etc.), dangerous goods (chemicals, firearms etc.) or any large items have to be discussed directly with the airline you are travelling with.
Other helpful information:
• It is highly important to label each piece of your luggage to avoid identification mistakes. Put the following data on each tag: passenger’s name, home address, cell phone number, work or home phone number. The label tags are usually available at a check-in desk and ticket counters. Make sure to put the same information on every bag, including a copy of your travel itinerary and an address and telephone number where you can be reached at your city of destination. • If the passenger is a member of one of the airline’s frequent flyer programs, he may be eligible for extra flight amenities. For example, some airlines don’t charge any additional fees for baggage or meals.
