Learn more about the new cabin baggage allowance to enjoy a smooth journey with AirAsia.
As the domestic tourism industry takes off, commercial flight operators are introducing irresistible deals to appeal to eager travellers, with many looking for a quick escape or to reunite with loved ones.
To meet these demands, AirAsia has ramped up its operations recently. Other than complying to the government’s advice, they have also introduced new policies which include cabin baggage allowance. Effective 7 July 2020, guests are allowed to carry two (2) pieces of cabin baggage not exceeding a total of 7kg in weight.
AirAsia passengers who wish to bring their bags on board must ensure that it meets the following requirements. They are allowed to carry one (1) cabin bag within the dimensions of 56cm (H) x 36cm (W) x 23cm (D) or maximum linear of 115cm. Make sure that the cabin bag is fit to be stowed in the overhead storage compartment in the aircraft cabin.
Passengers can also carry one (1) laptop bag or one (1) small bag with them, bearing in mind that the bags must not exceed the dimensions of 40cm (H) x 30cm (W) x 10cm (D) or maximum linear of 80cm. The laptop bags should fit under the seat in front of them. Passengers should also take note that multiple items that are strapped, wrapped or tied together will not be counted as one piece of cabin baggage.
If you are worried about going overboard with your bags, simply pre-book your checked baggage allowance prior to the flight. Travellers who require baggage purchases or upgrades can do so on airasia.com or the AirAsia mobile app up to four hours before departure time.
