Checked baggage charges at the airport
If you haven't added any checked baggage to your booking, and you arrive at the airport with checked baggage, charges will apply:
- There is a charge for up to 15kg of baggage allowance per passenger.
- After that, there is a per-kilo charge for every additional kilo.
If you have added checked baggage to your booking but arrive with more than your allowance, you'll be charged for excess baggage at the per-kilo rate.
If you have connecting flights with a domestic and international leg, you’ll be charged at the international per-kilo rate for the whole journey.
To avoid these charges, make sure you’re aware of the limits for carry-on and checked baggage. And remember, it's best to add checked baggage to your booking before you fly.
For up to 15kg of checked baggage you’ll be charged:
