Flexible baggage options

With World Traveller Plus' generous and flexible baggage allowances, it doesn't matter if you're travelling light or packing for an extended stay.

You can take two bags with you on board - one full-sized cabin bag plus a laptop or handbag – and check up to two bags into the hold - double the allowance for most economy services.

Some routes and ticket types come with an even greater allowance, while extra baggage can be carried for a fee.
