Publish Time: 2023-11-30

When traveling by air, it's important to understand aircraft luggage weight limits and related considerations. Different airlines have different regulations on the weight, size and quantity of luggage, and passengers need to comply with these regulations to ensure that their luggage can be checked or carried on smoothly. In this article, we will focus on the weight limits and precautions for aircraft luggage to help you prepare and carry your luggage appropriately.

1. Baggage weight limit:

Most airlines have clear rules regarding the weight of checked and carry-on luggage. Generally speaking, the standard weight limit for checked baggage is between 20 kilograms and 30 kilograms. The specific limit value will vary according to the class of cabin, route and ticket type. The weight limit for carry-on baggage is generally between 5kg and 10kg, and size limits are usually specified to ensure that it can be successfully placed in the luggage compartment in the aircraft cabin or under the seat.

2. Excess baggage charges:

 If the baggage you carry exceeds the airline's weight limit, you will most likely have to pay additional excess baggage fees. These fees are often calculated based on the excess weight and flight distance. Some airlines also set different excess baggage fee standards for passengers of different cabin classes. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to airline regulations when carrying luggage to avoid incurring additional charges for excess baggage.

3. Things to note:

Understand the airline's baggage policy in advance, including weight, size, quantity restrictions for checked baggage and carry-on baggage, as well as excess baggage charges.

Try to reduce excess items when carrying luggage to avoid extra charges for overweight luggage, while also making it easier for you to carry and use.

 Label the luggage with personal information such as your name and contact information, and place a luggage tag inside the luggage to facilitate tracking and claiming if the luggage is lost.

Place some basic daily necessities and clothing in your checked baggage in case of emergency.
