From February 14th 2013, passengers flying Malaysia Airlines will enjoy an additional ten kilograms free baggage allowance in every class.
Economy Class passengers will receive 30 kilograms standard baggage allowance, Business Class guests will be entitled to 40 kilograms and those in First Class will have 50 kilograms.
Malaysia Airlines is also reducing its excess baggage charges for travel in all classes.
The new system will apply to all travel from February 14th, irrespective of tickets issued earlier reflecting the original lower free allowance.
The benefits will be introduced on all Malaysia Airlines’ flights involving the weight system concept for checked baggage, except for travel to and from Los Angeles where the charges are based on the piece system.
Malaysia Airlines area manager UK & Ireland Yuzrizal Mohd Yousuf commented: “The revised checked baggage policy is a great bonus for our UK and Irish passengers travelling from London Heathrow to Kuala Lumpur on our double daily A380 service and beyond to South East Asia and Australasia.
“We have also simplified the excess baggage rates to introduce a consistent policy for our passengers that delivers significant savings while they enjoy our premium service hospitality,” he added.
Charges for checked baggage weights in excess of the new free allowance will be calculated depending on zone of travel with a fixed rate applied for every five kilograms of excess baggage weight.
