We updated our baggage policy on the 1st of July 2018. We reviewed our baggage allowance across our regional network. The new baggage structure will now be based on the total weight concept instead of the number of bags being checked-in. All checked in baggage should not exceed 32kg and all hand luggage should not exceed the maximum dimensions of 55cm x 40cm x 20cm (115cms).
