Anyone know the Jetstar checked baggage allowance??

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Me again!!!, another flight related query!!

 

Ive been looking on Jetstars website for the baggage allowance for internal flights, as we are flying from Sydney to Cairns. I think the max is 20 kilos and you can add on the excess on your booking, it might be me but it all doesnt seem this clear on their website though?!!. Trying to find out as we are taking our maximum with Sigapore airlines...the whole 32 Kilos and want to take this with us!

 

I dont want to pay the excess charge which is something like $100 each!!!.

 

Can anyone help me??!! :chatterbox:

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the limit on singapore if you're flying economy is 23kg.

 

The 32kg is an international health and safety limit on a single item as the baggage handlers are legally not allowed to lift anything heavier than that. This would come into play if for example two travellers merged their luggage allowance, they'd have a total of 46kg, but this would have to be split between two bags.

 

If you're over the 23kg, best bet is probably to get another bag shipped by a company that specialises in excess baggage, as the singapore excess fees are horrendous.

 

Jetstar allowance depends on which fare you've booked. The $80 fee is if you've booked a fare with no allowance but turned up at the airport and want to check bags in. Excess baggage for domestic flights is $15 per kg. At the airport - Travel information - Jetstar Airways

Sorry I got confused with BA. The limit for singapore airlines is 20kg, not 23kg.
