I will be flying from New Delhi, India to San Fransisco, US on 10th September, 2017. For economic class, what is the charge for baggage exceeding 23kg? Also, what is the cost of an extra checked in baggage? For cabin baggage, can I bring one 8kg one and a bagpack?

Admin Reply :

2 bags of 23 kg each are allowed in check in baggage. If weight exceeds 23 kg but is less than 32 kg, then KRW 100,000/USD 100/ CAD 100 is the charge. And, if you are taking an extra baggage, then cost is just double of these prices, that is KRW 200,000/USD 200/CAD 200

I'm flying from Seoul to jeju on July 23. can I check in more than one piece of luggage ? Thanks

Admin Reply :

For domestic flights of Asiana, you are allowed 20 kg check in baggage free. However, if you are travelling on a codeshare flight of Asiana with Air Busan, this allowance is only 15 kg in check in baggage. Excess baggage will be charged at 2000 KRW per kg.
