Malaysia Airlines Baggage Allowance

(Updated 13-03-2018)

Checked Baggage

The checked baggage which can be carried on the Malaysia Airlines varied according to weight or number of pieces, sector of travel and class of cabin.

With effect from 1 May 2017, the policy of baggage allowances for Malaysia Airlines underwent a change. Malaysia Airlines has made a shift to the weight-based system of baggage allowance and this holds valid even for flights to/from USA or North America. It is now possible for passengers to carry unlimited number of pieces of baggage within the permitted weight allowance. This change in policy is for all tickets, even if issued before 1 May 2017. 

For domestic destinations, check-in baggage allowance is 20 kg per passenger for economy class bookings from 1 August 2018. Before this date, allowance will remain at 30 kg. 

For all international destinations, the maximum baggage weight to be carried is:

Cabin  Total Weight 
First Class 50 kg
Business Class 40 kg 
Economy Class  30 kg
 Infants 10 kg

Sum of dimensions of baggage shall not exceed 158 cm. Infants are allowed one baggage not exceeding 10 kgs and 115 cm in dimensions.

Additional allowance is also allowed for different level of Enrich membership card holders.

  • Enrich Silver- 5 kg excess baggage
  • Enrich Gold- 50% more baggage allowance
  • Enrich Platinum- 100% more baggage allowance

Weight Restriction is strictly followed on all Malaysia Airline flights. No single baggage is allowed to be exceeding 32 kg in weight. This is applicable even for transit baggage and musical/sporting equipment if it exceeds 32 kg. For the latter, you will have to take it through the cargo route.

I have two tickets from Phuket to Auckland connecting in Kuala Lumpur. My wife and I have three bags to check (26kg, 10kg, &10kg). Looking on Malaysia Air's site it lists the per-kg-charge for excess baggage fees, but also says: For Economy Class, baggage weighing over 50 lb/23 kg and up to 70 lb/32 kg, passengers will be charged $25 per piece for the first 2 pieces. So, one of us will check the 26kg bag and the other check the two 10kg bags we have. Will we be charged for the 26kg bag or not? Will we be charged for any reason relating to our checked baggage?

Admin Reply :

In economy class travel, 30 kg is free check in baggage allowance per person and there is no limit on number of bags to be carried. We believe that you might not have checked the airline website as the allowance for baggage is not dependent on the number of bags being carried. In your case, there is no problem with the way you are taking the three bags and there will not be any charge for 26 kg bag.

Hi ! Just wondering I got Economy class .I made one pc 31.5 kg check-in ,1 Hand carry suitcase 7 kg, 1 handbag (purse) 2.5 kgs .Is that ok .Or do you count hand carry suitcase and handbag together 7 kgs

Admin Reply :

If you are carrying more than permitted allowance for your ticket in check in baggage, you will have to pay excess baggage charges. Therefore, if the check in baggage allowance is 30 kg and you are taking 31.5 kg, you will have to pay excess baggage fee. Hand carry luggage is okay. Personal item can be taken in addition to cabin baggage allowance.

You will have to pay for surfboard only if it  exceed the weight of your check in baggage allowance. Surfboards are allowed as a part of the check in luggage. However, there is a restriction on the size of the surfboards to be carried. You can bring only up to 2.5 meters length surfboards in check-in. If you have longer ones, these would have to be sent through cargo. If the total weight of the check-in luggage exceeds free allowance, excess baggage charges will apply.

Sum of dimensions matters. IT shall be within the permitted allowance. Secondly, even while weight and size are within the permitted allowance limits, the airline officials can refuse carriage on certain ground, these being odd-sized being one of these. So, do seek approval from local airline office for this purpose.

Hello, We are travelling with Etihad from Geneva to KL economy with a baggage allowance of 23kg, we then have a connecting domestic flight to Kuching. For the return flight we have a domestic flight from Sandakan to KL and then an international flight two days later to Geneva with Etihad. What is the overall baggage allowance? Should we only allow 20kg per baggage as we have domestic flights?

Admin Reply :

A number of factors have to be considered. For ex: whether the whole travel is on same pnr or different tickets have been bought? Whether there is  a stopover at intermediary location or not? And, whether there is any codeshare or interline agreement between the two airlines, etc.? So, we would suggest that you check with the Etihad airline local office on what allowance would be for the next leg as well.

In your reply to Chris Villareal today, you replied that his check-in allowance was 30Kg and it can be in 2 check-in bags. However, in your reply to Khoo, you stated that there is no limit to the number of check in bags so long as total weight will not exceed combined allowance. These 2 replies are in conflict, so which is correct ? Also, can the check-in piece be a well wrapped/packed cardboard box ? Thank you

Admin Reply :

No, these are not in conflict. In reply to Chris Villarea, the question asked was whether check in bag can be 20/20. This meant whether 2 bags of 20 kg each could be taken. To this we replied that allowance is a max of 30 kg and if you want to take it in 2 bags, you can take. 

In reply to Khoo, the position is same. Malaysia Airlines is passing through a crucial phase and the airline has adopted a policy of not restricting the number of check-in bags within a given weight limit and size limit. 

Cardboard boxes are allowed as check-in bag.

My husband and I are travelling business class from London to Sydney via KL for our sons wedding. We only want to take hand luggage, which will include 2 suit/dress covers, hat box, handbag and 2 carry ons! Will this be ok and is it still 7kg for each bag or .........? Many thanks.

Admin Reply :

Along with the cabin baggage, only one person item is allowed. It would be good if you could make one check in baggage when some free allowance is there to avail of.

Hello. I am going to Melbourne as a student. I guess i am allowed 30 kgs + 7 kgs (cabin bag). Can i split it up as 20kgs and 17kgs? My flight is from BOM-KUL-MEL. And what about the laptop bag?

While it is right that your allowance is 30 kg check in, it can not be clubbed with the cabin baggage. So, 7 kg has to be separate and taken in hand into the cabin. You can take check in baggage into 2 bags.

Admin Reply :

Are you travelling only one airline- Malaysia Airlines on both legs of your journey? if yes, check in allowance would be 30 kg per person for economy class, 40 kg for Business Class and 50 kg for First Class travellers. So, for economy, total allowance will be 60 kg for both of you. You are allowed to carry it in 3 bags instead of 2 but any one bag shall not weigh more than 32 kgs.
