Qatar Airways Baggage Allowance

Ask Your Question

Cabin/Hand/Carry-on Luggage

Hand luggage on Qatar Airways has restrictions of number and total weight depending on the class of travel of the passenger. First Class, Business Class and Economy Class travellers have respective restrictions of carrying 2 pcs (total weight up to 15 kg), 2 pcs (total weight up to 15 kg) and 1 pcs (total weight up to 7 kg).

For all cabin or hand baggage, the dimension restrictions are same: 50, 37, 25 cms for each pcs of luggage.

Besides the above mentioned allowance, passengers are also allowed to carry personal items such as ladies handbags, coat, blanket, small briefcase, walking stick or crutches, duty free items, infant basket and camera or binoculars. Laptop is a part of the cabin baggage. It is not allowed in separate bag and shal be within the permitted allowance.

It is important to note that the laptops or the laptop bags are considered a part of the hand baggage and not a personal item and therefore, its weight is counted towards the free allowance.

All electronic devices to be carried on board must be fully charged and functioning in order to establish that these are genuine.

Checked Luggage

Checked baggage allowance of Qatar airways varies from route to route and also depends on cabin class booked by the passenger.

For Qatar Airways flights to/from Brazil, all classes of passengers are allowed 2 pieces of luggage with each not exceeding 32 kgs weight and of a maximum sum of dimensions of 158 cms.

For Qatar Airways flights between Brazil and Argentina, all classes of passengers are allowed to carry free allowance of 2 pcs with each piece not exceeding 23 kgs of weight and maximum sum of dimensions of luggage being 158 cms.

The Economy class travelers on these routes are allowed to carry 2 pcs of 23 kgs each with sum of dimensions of each baggage being 158 cms.

Flights of Qatar Airways to/from all other destinations, First Class passengers are allowed a total weight allowance of 50 kgs, Business Class 40 kgs and Economy Class 30 kgs, with all classes of travel being allowed maximum dimension of 300 cms.

LED TV of check in baggage size (158 cm for transatlantic flights and 300 cm for other flights) and weight is allowed free.

Baggage allowance for the Codeshare and the Interline Agreement Carriers

Codeshare and interline agreements are quite common in aviation industry. However, whenever there is flight involving the codeshare or interline partners, there is always a confusion as to which airlines’ baggage allowance would be applicable. In case of Qatar Airways, this is determined going with the Most Significant Carrier rule of IATA except for flights to/from/through USA and Canada. As per the MSC rule of IATA, the MSC is the one which is the first carrier to fly between two IATA areas or its sub areas or the first to cross the international border. (Check out the various areas in which IATA divides the world).

Excess Baggage Charges

Excess baggage can be bought online, at its offices or counters and even at the time of check in at the airport. Charges depend on two factors:

  1. Whether you have made online booking on its website or through its call centre /counters /office /check in desk.

  2. Sector of travel

It is charged on per kg basis except to/from Americas where it is based on per piece. Check out this post for excess baggage charges of Qatar Airways.

Bulk Baggage ChargesExcess baggage allowance for Silver, Gold and Platinum members are 10 kg, 15 kgs or 1 piece and 20 kgs or 1 piece respectively.

Bulk baggage charges are applicable when traveling to destinations in Africa from select cities in China, UAE, Oman, South Korea, Japan, Australia, Europe and India. These charges are applicable when there is a need to carry additional baggage from/to Africa (more than free allowance). Though the rates are based on per kg of weight, a minimum of 5 kgs of additional baggage must be bought. From select cities in abovementioned countries except China and UAE to destinations in Africa, rates are 10 USD per kg (for Lagos, rate is USD 200/piece of maximum weight 32 kgs). From China, Hong Kong and UAE rates are:

Bulk baggage rate per additional kg

Hi, plz share the info on the following questions: I am travelling to Helsinki from Bangalore on 6th April 2017 with a stop at Doha. Mine is economy class. My Baggage allowance mentioned in the ticket is 45kgs. 1. 45kg includes check-in and cabin bag? 2. Can we split the baggage? 3. What is the maximum weight and dimension for 1 bag?(plz mention separately for both check-in and cabin bag) 4. Can we utilize completely 45 kgs? Because I saw your previous replies regarding baggage, wherein you have answered 30kg check-in and 7kg cabin though the baggage allowance is 40kg.

Admin Reply :

If your travel in on Qatar airways only, then the allowance is of 30 kg check in and 7 kg cabin. We do not think this is 45 kg in check in baggage. Please reconfirm with the airline local office as well. Sum of dimensions of the check in bag shall be 158 cm and for cabin it is  50x37x25cm

Dear admin, We'll be travelling from Doha to manila via Qatar Airways with total of 150kgs of allowable luggage for 3 person. We divided the 150kgs in 10 baggages, will the airlines allow us to carry as many as these baggages for check in? Looking forward for your advise.. Thank u very much & more power!

Admin Reply :

150 kg for 3 persons means a 50 kg per person whereas free allowance is 90 kg in total. So, excess charges will have to be paid. Now, w.r.t. to the number of check in bags permitted, we would suggest that you speak to airline.

Hi! I am from dubai and traveling this february to clark Philippines. I am planning to bring home my used tv which is 47 inches. I would like to ask if i can bring it along with me and do i still need to provide any documents like receipt for purchasing, warranty etc. Also, is the max baggage allowance for economy tickets really 30 kgs? I heard that they are not rhat strict with the baggage allowance. Thank you

Admin Reply :

There is no need for providing the documents of TV. The allowance is 30 kg. IT can be carried if the box dimensions are within the permitted dimension limits of the baggage. The airlines are very strict with the baggage allowance since it is an opportunity for them to earn more by putting extra baggage charges.

I was planning to have a vacation to the philippines on november 6, 2016 by qatar airlines a direct flight economy class, i want to know if i was able to take a check in baggage of 2 bags weighing 25kls. Each w/o any excess baggage fee?

Admin Reply :

Which place are you travelling from? Are you sure that the baggage allowance is 2 bags of 23 kg? If yes, if the weight of each bag is increased to 25 kg in place of 23 kg then it will entail payment of extra charges for two bags. So, if extra weight has to be carried, it is suggested that the one bag shall have all 4 kg excess so that you pay for only 1 bag excess weight.

hi, i'm flying from doha to heathrow and then to JFK via qatar airways on economy class. My baggage weighs 42 kg. Do I break up my baggage so that it doesn't weigh more than 32 kg? Or can I instead opt to simply pay the excess baggage charge?

Admin Reply :

yes, it shall be less than 32 kg. You are mixing two points. One is related to baggage allowance, which is what the airline allows you. It is 2 bags of 23 kg each for economy class travellers to US. The other point is related to maximum weight which can be taken in one check in bag. This is 32 kg. So, if you are taking more than 23 kg but up to 32 kg in checkin bag, you will have to pay excess baggage charge. More than 32 kg is not allowed in one check in bag. Therefore, you will have to take another one.

I am travelling from Milwaukee to Bangalore. Flight starts from Milwaukee (American Airlines) to Chicago. In Chicago I need to board Qatar airways to Doha and from Doha I need to take next flight to Bangalore. PNR is provided by Qatar airways and they code share with American airlines. Both American airlines and Qatar airways have different baggage charges. Which policy is applicable for me? Please advice. Also I am planning to carry 40 inch Tv and with package size will be (43.5 x 24.4 x 6.5) around 75 inch. Will it be considered as oversize baggage or will they allow as normal luggage? Weight will be around 16 kg.

Since the first airline to carry you would be American, its allowance would be applicable on Qatar subsequent flight as well. 75 inches would be oversized since AA would allow baggage of up to 158 cm or 60 inches.

I will be traveling Economy Class from Bangalore to Oslo, via Doha and London (the last segment being on Scandinavian airlines). My ticket has single PNR upto OSL, and the baggage allowance mentioned on ticket is 45 kg + 7 kg for all segments. QA office also told me that it is 45 kg checked in baggage. 1. Can I take 3 pieces of checked baggage within the 45kg allowance? 2. As my ticket is single PNR, can I get my baggage through-checked-in to Oslo? 3. Will I face any problem on LHR-OSL flight (Scandinavian air) for 3 pieces checked baggage? Thanks in advance for your reply.

Admin Reply :

Travel allowance of Qatar Airways would be applicable on Scandinavian as well if it is a codeshare flight. Though, through check-in shall be provided, it is better to ask Qatar Airways for through check-in. If there are any restrictions, these would be known at the time of checking in.

Since allowance is based on weight system for whole journey, carrying 3 check-in bags within permissible allowance shall not be a problem. 

We would still ask you to contact the Qatar Airways for knowing correct baggage allowance. As per our understanding it is 30 kg for economy class travel.

Would like to ask few questions please. My flight will be tomorrow, flying from Rome to Jakarta, I'm traveling with my photo equipment weighing 11 kg (4 kg over) for hand carry and a medium back pack, I have 40kg allowance and my two check in luggage weigh 19kg each. Last September they didn't charge me for my 12 kg camera bag when I told them it isworking equipments. ( I know sometimes it depend on your check in personnel but I've never fly out from Rome so I'm not sure if it would be the same.) How flexible Qatar airways with hand carry? Should I buy excess baggage fee online?and can the weight allowance (purchased online) be shared between check in and hand carry? Thank you kindly.

Admin Reply :

If they allowed you to carry 12 kg camera bag last time, this is possible because airlines allow small camera to be carried as a personal item along with the cabin bag. If they allowed you last time, why to buy excess baggage online now? If needed you can buy it during check-in. Weight allowance is bought for check-in. If they do not allow carriage of excess 4 kg in cabin, you might have to transfer the camera to check in and then buy excess charge for it.

All flights to/from US allow 2 bags of 23 kg each. However, it is also mentioned with Qatar airways that the total weight allowed for economy class travellers on flights from Africa is max 45 kg. Thus, you can divide it into 2 bags of 23 and 22 kgs each.

Baby strollers and bassinets are offered but it would be good if you could connect with the airline to know whether this is provided at your point of departure.

Is it possible to take 2 checked items on an international flight from India (Delhi) to England (London) via Qatar? The info is a bit ambiguous.

Admin Reply :

In general, the number of pcs concept applies on flights to/from USA, Canada and countries of South America. This concept does not apply on flights to/from other destinations where the weight concept applies. So, on flights from India to England, Qatar airways allows you to carry free check in baggage which is based on total weight of the check in baggage. So, you can carry 2 bags of check in baggage without paying extra charges if these fall within the total weight limits. Further, there are dimension restrictions for each baggage. Free check in allowance is 50, 40 and 30 kgs respectively for First, Business and Economy class travellers with additional condition that each bag shall not weigh more than 32 kgs (for sake of easy handling) and dimensions shall not exceed 300 cms.
