Singapore airlines provides piece-based baggage allowance only for the US/Canda based flights. For rest of world, it is 30 kg check in for economy class travellers. We are not aware of any special allowances for seamen.

I am travelling to Adelaide via Singapore after availing transit visa of three days in Singapore and boarding again the Singapore airlines flight on 4 the day for onward journey.Can my check in baggage be sent to Adelaide without collecting it at Singapore airport

Admin Reply :

You will have to check in again at Singapore. Only when the time gap is 24 hours that the baggage can be sent directly to the destination place. In your case, it is 3 days, hence you will have to check in again at Singapore.
