Please i need a help: i am travelling with my wife from Izmir to Tunisia but we have i different tickets. I have 30kg of luggage and she have 40kg?? we got confusion on how we share those KGs?? how much Kg for each bag??

Admin Reply :

For international flights, the free check in baggage allowance is of 20kg per person for economy class travellers. Cabin baggage allowance is 1 cabin bag of 8 kg. So, for the rest, the excess baggage fee is to be paid.

Check in baggage of 40 kg needs to be divided into two bags as one check in bag can not be more than 32 kg weight.

hi, I'm flying from Beijing China to Tirana Albania(one stop Istambul). My ticket says I have a 40kg allowence. I want to take a check inluggage , carry on(cabin ) and a small backpack (personal bag). Is that possible and how many kg per each is allowed? also if my luggage is in excess where and how do I pay for the exess? confused..Tanks in advance

Admin Reply :

Taking a cabin bag along with a backpack would be counted as two cabin baggage items which might not be allowed by the airline. 

Cabin baggage shall not be more than 8 kg. A single check in bag shall not be more than 32 kg in weight. So, if you are allowed 40 kg, then it has to be in 2 check in bags.

Excess luggage can be bought at the airport.
