AirAsia is the low cost carrier of Malaysia. Its policies on baggage allowance are dependent on domestic and international flight routes and fare choices booked.
As a general rule, AirAsia does not provide free check-in baggage allowance. However, due to country specific regulations, it might be obliged to provide free allowances. Example is the case of India operations wherein it provides 15 kg free check-in baggage allowance for domestic flights. Further, if there are connections on your itinerary, the charge applicable for baggage will be calculated per sector. So, if there are two or more connections, fees of each of these sectors is to be added to arrive at total price. You can ask for these allowances and fees for any baggage in comments section below.
If passengers have booked Value Pack, Premium Flex or Premium Flatbed fare choice tickets, then the baggage allowance is reflected in the tickets.
There is also a provision of opting for prices of pre-booked luggage. Savings can be as much as 50% of baggage costs if you upsize or supersize your luggage at least 4 hours before departure of flight. Upsizing baggage means pre-buying 5 kgs or in multiples thereof and Supersizing means buying 40 kgs of baggage in advance.
If two or more people are traveling together on same itinerary and check in together, then the allowance can be shared. However, there is a restriction on the size and weight of each bag. Each bag must not weigh more than 32 kgs and it shall not be more than 81 cm height, 119 cm width and 119 cm in depth.
