Tigerair Baggage Allowance

Tigerair is the airline of Singapore. There are three different conditions of carriage for respective subsidiaries of the carrier for three countries-Singapore, Australia and Taiwan. On this page, the rules of baggage allowance pertaining to TR flights operated by Tigerair Singapore have been outlined. Along with these, rules pertaining to the TT flights of Tigerair Australia and IT flights of Tigerair Taiwan have also been mentioned.

Cabin or Hand Luggage Allowance

2 pieces of carry-on luggage of total maximum weight 10 kg and each having dimensions of 54, 38 and 23 cms are allowed on Tigerair Singapore and Tigerair Taiwan flights. Tigerair Australia passengers are now allowed same carry-on allowance after travel date of 17 April 2015.

Check-in Luggage Allowance

Check in baggage rules of Tigerair are a little different from the other airlines. There are no prescribed free allowance rules which specify a particular number of bags, weight or dimension restrictions w.r.t. check in luggage. Rather, the carrier provides a hand-baggage only fare to the passengers and gives them the option of Luggage Upsize at the time of making the booking. However, each check in bag shall not weigh more than 30 kgs.

Luggage upsizing can be done for one-way flights by paying fees and at the time of making reservations. This facility is available per passenger. If this facility is needed for the return flights as well, then flight sectors have to be booked separately.

If passengers fail to avail this at the time of booking, the same can also be done by calling call centre up to 4 hours before flight departure or even at the airport. However, the upsizing can be done only for a 15 kg weight at the airport by paying SGD 50 as fee. If there is a need to bring more than 15 kg baggage using airport upsizing facility, excess baggage charges will apply. These excess charges are SGD 25 per kg for ex-Singapore flights. For other countries, local currency rates would apply.

Tigerair Australia passengers can buy 15 kg slab at airport for AUD 75 for short haul flights and AUD 90 for long haul flights. Excess baggage per kg is charged fee at AUD 20 per kg for short haul flights and AUD 25 per kg for long haul flights. Short haul flights are of less than 1 hr 45 min duration and long haul flights are of more than this duration. The international short haul flights of the carrier charge passenger AUD 100 for 15 kg check in baggage at airport and AUD 30 per excess kg. If passengers seeking to travel on international flights from Australia, book tickets at airport, then a fee of AUD 30 per passenger is charged by the airline at airport.

Sporting equipments have to be carried in the check in luggage. Luggage Upsizing fee is not applicable to their carriage. These entail charges separately.

Musical instruments are classified into small, medium and large ones for the purpose of their carriage in Tigerair Singapore. Small instruments of 105 cm x 38 cm x 23 cm size are allowed inside cabin and these shall be within the weight and dimension restrictions. Medium sized instruments of 160 cm x 40 cm x 50 cm dimensions can be carried in cabin by purchasing and extra seat for it or can also be checked in. Only one such instrument per passenger would be allowed inside cabin. Extra seat must be bought at least 3 hours before departure and, if checked in, Luggage Upsize shall be bought 4 hours before departure of flight. Large Instruments of size 190cm x 60cm x 80cm shall be checked in. Any instrument of more than this size is not allowed.

Tigerair Australia permits carriage of instruments in cabin provided these are no larger than 30 x 117 x 38 cm. Above this dimension, it needs to be checked.

Carriage of live animals is not allowed on Tigerair except for Seeing eye dogs on domestic flights of Australia. Human remains are not allowed on its flights.

You will have to buy check in baggage for infant. Pram or portable cot can be carried in check in free of cost.

Hi, may I know there is limitation for a number of baggages to check in? I already upsized to 40kg .

Admin Reply :

How many are you planning to take? Since weight you want to carry is 40 kg, it has to be taken in two check in bags since one check in bag can not be more than 30 kg. So, 2 have to be taken.
