Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Tips.com Latest Travel News Monday, 14 September 2009

Virgin Atlantic is changing its baggage policy. From 25 November 2009, the airline will introduce a "piece system" across its network for all tickets booked after that date. The new system means that:

Economy passengers will be able to check-in 1 bag weighing up to 23 kilos

Premium Economy passengers will be able to check-in 2 bags each weighing up to 23 kilos

Upper Class passengers will be able to check-in up to 3 bags each weighing up to 23 kilos

The airline will also continue to offer one of the airline industryís most generous sporting bag allowances, enabling all passengers to check-in one additional bag weighing up to 23 kilos that contains sporting equipment, such as a golf bag, scuba diving equipment, or ski equipment.

In addition, Flying Club Gold Card holders are entitled to take one additional bag on top of their free allowance, in any cabin. If travelling in Upper Class, this means Gold Card passengers can check-in up to four bags.

Passengers wanting to check-in extra bags will pay for each piece, with each extra bag costing £32/US$48 if paid for online. Higher charges will apply at airport check-in.

Chris Birch, Head of Product, Virgin Atlantic, said, "Passengers can now benefit from one of the simplest and most generous baggage policies in the industry. It means lower charges for passengers wishing to take additional bags and a great allowance for those going on a sporting trip."

Economy passengers travelling between Heathrow and Nairobi, and Heathrow and Lagos, will continue to be able to check-in two bags if travelling in economy.

Any passenger holding a ticket booked and ticketed before 25 November 2009 will be entitled to Virgin Atlanticís existing baggage allowance. Any bags weighing over 32 kilos will not be accepted.
