Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Latest Travel News Tuesday, 2 November 2010

Cathay Pacific is to introduce a new method of calculating extra baggage charges with effect from 1 December 2010 for flights to all destinations in its network.

The key element of the new system will be a switch from the current charging rate for extra baggage, which is based on ticket fares, to a system that is calculated in accordance with a structured system of travel zones.

Passengers can now view a transparent grid of charges through the airlineís website, and from that can calculate exactly what charges they will have to pay by referring to the zones in which their travel originates and ends.

A  Cathay Pacific spokesman said, ďWe believe passengers will appreciate the transparency of our new baggage policy, which will make the calculation of extra and special baggage charges for each journey much more straightforward and transparent. Dividing our network into zones makes for a simple and efficient way to calculate the charges according to the distance travelled.Ē

There will be no changes to the airlineís cabin baggage allowances.
