Jetstar raises the limit for hand luggage so that passengers can avoid huge costs by loading & # 39; if they pack too heavily
- Jetstar has doubled its hand luggage limit to 14 kg for an additional fee
- Passengers can avoid high costs by supplementing their weight supplement online & # 39;
- Starting costs start at $ 19 and apply to domestic and some international flights
Jetstar has increased its hand luggage limit to 14 kg, allowing passengers to pack more without paying exorbitant costs.
The Australian airline launched their additional cabin baggage on Wednesday, allowing customers to supplement their weight surcharge for $ 19 & # 39 ;.
Although all starting fares include hand baggage limits of 7 kg, travelers can save money by purchasing additional hand baggage at the time of their online booking to avoid an additional $ 50 at the airport.
A Jetstar spokesperson said: & # 39; As part of our online booking process, we encourage customers to consider what they are taking with them on their journey and to purchase extra baggage at the moment when prices are lowest. & # 39;
Jetstar has doubled the amount of hand luggage to 14 kg to speed up waiting times for customers
The launch is intended to help more customers speed up their journey by checking in baggage and having to pick it up at the arrival carousel.
Jetstar introduced its first paid hand baggage option in 2018 that allows travelers to increase their hand baggage by 3 kg to 10 kg.
The new reimbursement replaces this option and is available on domestic and some international flights.
The number of available reloads is limited due to storage restrictions, so customers wishing to purchase additional baggage are advised to do so in advance.
Airline rules indicate that the bag must fit into the wall units and must not be larger than 56 cm (height) x 36 cm (width) x 23 cm (depth).
The shift steps Jetstar in line with the current baggage allowance of Qantas that allows passengers to carry 14 kg of hand luggage on all domestic flights.
The new option offers 2 kg more than competitor Tiger Air of the budget company.
Club Jetstar members receive a 20 percent discount when purchasing the reload as part of their flight booking.
