A new “piece based baggage policy” adopted by Fiji Airways will offer guests more convenient travel with less bulky luggage.
The national carrier is moving away from the weight based policy for Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hawaii and the Pacific Islands to enhance the experience for guests and to make baggage handling easier for them.
Business Class guests will be able to bring onboard two pieces of checked-in luggage at 30kgs each and Economy Class guests will be allowed one piece at 30kgs.
Fiji Airways Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Andre Viljoen says, “Carrying multiple pieces of luggage can be quite strenuous, so we have come up with a policy which is less stressful for guests. It’s convenient, and avoids confusion with different baggage policies for different destinations. The piece-based baggage policy will also be implemented in markets which are due to re-open soon,” he said.
In addition to the new policy, Tabua Club Classic members will be entitled to one extra piece of checked-in luggage at 10kgs while Tabua Club Plus members get one extra piece at 15kgs. The airline’s regional carrier Fiji Link will have an allocation of one-piece checked-in luggage at 15kgs.
The policy is effective for bookings made for travel commencing on or after February 1.
