To improve check-in efficiency and reduce queuing time at airports, the revised baggage policy will follow a weight system with piece count. Passengers in Business Class, Premium Economy Class and Economy Class will be entitled to check-in two baggage items free of charge. First Class passengers will be entitled to check-in three baggage items free of charge. Marco Polo Club Gold and Diamond members will be entitled to check-in one additional item on top of their travel class allowance.
In addition to the enhanced check-in baggage policy, Dragonair will increase its carry-on baggage allowance, currently standing at 5kg in all classes, to match that of Cathay Pacific. The new allowance for passengers travelling in Economy and Premium Economy will be increased to 7kg, with Business Class and First Class allowances increasing to 10kg and 15kg respectively.
The enhanced check-in baggage allowance will be applicable to air tickets issued or exchanged on or after 15 September 2016, while the new carry-on baggage policy will be effective from 15 September 2016.
Make the most of the extra luggage allowances by travelling with suitcases that are extra light such as the Paklite Airolite softside spinner collection. Their ultra-light construction maximises packing requirements for air travel weight restrictions and has added security features such as TSA approved combination locks, a twin zip on the main compartment to prevent thieves from piercing the zip and stealing belongings plus spinner wheels for easy gliding. The cabin size model features the unique RFID blocking pocket to prevent identity fraud from unlawful scanning devices, as well as a Smart Sleeve that slips over the trolley handle of another bag, allowing easy gliding through the airport.
I always invest in the lightest available luggage that adheres to all the latest rules and regulations. The money spent is more than compensated in savings made on excess baggage payments.
