Low-cost carrier Easyjet is bringing in a new baggage policy, which includes a new 15kg hold bag option and an increase to the standard bag allowance from 20kg to 23kg.
Easyjet says the 15kg bag offers a new option for those carrying more than is allowed in a cabin bag but less than a standard suitcase. Director Andrew Middleton commented that the move came after the airline discovered almost half its passengers’ checked bags contained 15kg or less in the last year.
The new weight allowances are available online only from today and only apply to new bookings. Passengers who have already booked a 20kg bag for future flights will be subject to the old policy.
