Kolkata; June 25 (IBNS): Air Arabia, the largest low-cost carrier (LCC) in the Middle East and North Africa, on Monday announced it has introduced a new online pre-booked baggage policy, enabling passengers to pay for only the baggage weight they need.

The new policy, effective for all tickets purchased on or after July 1, allows passengers when booking a flight with Air Arabia to pre-booka checked baggage weight allowance (20kg, 30kg or 40kg), with no limitation on the number of pieces.

Passengers who pre-book a 20kg checked baggage allowance will pay AED10, while passengers booking 30kg will pay AED20.

Subject to availability, a 40kg checked baggage allowance can also be pre-booked for AED100.

"These rates, which are the lowest available in the market, apply to one way tickets and are inclusive of all applicable taxes," said an official spokesperson.

The airline also announced that it has raised its cabin baggage allowance from 7kg to 10kg.

Adel Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer, Air Arabia, said: "The newly designed and improved baggage policy offers great peace of mind for our customers. This move will enable our passengers to save even more when flying with Air Arabia, by only paying for the baggage allowance they need."
