singapore airlines baggage allowance

The information posted seems quite old . I was wondering if anyone had more recent info. Does anyone know whether extra baggage kgs can be pre-purchased? I would appreciate the advice.

Hello,

The Singapore Airlines website should have the most current information.

Thanks Avanti50. Had a look at that. Going to Uk & Europe for 9 weeks . Really would like some extra baggage kgs on the return trip. Guess I'll just have to pack extra light to leave room for the shopping. Happy travels.

Unfortunately you will not be able to buy additional checked-in baggage allowance prior to your flight. Generally you are allowed 23-kg of total weight per passenger.

SIA allow 20kg per pasenger in economy. You can risk going over a few kg and hope that things are light enough they are lax, but expect a chunky bill if they are heavily loaded.

For extra baggage they shift you to SIA cargo - whether they can tie that to a passenger flight I do not know the website is limited in info but direct you to the local office

I've never gone over, but up to 23kgs you should be OK

Search as I may I cannot find anything about ''excess baggage'', on SIAs website, but as others have said, it won't come cheap, so it'll be pay-up or dispose, or don't travel.

Wash n wear is favorite.

Good luck. Alan.

I don't think excess baggage allowance can be pre-purchased on full service airlines

We recently travelled Singapore Air from Brisbane. When we booked in Sept there was a promotion on whereby economy allowance was 30kg. Not sure how long it lasted or if it is still on. I didn't realise until I looked at E ticket. If u booked around then check your Itinerary or E ticket. Singapore Air are very efficient if u ring, email or pose question on theirFacebook page. Have a good trip.
