BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE AND FEES
Baggage Allowance and Fees

Philippine Airlines introduces a new range of Fare Families or Branded Fares, where distinct free baggage allowance is
associated to each fare brand. Travellers enjoy flexibility in choosing the fare that comes with needed baggage benefits.

The FBA entitlement is valid only for the entire journey indicated on the ticket and may not necessarily apply
to connecting flights. Domestic FBA shall apply on domestic tickets purchased separately from an international
ticket.


PAL or other carriers may collect excess baggage fees if the FBA entitlement on the connecting flights is lower.

Unless otherwise provided in the e-ticket, the following FBA and Excess Baggage Charge (EBC) shall apply on PAL operated
flights:
