Baggage Allowance and Fees

Baggage Allowance and Fees

 

Philippine Airlines (PAL) introduces a new range of Fare Families or Branded Fares, where distinct FREE BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE (FBA) is associated to each fare family/brand. Travellers enjoy flexibility in choosing the fare that comes with needed baggage benefits.


Free Bagggage Allowance (FBA) is the amount of check-in baggage Philippine Airlines (PAL) will allow per passenger to bring as indicated in the passenger ticket 


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


Philippine Airlines (PAL) or other carriers may collect Excess Baggage Charge (EBC) if the Free Baggage Allowance (FBA) entitlement on the connecting flights is lower.

 

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