Higher Free Baggage Allowance (20kg) on domestic turboprop flights starting June 15

Good news for our passengers: 

Effective from June 15, 2022, all PAL domestic flights utilizing the De Havilland Dash-8 turboprop aircraft (except flights to and from Basco, Batanes) will offer up to 20kg Free Baggage Allowance (FBA) for Economy Value and Economy Flex passengers – a 100% increase from the previous maximum FBA of 10kg that has been in effect for several years.   

The increased baggage allowance will allow more flexibility and convenience for domestic travelers, as well as result in a uniform standard for PAL domestic flights whether operated with jet or turboprop aircraft. 

Passengers holding old and new tickets issued for travel on or after June 15 will be allowed to check-in up to 20kg on the applicable booking classes (Economy Value and Economy Flex). 
The new FBA will apply to PAL’s turboprop flights from our Manila, Cebu, Davao and General Santos hubs, including flights to Butuan, Cotabato, Catarman, Calbayog, Dumaguete, Antique, Siargao, Legazpi, Caticlan (Boracay), Busuanga (Coron), Iloilo, Tagbilaran (Panglao), Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Clark, Davao, Puerto Princesa, Tacloban and Zamboanga. 
However, we will retain the current maximum FBA of 10kg for flights to and from Basco (BSO), because of unique route operational conditions that limit the baggage capacity on these flights.  

The baggage rules for other fare types will remain unchanged:  FBA of 30 Kg for Business Value;  35 kg for Business Flex; 10 Kg  for Economy Saver (flying on either jet or turboprop aircraft); and no FBA for Economy Supersaver.
