Knowing your baggage allowance can make a difference to your journey and ensure safety and comfort. As you will not have access to your checked baggage during flight, we advise that you carry your medication, travel documents and valuables in your carry-on baggage. For easy identification, do also label your checked baggage with full contact information.

Checked baggage allowances

Singapore Airlines baggage allowances

Allowances are based on the weight or piece concept.

For journeys involving multiple airlines, the baggage policy is guided by International Air Transport Association (IATA) Resolution 302. If your itinerary contains flights on other airlines, the baggage allowance shown on your ticket may differ from the baggage allowance accorded by Singapore Airlines. Singapore Airlines will apply the baggage allowance that is shown on the ticket.

As a Singapore Airlines’ PPS Club or KrisFlyer Elite Gold member, you can enjoy additional baggage allowance when you travel on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir. Star Alliance Gold members also enjoy extra baggage allowance when travelling on Singapore Airlines.

Please expand the tabs below for more information on your baggage allowance.

    • Note: In accordance with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s regulations, for travel originating or travel ending in the United States, if the first carrier on your booking is not Singapore Airlines, that carrier’s baggage policy may apply for the whole itinerary.
    • Depending on where your travel begins or ends in the United States, different baggage rules may apply:

      – If your first flight originates on Singapore Airlines from LAX, SFO, IAH, JFK or on a US Airways flight with an SQ flight number, then Singapore Airlines’ baggage policy will apply to your entire itinerary.

      – If your first flight originates from any other U.S. city or the first flight does not have an SQ flight number, the baggage policy of the first carrier may apply to the whole itinerary (per US Department of Transportation rules).

      – If your destination is a US city and first flight does not have an SQ flight number, the baggage policy of the first carrier may apply to the whole itinerary (per US Department of Transportation rules).

      – If another airline’s baggage policy applies to your booking, an additional baggage allowance can only be purchased from that airline. Please refer to the relevant websites of our partner airlines to review their specific rules.

  • Baggage allowance for journeys involving multiple airlines
    The information in this section applies to itineraries that are shown on the same ticket.  If your flights are on separate tickets, the baggage allowance printed on each ticket will apply.

    1. Journeys to and from the United States

      ‘Marketing Carrier’ refers to the airline that sells the ticket for a flight. It may or may not be the one to operate that flight.  The ‘Most Significant Marketing Carrier’ is generally defined as the airline whose airline code is represented in the ticket for the geographically longest or most significant stretch of the journey.

      For journeys to and from the US, the first marketing carrier will determine the baggage policies for the entire journey.  The first marketing carrier may choose to apply the baggage policies of the Most Significant Marketing Carrier or apply its own baggage policies for the journey.

      Example:
      Washington –[XX] – San Francisco – [SQ] – Hong Kong – [YY] – Singapore

      In this example, Airline XX is the first marketing carrier whereas Singapore Airlines is the Most Significant Marketing Carrier.  Being the first marketing carrier, Airline XX can choose to apply its own baggage policy or to apply the policy of the Most Significant Marketing Carrier. The policy that is chosen will apply to the entire journey.

    2. Journeys where the origin or destination is not in the United States

      ‘Operating Carrier’ refers to the airline that operates the flight. It may or may not be the airline that sells the ticket for that flight. The ‘Most Significant Operating Carrier’ is generally defined as the airline which operates the geographically longest or most significant stretch of the sectors.

      For journeys where the origin or destination is not in the US, the baggage allowance policies of the Most Significant Operating Carrier will apply for sector(s) between stopovers. If there is no stopover, the policy of the Most Significant Operating Carrier applies for the entire journey.

      For the avoidance of doubt, please refer to your ticket to check the applicable free baggage allowance of each sector.

      Example 1:
      Singapore – [SQ] – Bangkok (Stopover) – [AA] – Copenhagen (non-stopover) – [BB] – Stockholm

      In this example, the journey is broken up by a stopover in Bangkok. Therefore, there are two sectors and each sector has a Most Significant Operating Carrier.

      From Singapore to Bangkok, Singapore Airlines is the Most Significant Operating Carrier and the baggage policies of Singapore Airlines will apply to this sector.

      From Bangkok to Stockholm, Airline AA is the Most Significant Operating Carrier as it operates the geographically-longer stretch from Bangkok to Copenhagen. The baggage policy of Airline AA will apply to the entire sector from Bangkok to Stockholm.

      Example 2:
      Canberra – [PP] – Brisbane (non-stopover) – [QQ] – Singapore (non-stopover) – [SQ] –  London

      In this example, there is one Most Significant Operating Carrier because there are no stopovers in the journey. Singapore Airlines is the Most Significant Operating Carrier as it is operating the geographically longer stretch from Singapore to London. Therefore, the baggage policies of Singapore Airlines will apply from Canberra to London.
