  • Excess baggage charges for itineraries involving transfers or re-check in

    Excess baggage charges may be re-assessed at the point of transfer or whenever you re-check in to a connecting flight.  The charges for excess baggage are applied on each flight segment.   For example, if your itinerary is Jakarta – Singapore –Tokyo – Los Angeles, it will be considered as:

    • Three flight segments if you check in separately at Jakarta, Singapore and Tokyo,
    • Two flight segments if you check in separately at Jakarta and Singapore (or at Jakarta and at Tokyo)
    • One flight segment if you through-check in from Jakarta to Los Angeles.

    For the countries that observe the Occupational Health Safety rule, any baggage that weighs above 32kg will not be accepted as checked baggage and may have to be sent as cargo. Please contact your local SIA office prior to your travel.
