Excess baggage charges

Additional baggage

When you fly with us, we offer you a generous baggage allowance across all classes of travel. If your baggage exceeds this free allowance, additional baggage charges will apply.


Piece pricing for travel to/from the USA
Weight pricing for travel to/from any other destination


Additional baggage charges are assessed each time you check in. For example, if your journey takes you from Jakarta to Singapore to Tokyo to Los Angeles,you’ll be charged for:

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

The same weight and baggage size limitations apply to additional baggage as they do to free checked baggage.


We are unable to accept any item above 32kg as checked baggage, and these items may have to be re-packed or sent as cargo. Get in touch with your local SIA Cargo office prior to your travel if you wish to transport any item above 32kg as cargo.
