Passengers flying with Kenya’s national carrier to start enjoying cheaper cargo costs

Business class passengers will maintain their allowance at two free bags at 32 kilograms maximum weight per bag.

  • The new baggage policy entitles guests to 20% discount on any extra bag.
  • Guests will be entitled to one free bag in the economy class cabin at a maximum weight of 23 kilograms per passenger within Africa.

In addition to reduced extra baggage fees within Intra-Africa flights, guests will be entitled to one free bag in the economy class cabin at a maximum weight of 23 kilograms per passenger within Africa.

“The new baggage policy is part of Kenya Airways strategy to provide simplified and discounted competitive prices for passengers who book their extra baggage, any time before 24 hours to departure whilst enhancing customer service for our guests”  said Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and CEO Mr. Sebastian Mikosz.

However, the intra-Africa one free bag allowance will not apply to passengers travelling to and from other continents.

Kenya Airways which flies to 51 destinations worldwide, 42 of which are in Africa has also expanded its distribution channels by increasing the available points where passengers will be able to purchase extra baggage.

This move is intended to provide more convenience for passengers.

The airline which carries over three million passengers annually and has a fleet of 32 modern aircrafts was early this year granted rights to fly directly to the New York.

Kenya Airways Boeing 787-8-Dreamliner is scheduled to make the maiden trip to New york on October 28th.

The new baggage policy will take effect on May 15th 2018.
