New fees applicable on the first piece of checked baggage
Air Transat aligns itself with other Canadian carriers by applying a $25 fee on the first piece of checked baggage, per flight segment, for Economy Class passengers who have booked flights only to the Caribbean, Mexico and Central and South America* – a policy that was already in effect on flights to the United States.
However, for Economy Class passengers who have booked all-inclusive packages to the South, Air Transat will include one free piece of checked baggage of 23 kg, compared to 20 kg under the previous policy. Air Transat will continue to allow one free piece of checked baggage of 23 kg for all Economy Class passengers travelling to Europe.
Increasing baggage allowances for Option Plus and Club Class passengers
Option Plus passengers in Economy Class will benefit from an additional piece of checked baggage of 23 kg. This new privilege makes an upgrade to Option Plus even more attractive, in particular to passengers who book flights only or packages to the South or Europe, as baggage allowances increase to two pieces of 23 kg each, for a total of 46 kg. Option Plus benefits also include seat selection and priority check-in, boarding and baggage handling, as well as other extras on board.
Club Class passengers will also benefit from an increased baggage allowance. Those travelling to the South, the United States or within Canada will be allowed two pieces of 25 kg each, for a total of 50 kg, while those travelling to Europe will be allowed two pieces of 32 kg each, for a total of 64 kg, compared to 40 kg under the previous policy.
It is also worth noting that the sporting equipment baggage policy remains unchanged.
