Check-in Baggage

Neither light fares nor express fares include checked baggage.

Prices will differ dependent on when you choose to purchase baggage in the booking process. To avoid higher fees and save more, it is advised you purchase baggage at the time of booking rather than through Manage My Booking, our Customer Contact Centre, Web Check-in or at the Airport.

  • Baggage will be least expensive when purchased at the time of booking.
  • Baggage will be more expensive when purchased through Manage My Booking, our Customer Contact Centre or Web Check-in. Baggage can be added up until 2 hours before departure for domestic flights.
  • Baggage will be most expensive when purchased at the Airport.

Check-in baggage must not exceed 30kgs per bag, if required please split the weight amongst multiple bags. Please note the weight of your baggage will be checked at the airport. Please keep within the allowances to avoid additional fees.

At the time of making your booking you will have the choice to add check-in baggage for each customer in the booking. Check-in baggage can be selected per customer per flight and different weight allowances are available. All pricing will be presented to you when making your selection.

Customers who do not select Check-in baggage during the booking process can add Check-in baggage to their booking prior to travel via manage my booking, during web check-in, or by contacting our customer contact centre at a higher rate.

Customers can purchase 15 kg or 20kg of check-in baggage at the airport during check in if they have no previous check in baggage allowance pre-purchased. Customers will be charged the airport rates specified on our Fees and Charges page. Anything in excess of 20kg will be subject to excess baggage charges per kilogram. Any additional baggage allowance purchased at the airport will be carried subject to space availability.

Tigerair does not accept responsibility for unsuitably packed, perishable, damaged or fragile luggage or for minor damage to the exterior of luggage (e.g. scratches, stains, soiling, dents) resulting from normal wear and tear or for water damage to non-water-resistant luggage or damage to external fixtures such as handles, wheels, zippers or locks.
