New Cathay service makes extra baggage cheaper


Cathay Pacific has launched its new Prepaid Extra Baggage booking service, which offers a 20% discount on the standard excess baggage rate.

Passengers are currently entitled to between 30kg and 50kg of standard luggage allowance depending on their class of travel. Passengers wanting to bring more baggage than this on a Cathay Pacific-operated flight can now prepay online, with prices for flights from Europe to Hong Kong, Mainland China, East Asia, or South East Asia standing at $160 (R2 245) for every extra 5kg up to a maximum of 50kg if they book at least 24 hours before departure.

Prices for excess baggage for flights originating from or landing at other destinations range from $50 (R700) to $160 (R2 245) per 5kg.
