It's stress-free to know ahead of time how many bags you're allowed to travel with, that is, the maximum allowable weight and linear dimension limit for your hand carry and check in luggage.
It is your responsibility as a traveler to know our luggage requirements explained below. Taking care of this detail is one step to making your check-in fast and effortless.
|Item Description||Linear Dimension per piece||Weight||Quantity|
Note – Hand carry above allowance must be repacked under the allowance limit or is considered checked baggage
|CHECKED BAG: Total linear – 75 inches (190 cm)|
|Length||35 inches (89 cm)|
|Height||22 inches (56 cm)|
|Width||18 inches (46 cm)|
Note – Hand carry above allowance must be repacked under the allowance limit or is considered checked baggage.
STEP 1. Measure the length, height and width of your packed suitcase in inches (or cm) with a tape measure. Include any handles or wheels in your measurements.
STEP 2. Add the three measurements together. The sum of the three measurements is your bag's linear dimensions.
STEP 3. Compare your luggage's linear dimensions with Talofa Airways allowable dimensions below.
Any one piece over 28 kilograms (62 lbs) or 75 inches (190 cm) linear dimensions are not permitted as checked baggage/cargo and must be repacked under the allowance limit.
Excess baggage fee at check-in applies when:
1. The permitted free baggage allowance (20kgs/44lbs) or linear dimensions limit (65 inches/165 cm) for your first piece has been exceeded.
2. You have any additional baggage(s) to be checked in.
If your first piece is over 20 kgs / 44 lbs (28 kgs/62 lbs maximum per piece) or linear dimension over 65 inches / 165cm (75 inches/190 cm maximum per piece), whichever cost is greater will be charged to the passenger.
When calculating the charge for excess dimensions, the Total Dimensional Weight is first calculated. Dimensional Weight (lbs) is calculated using the following formula, where the total is always rounded up to the next whole number: (Length x Width x Height) ÷ 166
Compare the Actual Weight and Dimensional Weight and use whichever is greater (excess for the first piece or any additional pieces).
1 lb - 13.99 lbs = USD 14.00 / WST 35.00
14 lbs - 26.99 lbs = USD 26.00 / WST 65.00
27 lbs - 45.99 lbs = USD 50.00 / WST 125.00
46 lbs - 61.99 lbs = USD 76.00 / WST 190.00
62 lbs - 84 lbs = USD 100.00 / WST 250.00
1 lb - 13.99 lbs = USD 30.00 / TOP 66.00 / WST 75.00
14 lbs - 26.99 lbs = USD 50.00 / TOP 110.00 / WST 125.00
27 lbs - 45.99 lbs = USD 80.00 / TOP 176.00 / WST 200.00
46 lbs - 61.99 lbs = USD 120.00 / TOP 264.00 / WST 300.00
