    Check in heavier bags on SIA, SilkAir

    TRAVELLERS flying Singapore Airlines and SilkAir will enjoy higher baggage allowances across all classes from tomorrow.

    Checked-in baggage allowances will increase by 10kg for all classes of travel, the airlines said yesterday.

    Customers will be entitled to free baggage allowances of 50kg in suites and first class, 40kg in business class and 30kg in economy class. For flights to and from the United States, where a per-piece allowance applies, customers travelling in suites, first class and business class will be entitled to check in two pieces of luggage of up to 32kg each, up from 23kg previously.

    "Increasing baggage allowances across all classes of travel is in response to feedback from our customers and reaffirms our commitment to constantly enhancing customer service," said SIA's senior vice-president for sales and marketing, Mr Chin Yau Seng.

    KrisFlyer Elite Gold and Star Alliance Gold members will continue to enjoy their usual baggage-allowance benefits.
