What is the Jet Airways baggage allowance?

The good news is Jet Airways offers a free baggage allowance regardless of what class you’re flying in. The bad news is it can be complicated to work out how much baggage you’re entitled to take.

One of the factors affecting the allowance is which Jet Airways’ fare you book: Deal, Saver, Classic or Flex. Not all fares are available in every class so do your homework before you decide.

Your free baggage allowance and excess baggage charges will depend on what fare you choose, what class you book and whether you’re a member of the JetPrivilege loyalty program. Here are two examples:

  • Dubai to Mumbai in Economy (Deal fare): 30kg as standard, 40kg for Silver members, 45kg for Gold members and 50kg for Platinum members.
    An oversized piece of hand luggage or checked baggage will cost you $150 (Dh550) a piece, and the excess baggage charge is $20 (Dh73) a kilo

  • Dubai to Mumbai in Première (Flex fare): 40kg as standard, 50kg for Silver members, 55kg for Gold members and 60kg for Platinum members.
    An oversized piece of hand luggage or checked baggage will cost you $150 (Dh550) a piece, and the excess baggage charge is $20 (Dh73) a kilo

Take note of the extras

Jet Airways allows passengers to take a few extra items on the plane as well as their normal hand luggage bag. These include: a handbag, reading material for the journey, an infant carry basket, and an overcoat or blanket. If you want to take a book or two, take them as your reading material and save the weight and space in your hand baggage bag!

Buy wearable luggage

Clothing companies have cottoned on to how much people care about their luggage allowances when they’re traveling. There’s now such a thing as ‘wearable luggage’, which means you can get extra kilos without breaking the Jet Airways baggage rules. The Stuffa jacket can carry an extra 5kg of clothing in it, meaning your total cabin luggage allowance has magically increased from 7kg to 12kg!
