News: SAA introduces baggage piece concept
Starting September 5, SAA will move to a checked baggage policy that restricts the number of pieces of baggage a passenger may check in, rather than the total weight of the passenger’s checked baggage.
Each of these pieces will be subject to weight and size restrictions. The number of baggage pieces, as well as the weight restrictions for each piece, will depend on the route and class of travel.
Excess baggage, i.e additional items, or where the baggage exceeds the weight and or size allowance, will be charged at a flat rate per piece of luggage. This is a change from the current policy where excess baggage is charged per kilogram.
The policy aligned with most of the larger Star Alliance member carriers, ensuring a transparent and consistent set of rules across SAA and other Star Alliance networks, the airline said.
