British Airways on Friday in a statement said that all passengers travelling between India and the UK on its flights will be able to carry double check-in baggage with them during this winter season.

The airline in a statement stated,“All passengers traveling in World Traveller (Economy Cabin) will be gifted an extra piece of checked baggage weighing 23 kgs for all bookings made on all flights during the winter season.”

“2020 has been a difficult year for our customers and during the winter period we want to help relieve the strain, so we are pleased to be able to make a small gesture to allow our customers to carry more, particularly at a time when we know people are visiting their families.”, said Moran Birger, Head of Sales, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East, British Airways.

Till now, Economy class passengers on British Airways’ flights were allowed to carry one piece of check-in baggage weighing not more than 23KG but from now on, Economy class customers will be able to carry two piece of check-in baggage weighing a maximum of 23KG.

A child is allowed to check-in two items for free from the following: a car seat, a travel cot, a baby back carrier or fully-collapsible pushchair.

This increase doubles the current allowance from one to two pieces of hold luggage as well as still offering two additional pieces of hand luggage.

It should be noted that British Airways is currently operating the flights between India and the UK under the air travel bubble agreement signed between the two countries.

It is a nice gesture to allow double check-in baggage by British Airways. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
