Flyadeal adopts 'one cabin bag' policy

JEDDAH, November 8, 2018

Flyadeal, Saudi Arabia's low-cost airline, has revised its cabin baggage policy, permitting one bag into the cabin per passenger from November 19.

The weight limit for the cabin bag is 7kg with maximum dimensions of 55x35x25cm (including handle and wheels).

Eyad Jamalallail, airports manager at flyadeal, said: “Because our flights are frequently full, we have sometimes run out of overhead bin space. When this happens, it can generate delays and a negative experience for our customers. We decided to address this with a new fair policy that is designed to allow more customers space for their cabin baggage. While it does mean that if a customer needs a purse or laptop onboard, it will need to fit in the one bag allowed, the just one bag policy will deliver a more streamlined boarding experience and our customers and crew will spend less time moving bags around the cabin.”

“Of course, customers will sometimes need to carry more than 7kg,” noted Sudeep Ghai, chief customer and commercial officer. "For that, we have reduced the price for checking in a 15kg bag as luggage that goes in the hold by over 25 per cent to just SR40 ($10.6). However, the cost will be higher if purchased at the airport check-in counter, and higher still if customers bring an oversized or overweight bag to the gate that needs to be checked in. To keep the cost of your journey as low as possible, we advise travellers to pay for what they need and book early." - TradeArabia News Service
