Cathay Pacific and Dragonair have added 10kg of additional baggage allowance for all classes of travel.
The revised weight system, available to all passengers, will come into effect on September 15.
Marco Polo Club silver, gold and diamond tier members will still benefit from an extra 10kg, 15kg and 20kg, respectively.
However, both airlines will introduce a two piece luggage limit. First Class passengers will be entitled to check-in three baggage items free of charge. Marco Polo Club Gold and Diamond members will be entitled to check-in one additional item on top of their travel class allowance.
In addition to the enhanced check-in baggage policy, Dragonair will increase its carry-on baggage allowance, which currently stands at 5kg in all classes, to match that of Cathay Pacific. The new allowance for passengers travelling in economy and premium economy will be increased to 7kg; Business Class and First Class passengers will enjoy allowances of 10kg and 15kg respectively.
