I am writing this article based on the number of requests I get concerning Baggage allowance. I know most people are actually concerned about the excess baggage cost. They just want to know how much they are going to pay in case if they exceed the baggage allowance.
I know someone that cancelled a flight just because of the baggage allowance. The main reason why he cancelled the flight is that the amount he was supposed to pay for excess baggage was high and after calculating, he found out another airline would be better in terms of the cost for excess baggage allowance.
So I am going to review every detail concerning Air Peace baggage allowance so that when next you are travelling, you will mind how to pack. I am a big fan of “Travel Light” anyways and I would advise you pack what is necessary when travelling.
Air Peace baggage allowance and cost varies in two ways. First is in the class of service and second is the route. What I am trying to say is, your class of service will determine the weight of free baggage allowance and the amount for excess baggage allowance. The class of service here means economy and business class while the route is the domestic and regional route.
The weight of free Baggage allowance and cost for excess Baggage in Economy and Business (Domestic Flights Only)
Air Peace free baggage allowance for an economy class on all domestic flight (Flights within Nigeria) is 20kg (kilogram) while business class free baggage allowance is 40kg.
Cost for excess baggage.
The cost of excess baggage for both economy and business class is
N500 per kilogram.
The weight of free Baggage allowance and cost for excess Baggage in Economy and Business (Regional Flights Only)
For regional flights, economy passengers are entitled to 30kg free baggage allowance while business class passengers are entitled to 40kg baggage allowance. Air Peace regional flights are from Nigeria to Accra, Freetown Banjul Dakar and Monrovia.
The Cost of excess baggage (regional flights only)
The cost of excess baggage for both economy and business class passengers is $3 per kilogram.
I believe there is no need to explain why business class passengers free baggage allowance is higher than the economy passengers.
How to Pay For Excess Baggage
All excess baggage cost will be paid at the airport. As you arrive at the airport, your baggage will be weighed and if it exceeds the free baggage allowance, you will pay for the excess at the airport counter.
Like as I said before, you can actually avoid this excess baggage cost simply by packing light. How to pack light, first by packing what is necessary and secondly, by reading this post about how to pack.
Make sure you pack only the items that are acceptable. Some items are prohibited, that is you are not allowed to travel with it via plane. You can choose any other means of transportation for them. If you are packing, make sure you seal your bag very well to avoid theft.
