  1. Be clear: how much luggage checked in can we have? Two people traveling together on the same ticket?

    How much carry on can we bring?
    Is it measured by bag or total weight?

    1. Hi,
      Each economy class passenger has an allowance of 25kg each of checked baggage, regardless of the number of items. The accepted practice is Malaysia is that passengers travelling on the same ticket may combine their allowances. Your carry-on is calculated both by size and weight (7kg). You may have two pieces. Baby strollers and wheelchairs are carried free of charge, but you need to get them tagged at check-in. Full baggage information can be found here:
      Hope this helps.
      ** Remember, most airlines don’t like you to make any one bag too heavy, for health & safety reasons. 25kg per bag is usually OK.

      1. Hello does malindo have reatriction on the size of a checked in bagggage my card box box contauns a dismantled table meaauring 31 inch × 31 inch × 3 inch measuing to 75 inch is this allowed as checked in baggage

          1. Hi Rajju,
            You may have to check it in as ‘oversized’. They will tell you what to do. Don’t panic when you don’t see it on the carousel at the destination, it will probably be at the oversize baggage place there.

  2. Hello, we are flying from depansar (Bali) to Brisbane (Australia). I know for the check in bagage it’s maximum 25kg/pax. We have 2 surfboards in 1 bag (8.5ft) and 2 backpacks. all together it wont be more than 50kg, but is it ok that the board bag is 3 meter? And also, do we need to do anything special for this or is it normal check-in? Thank you.

    1. Hi, There is an oversize baggage counter, but you’ll need to take your surfboards to the normal check-in counter first to be tagged then drop them at the oversize counter. The check-in people will direct you. Just a couple of cautions: Because the boards are long ones, there may be a sporting goods fee, although this is not automatic. It might also be a good idea to call the airline to check that the aircraft can actually fit the board, as they use a Boeing 737.

  3. I bought my ticket before you changed baggage allowance.It says 30kg on it.Do I get the new total allowance of 32 kg andwhere can I purchase extra kg for my flight on Wednesday 2 nd May to Brisbane.Thankyou

    1. Hi Rachel, I’m assuming you’ve already booked your ticket and want to add more luggage allowance. I couldn’t find it either, so checked with Malindo Air, who replied speedily: “Passengers who have booked their tickets can go to “Manage Booking” (on the landing page, below the main banner) to make changes to their booking. Otherwise, they can contact our customer care line or reach out to our ticketing office to assist them.”
      I hope this helps.
      Basically, it’s just confirming that they don’t have a page detailing the rates with a link. You’ll get this information when you have a booking number to enter through ‘Manage my booking’.

  4. Hi

  5. Good PM,

    1. Hi,
      As per the advice given in the article each passenger will receive a free baggage allowance of 25kg.
      If you need more, this may be purchased as per the Malindo Air guidelines.
      Have a great flight.

  6. Hi i am planning to fly from SG-KL on 26/10:18 and return from KL-SG on 10/11/18,i am buying economy class seat, may i find out what is the free check in baggage allowance for each way? Thanks.

    1. As this flight uses their Boeing 737 aircraft, you have a free baggage allowance of 25kg each way, with the option to pre-purchase up to 25kg more.

  7. hi,i’m planning to fly from 2 nd april .I am buying economy class seat, may i find out what is the free check in baggage allowance .
    and how much charge of extra luggage per kg.

    1. Hi, You can carry a maximum of 50 KG (25 KG free baggage + 25 KG prepaid baggage). The charges for the extra are listed on their website. It is advisable to pre-purchase if you will have more than 25kg, as excess baggage is charged at a much higher rate at the airport.

  8. I have booked malindo airlines for travelling COK to Bali on April 2nd 2019 ,but in the baggage policy it shows
    0 Pc checkin and 7kg cabin .
    How many weight i can carry ?

    1. Hi Vishnu, Looks like you may have booked the Super saver ticket, if you made the booking in the past month since mid February 2019. (SUPER SAVER: No baggage allowances.) These tickets are usually significantly cheaper than the others and they also won’t include a meal. You can, however, go in to manage your booking and purchase some baggage, which should still cost you less that the higher fare levels. You can also purchase food on board.

    1. If you are within your weight allowance, there should be no problem. We’ve done it before. You get 7kg carry-on allowance, regardless of your fare type..

  9. Hi,
    I want to purchase a ticket from KUL to Bali, however I’m guessing it is a super saver since it says no free baggage allowed. I’m just wondering if that means we can’t have the checked in baggage for free either; 7kg + Laptop bag

    1. Please check your itinerary. The amount of baggage will depend on the type of ticket and when you purchased it. Tickets purchased before the baggage allowance changed, stay as they were when you made the booking.

  10. EDITOR’S NOTE: Please do not use comments to request information about your specific baggage allowance on your booking – we are not airline representatives. Please refer to our article for general information and check your itinerary for your allowance. If you want to check or alter your baggage allowance, contact the airline directly. Any requests placed in the comments will be deleted.

    1. Hi,
      Your baggage allowance depends on your fare class – how much you paid for your ticket. The only type with no free baggage allowance is Super Savers. You will still get your 7kg hand carry allowance for all types of ticket.

  11. hello, im travelling from bdo to kul and i purchased the super savers ticket..
    which means no baggage allowance…
    Is the 7kg hand carry included in the ‘no baggage’ policy??

  12. Hi Leslie, I’m booking a Malindo Flight via Expedia to Kolkata from Perth which says ‘baggage not included’. Is this correct? If it is, how much am I expected to pay for a checked bag weighing 15 kgs. Thanks Mike

    1. Hi Mike,
      The new fare groups give the option of a no checked baggage ticket, which is cheaper. However, they do have other options which include various allowances. I suggest you check the different fares available and compare the pricing with the cost of adding the baggage separately. The bundled pricing is usually cheaper than adding baggage later.

  13. I have come yo perth Australia from delhi on 11th july3019 by milando airways with my wife Raju dhar amd are leaving for delhi via kualampur on 30th September 2019.
    Kindly let me know how much checked in baggage is allowed.

    With regards
    vinay mattoo and Raju dhar

    1. Hi Vinay, Your baggage allowance depends on your fare grouping and when you booked, since they have made some changes recently. Please check your original booking receipt.

  14. Hi,

    I have purchased a ticket to Kuala Lumpur from Labuan, via Skyscanner. I need at least 20kg baggage, but the site never gave me an option to purchase. Where else can I purchase baggage?
