Checked Baggage 

If your luggage's weight exceeds your ticket's allowance, additional costs will be assessed at the appropriate rates.

Air Niugini's checked baggage policy allows passengers to bring one piece of checked luggage on their flight, with weight and size restrictions varying based on the specific route and cabin class. The maximum weight allowance for checked baggage ranges from 23kg to 40kg, with excess baggage fees applied for any luggage exceeding the weight limit.

Passengers are advised to label their checked luggage with their name and contact information and to pack any valuable or fragile items in their carry-on luggage. The airline also recommends that passengers check their baggage allowance and any specific baggage regulations before their flight, as restrictions may vary based on the destination and other factors.

Prepaid Excess Baggage

For customers who believe their luggage will exceed the permitted checked baggage allowance, Air Niugini offers prepaid baggage. Purchases of prepaid baggage are made in increments of five kilograms, with a minimum of five kilograms and a maximum of forty-five kilograms (45kg) per person. Prepaid baggage is offered across the whole Air Niugini network and is subject to the following:

  1. Only flights operated by Air Niugini can use it.
  2. Must be purchased at the nearby sales office or online at least three hours (3hrs) before departure.
  3. Only excess luggage is applicable during check-in; prepaid baggage will not be available.
  4. No one piece of luggage may weigh more than 32 kg.
  5. When a flight takes off, and the corresponding flight coupon status changes to closed or flown, the prepaid baggage is no longer refundable and is considered used.
  6. Prepaid luggage cannot be transferred.
  7. There will be no reimbursement if there are residuals. Note: Once payment has been made, no refunds will be given. Therefore passengers must accurately estimate the total weight and pay the exact amount.
