Baggage Policy

If you're flying with Singapore, you should know the airline's luggage rules to avoid any last-minute surprises or unexpected costs. This post will go through the Singapore baggage Policy in depth, including the allowable luggage size and Weight, over-baggage prices, and more.

Hand/Cabin Baggage Policy

All carry-on luggage must fit in the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you and adhere to the following requirements:

  1. Baggage Allowance for Economy Class passengers: 1 bag
  2. Baggage Allowance for First/Business Class passengers: 2 bags
  3. Maximum Weight for all classes: up to 7kg
  4. The sum of the length, width, and height of each piece should not exceed 115cm for all types.

NOTE: Bulkhead seats lack under-seat storage, so all carry-on and cabin luggage must be stored in the overhead compartment during takeoff and landing.

Passengers traveling to/from Brazil and the U.S.:

  1. Baggage Allowance: 2 pieces
  2. Maximum Dimensions: 62 linear inches/157 cm (length + width + height)

  5. KrisFlyer Elite Gold and Star Alliance Gold members are allowed one extra bag regardless of the cabin.

Excess Baggage
