Air Transat’s first checked bag policy for U.S. aligned with other carriers

MONTREAL — Clients now purchasing Air Transat’s Economy Class fare for travel to the United States as of Nov. 1, 2015 will be charged $25 for a first checked bag, aligned with the baggage allowance policies of other Canadian carriers.

The maximum weight of the baggage will increase from 20kg to 23kg. Transat’s no-fee policy for checked bags for all other destinations in the South and Europe remains unchanged.

Travellers who book a cruise departing from the U.S. will continue to be able to take advantage of the 25kg luggage allowance, free of charge. Clients who purchase Option Plus for extra privileges in Economy Class are entitled to one piece of luggage with a total weight of 28kg when travelling to the U.S. Option Plus also includes seat selection as well as priority check-in, boarding and baggage handling and other special perks onboard.

Club Class passengers can take advantage of a generous baggage allowance of two pieces of luggage with a total weight of 40kg when travelling to the U.S. as well as complimentary seat selection, wider leather seats and more.

The new first checked bag rates will apply to all of Air Transat’s destinations in the United States, including Orlando and Fort Lauderdale in Florida and Las Vegas in Nevada.
