According to an official release from Malaysia Airlines (MAS), the national carrier of Malaysia has announced it will revise its baggage allowance on all domestic flights, booked and ticketed from 1 August 2018 onward. The airline’s reason for this change in luggage restrictions is to be more competitive in the domestic market.
The new regulations allow customers to take a maximum of 20 kilograms for check-in luggage and 7 kilograms for hand luggage in economy class. Other services such as in-flight entertainment and meals remain unchanged. The statement says that Malaysia Airlines will enforce these regulations for all domestic departures.
Malaysia Airlines will revise its allowance by 10 kilograms on domestic routes – currently, the airline still allows 30 kilograms of check-in luggage, on par with its international allowance policy.
