AirAsia Frequently Asked Questions

Does AirAsia include baggage in the fare?

Not with the cheapest fare option.

Bags can be added on during the booking process, or you can opt to upgrade to either the Value Pack (which includes 20kg of checked luggage, one meal, standard seats selection and baggage delay insurance) or the Premium Flex package (which includes 20kg of checked luggage, one meal, hot seat selection, baggage delay insurance, up to two flight changes, and express baggage and boarding).

The price of the packages changes depending on where you're flying. However, if you're likely to add on these extras, it may be worth it.

For example, we looked at a flight from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur and found that adding on a 20kg checked bag is $43 each way, while the Value Pack is $63 and the Premium Flex package is $136.
