EasyJet has revamped its checked luggage policy, adding a new lighter option and increasing the existing 23kg allowance.
The new 15kg allowance costs from £8.99 (although this can rise to as much as £29.99 depending on the route selected) and is only available to purchase online.
Meanwhile the existing 20kg option has been increased to 23kg, and costs between £13.99 and £33.99 when booked online, £37 when purchased at the bag drop desk, and £47 at the boarding gate.
The amended policy applies to new bookings only – customers who have already purchased a 20kg allowance for future flights “will keep their existing allowance and will still be able to add weight to their bags up to 32kg as per the prior policy”.
Customers remain able to pool their total weight allowance where they are travelling with friends or family on the same flight and booking.
