Air Transat Airlines will charge for first checked bag to US

travellers purchasing Air Transat’s Economy Class fare for travel to the US as of November 1, 2015 will be charged $25 for a first checked bag. 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.
Transat says the move aligns its baggage policies with the baggage allowance policies of other Canadian carriers.

Travellers who book a cruise departing from the US 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 US.

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 US 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 US.

Terms, conditions and restrictions apply; pricing, availability, and other details subject to change and/ or apply to US or Canadian residents. Please confirm details and booking information with your travel advisor.
