There is good news for Philippine Airlines passengers concerning the free check-in baggage allowance for turboprop flights. PAL now gives higher free baggage allowance at 20 kgs for flights utilizing turboprop airplanes starting June 15. The previous allowance was at maximum of 10 kgs.
However, take note that the higher free baggage allowance in PAL does not extend to the Basco route.
Effective from June 15, 2022, all PAL domestic flights utilizing the De Havilland Dash-8 turboprop aircraft (except flights to and from Basco, Batanes) will offer up to 20kg Free Baggage Allowance (FBA) – a 100% increase from the previous maximum FBA of 10kg that has been in effect for several years.
The increased baggage allowance will allow more flexibility and convenience for domestic travelers, as well as result in a uniform standard for PAL domestic flights whether operated with jet or turboprop aircraft.
So, if you are asking how many kilos is the free baggage allowance in PAL for a domestic flight? The answer is now 20 kgs for all domestic flights of the airline except to and from Basco, Batanes which will remain at maximum FBA of 10 kg.
Passengers holding old and new tickets issued for travel on or after June 15 will be allowed to check-in up to 20kg on applicable booking classes (Economy Value and Economy Flex).
The new FBA will apply to PAL’s turboprop flights from their Manila, Cebu, Davao and General Santos hubs, including flights to Butuan, Cotabato, Catarman, Calbayog, Dumaguete, Antique, Siargao, Legazpi, Caticlan (Boracay), Busuanga (Coron), Iloilo, Tagbilaran (Panglao), Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Clark, Davao, Puerto Princesa, Tacloban and Zamboanga.
