Baggage Policy

Thai AirAsia has different policies for carry-on baggage and checked baggage.

Carry-on Baggage

All Thai AirAsia passengers (except for infants) are permitted to carry on board two pieces of baggage, comprising of:

One cabin bag with a maximum size of 56cm x 36cm x 23cm and that must fit in the overhead storage compartment of the aircraft.

Either a handbag (purse), laptop bag, or a small bag with a maximum size of 40cm x 30cm x 10cm that must fit under the seat in front of the passenger.

The total weight of both items must be a maximum of 7kg (15.4lb)

Checked Baggage

For Value Pack, Premium Flex, and Premium Flatbed fares and packages, checked baggage allowance will be included on your fare.

There is a range of checked baggage allowances for passengers to book if they need to take more luggage. They are available in the following sizes:

  • 15kg (domestic flights within Thailand only)
  • 20kg
  • 25kg
  • 30kg
  • 40kg

It is recommended that passengers ensure that they pre-book their checked baggage allowance before travelling since checked baggage fees at the airport are the highest.

Baggage that exceeds the booked amount will be charged at the most relevant weight bracket.

Sports Equipment

Sports equipment, such as golf equipment, bicycles, surfboards, diving gear, and skis/snowboards have specific packing instructions. Passengers are able to pre-book sports equipment online and a special sports equipment fee applies.

Cabin Classes

Thai Airasia has 2 different cabin classes - Economy and Business class.

Economy Class

Economy Class is the low-fare option.

Economy Class Facilities

For a fee, in-flight meals, entertainment and lounge access is available.

What are Economy Class Seats Like?

Business Class

AirAsia’s ‘Premium’ class is more than what you would expect from a premium economy ticket and much closer to what might be expected from a business class seat

Business Class Facilities

Priority check-in and boarding are available as well as lounge Access. A drink and hot towel will be provided when you take your seat on board the plane. A complimentary meal is served during your flight.
