Jetstar introduces new baggage option to increase carry-on from 7kg to 10kg

Customers can now bring more on-board, with Jetstar offering the option to purchase three kilograms of additional carry-on baggage, increasing the total carry-on allowance from seven to 10 kilograms.

Starting from $13 on Starter Fares, the additional carry on allowance is available for purchase on from today for flights operating from 4 September 2018.

Jetstar Group Chief Customer Officer, Catriona Larritt said this initiative gives customers more choice.

“Customers told us that they would like the option to carry more on board and so we are pleased to be able to offer them the option to purchase an extra three kilos.

“The extra carry-on allowance is particularly useful for those travelling with a laptop or camera bag or those travelling on short trips with an overnight bag who are after a quick departure from the airport without a wait at the baggage carousel”.
