Pirates, we have some travel news regarding the low cost airline Norwegian Air. They have, as of today, announced that they will be following in the footsteps of other low cost carriers like RyanAir and Wizz Air when it comes to their baggage rules.
From now on their fares will be split into 3 tiers:
- LowFare - Economy fare with allowance of 1 bag that fits under the seat in front of you - 30cm x 38cm x 20cm, max weight 10kg
- LowFare+ - Economy fare with allowance of 1 bag that fits under the seat in front of you (see LowFare) and 1 overhead cabin bag 55cm x 40cm x 23cm - max combined weight 10kg
- Flex, Premium & Premium Flex - Economy and other fares with both bags allowed, combined weight of 15kg
When do these rules come into play?
If you book a ticket as of 23rd January 2020, the above rules apply. If, however, your ticket was booked before this date the old rules (same as LowFare+) apply.
You will also be able to take 1 airport shopping bag on board with you with the new rules.
How much will it cost to add an overhead cabin bag?
Short haul flights - 7 euro one way
Long haul flights - 9 euro one way
The rules are explained here:
We know this can be frustrating for regular travellers, however, Norwegian are still going to be heading the charge for low cost airline tickets both across Europe and the US. For more information, visit their site here.
