On all flights, the airline introduces a new principle of determining the baggage allowance based on not only weight, but also the number of baggage pieces. In accordance with the new rules, that will apply to all passengers and flights, the carry-on baggage allowance will increase twice - from October 28, it will be possible to take one piece of carry-on baggage weighing up to 10 kg. Economy Beneficial fares, for passengers traveling light, will be luggage-free. Economy Easy tariffs will include 1 piece of baggage weighing up to 23 kg. Business class passengers will be able to carry up to 2 pieces weighing up to 30 kg each, depending on the fare level. The new concept of baggage transportation will allow to unify the rules of baggage transportation, bringing them in line with generally accepted international standards and making them more convenient for passengers.

Baggage allowance for each fare is indicated in the itinerary receipt, as well as on the airline's website during the process of fare selecting and ticket issuance. Passengers are advised to check their baggage allowance in advance for already issued tickets.
