Prepaid Extra Bags

If you need to take extra bags, it's smarter to prepay before you get to the airport.

When you want to take more baggage than your fare allows, Prepaid Extra Bags are the smartest and cheapest solution. If you wait until you get to the airport, you'll pay excess baggage rates that are much higher than the prepaid cost.

Prepaid Extra Bags can be added to your booking online up to three hours before an international flight or up to 30 minutes before a domestic flight.

Airpoints™ Elite, Gold and Koru members are entitled to additional baggage benefits at no charge. Please consider this before purchasing Prepaid Extra Bags.
