Passengers flying economy class on Air France-KLM-Delta from India to USA, Canada and Mexico will now be allowed two pieces of check-in baggage per person with maximum weight being 23 Kilogram per baggage. This change is applicable for journeys originating in India, regardless of the place of ticket issuance, with effect from April 17, 2014.
Yeshwant Pawar, general manager, Air France-KLM, said, “We are constantly looking at ways to fulfill the needs of our customers and provide the best possible service to them. Revising our baggage allowance to North America is one such step in that direction. With our partners Delta and Alitalia, Air France and KLM operate the biggest transatlantic joint venture and offers more than 196 daily flights. So whether on business or holiday, our customers can explore North America seamlessly with Air France–KLM–Delta.”
In case customers wish to take excess baggage which is over the permissible limit, Air France-KLM will continue to offer 20 per cent discount on the excess baggage charges. There is no change to the per person baggage allowance for passengers flying in premium economy and business class.
Recently KLM has also introduced a new handy service called “Baggage Calculator” available on www.klm.com. This tool allows passengers to check baggage allowances quickly and easily based on the three criteria’s of origin, destination and travel class.
