Airlines Baggage Policy

Many airlines have made changes to their baggage policy recently, and it has affected travelers from the United States to Nepal and other parts of the world. Although most major carriers that come to Nepal still allow two pieces of luggage, domestic connecting flights and code-share flights have luggage limitations of one piece per passenger, and the luggage rule of the first flight is applicable.

Please see a few examples listed below:

  • For example if you have a Gulf Air ticket from Boston to Kathmandu (via London & Bahrain), the first leg of the itinerary from Boston to London is operated by Virgin Atlantic (VS) and hence Virgin Atlantic’s baggage policy applies and you will be charged extra for the second piece. However, on your journey back to the Boston you will be allowed two pieces free of charge since the first leg of the itinerary from Kathmandu to Bahrain is operated by Gulf Air.
  • Another example is if you are flying on Qatar Airways to Kathmandu and your journey starts from any city in the USA other than New York, Washington, and Houston you will have to pay the extra baggage charge. The extra charge for your second piece of luggage applies as you will be departing from your city (first flight) on United Airline, American Airlines, and Delta Airlines. However, on the return flight you will be allowed two pieces free of charge, as the flight will be operated by Qatar Airways.

Please refer to the table below for airlines specific details:
