WHAT IS 

EXCESS BAGGAGE

All airlines have strict limits on the free baggage allowance which may accompany a passenger on their flight. This allowance is dependent on the ticket class traveled and where you are travelling to. If you exceed this weight by generally more than 0.5kgs, "excess baggage" charges will apply, and are strictly enforced by the airline. Excess baggage charges imposed by the airlines are expensive and are typically based on "1% of the full priced economy class airfare" to your destination. These are usually charged per kilogram, with some airlines charging as much as $70.00 dollars per kilogram of excess baggage presented at the airport check in counter.
