Air Jamaica announced Thursday that baggage regulations will be revised for passengers by October 14. As of this date, Economy Class passengers will be allowed two pieces of checked baggage and one carry-on piece. However, a fee of $25 will apply for the second checked bag. These regulations apply to checked baggage weighing up to 50 pounds each.
The revised policy will decrease the fee for overweight baggage from $75 to $50 for the first bag weighing 51 - 70 pounds. Excess baggage charges for flights within the Caribbean will increase from $80 to $125 per bag. For Lovebird Executive Class passengers, the policy remains unchanged as the airline continues to allow three pieces of checked luggage, along with one carry on bag at no charge.
