About Malaysia Airlines
Malaysia Airlines is the national carrier of Malaysia, offering the best way to fly to, from and around Malaysia, carrying 40,000 guests daily on memorable journeys inspired by Malaysia’s cultural richness. Malaysia Airlines embodies the incredible diversity of Malaysia, capturing its rich traditions, cuisines and warm hospitality onboard, while opening up more of Malaysia’s destinations than any other airline.
As a member of the oneworld® alliance, Malaysia Airlines and its partners offer a superior, seamless travel experience. Customers can earn Avios and tier points on any Malaysia Airlines booking.
In addition to the airport counter, Malaysia Airlines provides guests with several methods for flight check-in.
Airport kiosks are available at most Malaysian airports and at selected international destinations. Anyone travelling on an e-ticket may use these convenient devices. Kiosks will print boarding passes and bag tags. Once checked in, proceed to the bag drop-off counter if travelling with checked luggage.
Guests may check-in remotely from home or anywhere with an internet connection. Web check-in opens 48 hours before and closes 90 minutes prior to departure. Guests may select their seat and print off boarding passes.
Hand luggage allowance is determined by the class flown. Economy Class guests are permitted one carry-on piece while Business Suite and Business Class guests are permitted two pieces of cabin luggage. The maximum weight for carry-on bags is 7kg. Passengers with infants are allowed one additional 5kg bag.
The checked baggage allowance depends on the routing, ticket class and destination.
For most destinations, guests may check-in multiple bags up to a maximum weight limit. Economy Class passengers are allowed two bags not exceeding a total of 30kg (66lbs). Business Class passengers may take up to 40kg and Business Suite is permitted 50kg. For further information, please contact the airline directly.
Most sporting items and musical instruments are permitted and counted as part of the free checked baggage allowance. For bags exceeding maximum size limits, oversized bag fees will apply. Please check with your Flight Centre Travel Expert for specific sporting packing requirements and size limitations.
Pet containers are not included in the free baggage allowance and will incur an additional excess bag fee.
Restricted or Dangerous Goods
Dangerous goods are not permitted in carry-on baggage or checked luggage. These items are restricted as they may pose health and safety risks and may interfere with the safe operation of the aircraft. Restricted items include explosives and fireworks, flammable liquids, flammable gasses and solids, corrosive and radioactive materials, oxidizers and other toxic substances. Any questionable items should be brought to the attention of the check-in staff.
