British Airways has announced doubled checked-in baggage allowance for World Traveller passengers travelling from India and Pakistan to the UK this winter.

An extra piece of checked baggage weighing 23 kg is available for all bookings made on all flights operated from across the two countries including Lahore.

The new combined 46 kg checked baggage allowance is ideal “for families or those who are travelling over the winter months, with extra items like seasonal shopping, sporting or photography equipment.”

Moran Birger, head of sales, Asia Pacific and the Middle East at British Airways said:
“2020 has been a difficult year for our customers and during the winter period we want to help relieve the strain, so we are pleased to be able to make a small gesture to allow our customers to carry more, particularly at a time when we know people are visiting their families.”

Indian routes under British Airways’ network include Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai. Routes from Pakistan include Islamabad and Lahore. The routes to the UK include London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast City, Jersey, Newcastle and Inverness.
