Travelling with Qatar Airways after 01 September 2013? This is great news for you: Effective 01 September 2013, Qatar Airways will increase its checked baggage allowance on all routes worldwide. Economy weight allowances have increased from 23kg to 30kg while Business and First Class have each increased from 30kg and 40kg to 40kg and 50kg respectively. The number of bags remains the same and dependent on the type of ticket purchased. The increased weight allowance does not apply when travelling to points that are regulated by per-piece allowance.
