Buy excess baggage and travel with overweight or oversized Baggage

Among the many questions related to buying airline tickets online, the most common is: what size of suitcase can you check-in and what bag or backpack can you take with me as a handbag.

The cost of plane tickets varies depending on whether the price includes only hand luggage or whether the passenger is allowed to take one or two suitcases with him. When planning a trip, decide what to take with you, check which suitcase it all fits.

Alternatively, you can use a convenient service offered by Mango Airlines: Purchase of excess baggage.

The maximum weight allowance on board flights operated by Mango Airlines (included in their reservation), for baggage going in the hold is 20 kg. Baggage that does not correspond to this allowance will be billed at the current rate per kg in each direction.

In addition, no baggage over 32 kg will be accepted for transport.

Want to take more checked baggage than expected? Mango Airlines gives you the option of checking in extra baggage for a fee. If your baggage is very heavy or bulky, you may need to check it in as cargo.
