Additional charges to check in baggage at the gate
Your baggage may be checked at the gate to ensure it is within our size and weight limits. If your carry on baggage exceeds size or weight restrictions at the boarding gate, the following additional charges apply as we will need to check in your baggage at the gate.
There are government limits to the amount of liquids, aerosols and gels that you can have in your carry-on baggage when you’re departing from an international terminal. Those limits also apply to domestic flights departing from an international terminal.
For up to date information visit the Australian Government’s Travel Secure list, Singapore Airport Guidelines or government regulations of the country you’re travelling from.
Some items are prohibited as carry-on baggage. These restrictions are determined by government and airport authorities. For restricted items see:
It’s your responsibility to understand these restrictions and put the items in your checked baggage. If restricted items are found they will be removed and not returned.
To ensure the comfort of all customers, Jetstar also prohibits the carriage and use of ‘knee defenders’ or any device which restricts the recline of another customer’s seat on board all Jetstar Group airlines.
If you’re travelling with hypodermic needles, please ensure you declare this at the screening point and, where possible, provide documentation or identification to confirm your medical condition.
Medication should have a professionally printed label that identifies the medication, or a manufacturer’s name or pharmaceutical label.
When you want to bring more than just your carry-on bags you’ll need to pay for checked baggage. Make sure your checked baggage is within size and weight limits so it’s safe to fly and understand how to avoid excess baggage charges.
To bring checked baggage all Economy Starter and Starter Plus passengers must purchase baggage allowance. You can purchase a 15kg, 20kg, 25kg, 30kg, 35kg or 40kg baggage allowance. Baggage allowance weights apply per passenger, per flight.
Starter Max passengers are automatically given a 20kg checked baggage allowance and can purchase up to an additional 20kg.
Business and Business Max passengers are automatically given a 30kg checked baggage allowance and can purchase up to an additional 10kg.
Your baggage allowance is given by combined weight, not by number of bags. As long as your bags have a combined weight within your allowance, bring as many as you like. No single bag can weigh more than 32kg.
Charges at the airport
If you haven’t added checked baggage to your booking and arrive at the airport with checked baggage you’ll be charged for the first 15kg of baggage allowance per passenger and then for every additional kilo after that at the per kilo rate.
If you have added checked baggage to your booking but arrive with more than your allowance you’ll be charged for excess baggage. Excess baggage is charged per kilo.
We can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to add excess baggage to your flight so it’s best to add baggage to your booking before you arrive. You’ll avoid the higher fees too.
If you have checked baggage in your booking but bring more than the allowance you will be charged a per kilo fee.
Connecting flights with a domestic and international leg will be charged at the international rate. Your per kilo fee will be applied to your whole journey.
The fees charged depend on your departure port. All charges are inclusive of GST/VAT and all amounts will be charged in the local currency of the applicable airport.
What to leave out of your checked baggage
Fragile items, computers, money, valuable documents, business documents, electronics, passports and precious metals and stones.
These items could become damaged if they’re included in your checked baggage and Jetstar will rely upon all available defences against any claim for damage, loss or destruction if this is the case.
Strollers, wheelchairs and bulky items
When you’re travelling with a young child or infant you can bring one of each of the following items per child or infant as checked baggage, free of excess baggage charges and regardless of fare:
- Stroller or pusher
- Porta cot and bedding
- Infant car seats
- Portable high chairs
Lock shut or secure strollers and porta cots to minimize risk of damage.
If you’re travelling with a wheelchair, Jetstar allows you to check-in your wheelchair or mobility aid required for your use free of charge, in addition to your checked baggage, provided that:
- Each piece does not exceed 32kg, except mobility equipment that can travel in the upright position in the free wheel mode (for example an electric wheelchair);
- Items above 32kg which cannot travel in the upright position in free wheel mode must be carried as freight at standard freight rates;
- The equipment must be for your own use and adhere to Jetstar’s aircraft wheelchair dimensions; and
- Only one motorised/electric mobility aid may be checked-in as part of this allowance.
