Sichuan Air (3U)
Passengers of Sichuan Airlines will each be entitled to a free baggage allowance for both carry on and checked luggage. If passengers exceed the allowance, they will have to pay for the excess in terms of weight.
Passengers are allowed to bring one piece of luggage into the aircraft when flying with Sichuan Airlines. The luggage should meet both weight and size limits; in terms of size, the general guide is that the luggage should fit into the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of the passenger. If you want to be sure, however, your carry-on luggage should not weigh more than 10 kg and should not be bigger than this size: 20x40x55cm.
Passengers are provided free allowance for checked baggage; this is measured by weight. Usually, the limit is 20 kg maximum. Since Sichuan Airlines flies mostly to domestic routes, the weight limits are usually the same for all flights. They may vary, however, for the Sichuan Airline route going to Vancouver. The rate for excess baggage is 1.5% of the price per kg.
