Thomsonfly charges for check-in

Low-cost carrier Thomsonfly has changed the baggage allowances for its passengers.

Yesterday (June 19th), the airline introduced a new set of allowances for passengers on a flight-only package. Now, flight-only passengers will have a 10kg free hand luggage allowance.

However, people wanting to check baggage into the plane's hold will have to pay a separate charge. The cost of checking in bags will depend on the route being flown.

Thomsonfly said that the move was "part of a phased roll-out for flight-only passengers on all its routes over the next few weeks".

Customers who know they will be checking in baggage can pre-book their luggage allowance and save up to 50 per cent of the cost.

The airline is the largest charter airline in the world and flies to over 20 European destinations. Its bases include Birmingham, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Coventry, Glasgow, Liverpool, London Gatwick, London Luton, and Manchester airports.
