Scoot Airlines Baggage Policy Fees & Allowance. Scoot Airlines offers different ticket and fare types, which come with their own terms and conditions regarding baggage.
Here’s a rundown of the typical allowances and fees – do check your own ticket before you pack to make sure you understand the terms for your specific flight.
If you’re about to head off on a Scoot flight, you’ll want to know what you can take with you.
This guide covers all you need to know about Scoot luggage allowances, how to carry unusual items like sports and musical equipment, and how to buy more baggage if you need to.
Scoot Airlines Carry-On Allowance
Economy Class: Limited to 2 pieces including a laptop or handbag with combined weight not exceeding 10 kg.
ScootPlus: Limited to 2 pieces including a laptop or handbag with combined weight not exceeding 15 kg.
Regardless of class, cabin baggage cannot exceed dimensions of 54cm x 38cm x 23cm (total linear dimensions cannot exceed 115cm).
Before you get to the airport, make sure your cabin baggage does not exceed the permitted allowance, or you’ll be advised to check in your baggage at the airport and be subject to excess baggage fees.
Extra Cabin Bag option allows guests in Economy to purchase an extra 7 kg cabin baggage allowance, in addition to the standard 10 kg already provided.
Extra Cabin Bag is only available for B787 aircrafts.
Pre-purchase your Extra Cabin Bag when booking your flight online, and you’ll be ready to skip the waiting time at baggage claims and be the first ones out of the airport!
Scoot Airlines Checked Baggage Allowance
For each checked baggage, the sum of the length, width and height should not exceed 158cm (62 inches).
You can purchase up to 40 kg of baggage allowance online regardless of your choice of fare bundle.
In line with local Occupational Health and Safety rules, each of your checked bags cannot exceed 32 kg.
You’ll be required to repack your baggage if it exceeds 32 kgs.
You’re advised to pre-purchase your checked baggage allowance.
If you exceed your allowance during check-in, you’ll be charged for every kg in excess.
Taking sports equipment as checked baggage with Scoot
You can take sports equipment — or other specialist items like musical instruments — on a Scoot flight as checked baggage, as long as there’s space in the hold for them.
However, all items will need to be properly packed, and fit within your luggage allowance or the extra baggage allowance you’ve purchased.
Buying more baggage allowance with Scoot Airlines
If you want to carry more luggage that your ticket will cover, you can buy additional allowance when you buy your ticket, after purchase, or at the airport.
Note that additional baggage can be purchased up to 4 hours before your scheduled departure online by clicking on “Manage my booking” or by phoning the call centre.
You’ll find all fees for Scoot airline services here.
The exact costs will depend on when you’re buying the additional allowance, and how heavy your extra bags are.
To get the specific costs for your flight you’ll need to head to the Scoot website and use the fee calculator there.
As an example, here are some of the costs you may pay if you bought extra baggage for a flight from Melbourne to Chiang Mai:
|Additional luggage required||Scoot fee in AUD – Melbourne to Chiang Mai|
|Extra cabin bag – up to 7kg||Suspended till further notice|
|Extra hold bag – up to 20kg||Airport purchase: from $150 per journey|
Scoot Airlines excess or oversized baggage fees
You can buy up to 40kg of extra luggage allowance in advance.
Depending on the circumstances, you may need to pay excess baggage fees if your luggage is heavier than your allowance.
Check the details for your specific flight and situation to avoid hefty fees when you arrive at the airport.
Keep in mind that no individual piece of luggage can weigh more than 32kg (70 lbs) or have total linear dimensions of 158cm.
Here are the excess baggage fees for a flight from Melbourne to Chiang Mai, as an example
|Excess baggage||Fee chart|
|Per 1kg excess||$50 per journey|
|Per 3kg excess||$150 per journey|
|Per 5kg excess||$250 per journey|
It’s clear to see that these prices are quite high and a few kgs more packed in error will dent your wallet greatly.
It’s best to invest in a handheld scale for your luggage.
You could also weigh your bag at an empty stall at the airport before you drop off your bags at the Scoot counter.
All continuous positive air pressure (CPAP) models can be used on board our flights. For use during flight, your CPAP device must fit under the seat in front of you.
If your device is unable to fit under the seat, you may not use it during your flight but you can still carry it on board and stow it in the overhead baggage compartment.
CPAP will have to be self-powered using a gel or dry battery.
We may not be able to provide inflight power supply for such equipment.
Hence, please bring batteries to provide power for at least 150% of the flight time.
For example, for an expected flight duration of 10 hours, you will need to prepare a battery supply for 15 hours.
If each battery lasts for 5 hours, you will have to prepare 3 batteries.
