Singapore Airlines Baggage Policy – Fees & Allowance. Singapore Airlines separates their baggage policies/ fees into two categories: by weight (for most routes) and by piece (for all routes to/from the U.S.).
This is an important concept to be aware of when attempting to calculate your baggage expenses.
If you’re on a “by weight” route, it’s nice that Singapore Airlines calculates excess weight fees per kg vs. one hefty fee for any amount overweight.
All carry-on luggage must fit in the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you and adhere to the following requirements:
- Baggage Allowance for Economy Class passengers: 1 bag
- Baggage Allowance for First/Business Class passengers: 2 bags
- Maximum Weight for all classes: up to 7kg
- Sum of length, width and height of each piece should not exceed 115cm for all classes.
REMINDER: Bulkhead seats do not have underseat storage during take-off and landing.
Checked Baggage Allowance
Passengers traveling to to/from Brazil and the U.S.:
- Baggage Allowance: 2 pieces
- Maximum Dimensions: 62 linear inches/157 cm (length + width + height)
- Maximum Weight (Brazil): 70 lb/32 kg
- Maximum Weight (US): 51 lb/23 kg for Economy and 70 lb/32 kg for First Class/Suites

Excess, Overweight, Oversize Baggage Fees
Additional baggage charges are assessed each time you check in.
For example, if your journey takes you from Jakarta to Singapore to Tokyo to Los Angeles, you’ll be charged for:
• Three flight segments if you check in separately in Jakarta, Singapore and Tokyo
• Two flight segments if you check in separately in Jakarta and Singapore, or Jakarta and Tokyo
• One flight segment if you check in at Jakarta through to Los Angeles
The same weight and baggage size limitations apply to additional baggage as they do to free checked baggage.
If you have more bags than the permitted allowance or your bags exceed the weight or linear restrictions, you will be charged additional fees.
