Previously, AirAsia allowed each passenger to carry only one piece of luggage with a total weight of 5kg to minimise social contact between guests' baggage

The company later changed the policy to allow each passenger to carry one piece of luggage with a total weight of 7kg.

Aside from the luggage policy, the company has implemented end-to-end contactless procedures and new safety procedures

Passengers are urged to wear face masks before, during, and after flights, as well as during check-ins and bag collections.

Those who do not wear a face mask will not be permitted to board the flight.
