Your checked baggage allowance is based on the weight or piece concept, depending on your final destination. When you book a flight with us, your free baggage allowance will be indicated on your ticket.
You are strongly advised against packing valuable and fragile items in your checked baggage, such as:
- Securities / negotiable papers
- Silverware / precious metals
- Money / jewellery / other valuable items
- Business / travel / identification documents
- Perishable items
If you’re carrying food items in your checked baggage, the same considerations apply as that for your cabin baggage.
Under the Weight Concept, each passenger is permitted to check in a total weight regardless of the number of suitcases. Passengers traveling together can also combine their allowed weights. The total weight depends on the class, elite status, type of ticket, flight origin and destination.
An infant is entitled 10kg of baggage allowance. If you are travelling with an infant, you can check in an item each from the following two categories:
- A fully collapsible stroller or pushchair
- Carry-cot or car seat
Under the Piece Concept, you are permitted to check in a certain number of suitcases with a per-bag weight of up to 23 kilograms for Economy Class, and up to 32 kilograms for Business or First Class. The allowed weight per suitcase and the number of suitcases depends on the class, elite status, type of ticket, flight origin and destination.
The sum of length, width and height of each checked baggage must not exceed 158cm (62 inches).
An infant is entitled to one piece of checked baggage, up to 23kg or 32kg, depending on your class of travel. If you are travelling with an infant, you can check in an item each from the following two categories:
- A fully collapsible stroller or pushchair.
- Carry-cot or car seat
If the first carrier on your booking is not Uganda Airlines, that carrier’s baggage policy may apply for the whole itinerary on a single ticket or conjunction tickets.
If another airline’s baggage policy applies to your booking (applicable to itineraries on a single ticket or on conjunction tickets), an additional baggage allowance can only be purchased from that airline. Please refer to the relevant websites of our partner airlines to review their specific rules.
Lithium batteries that are damaged, defective, or recalled for safety reasons are not allowed in checked baggage, carryon baggage, or cargo.
Please make sure that any sharp objects (especially needles, syringes, and other items needed for medication) are properly covered and secured to prevent injury to yourself and our Employees who care for your bags.
