Kenya Airways has reduced the baggage allowance on its intra-Africa routes to one bag per passenger. 

Previously, the airline allowed passengers flying in economy from one African country to another two bags with a maximum weight of 23 kilograms each. The allowance is now one bag, with charges applicable for extra luggage. 

“Kenya Airways will implement a new baggage policy that will entitle its guests to a 20% discount on any extra bag purchases up to 24 hours to departure. In addition to reduced extra baggage fees within intra-Africa flights, guests will be entitled to one free bag in the Economy Class cabin at a maximum weight of 23 kilograms per passenger,” read a statement by Kenya Airways.

The airline pointed out that the intra-Africa one bag allowance would not apply to economy-class passengers travelling to and from other continents. Business-class passengers still retain their allowance of two bags, at no additional cost, weighing a maximum of 32 kilograms per bag.
