AirAsia Xtra Carry On baggage solution has seen strong demand as travel — both leisure and business – has accelerated.
The AirAsia Xtra Carry On is a service that allows passengers to bring 14 kg of luggage onto a flight, allowing them to keep their valuables in sight at all times. Guests are permitted two pieces of carry-on baggage with a total weight not exceeding 7 kg for free.

AirAsia Philippines is the first and only airline in the country to provide this new cabin-baggage upsize option. All AirAsia reservations still come with a complimentary seven-kilogram hand-carry luggage allowance. Still, it is by far the most affordable check-in luggage allowance among all local airlines, starting at just Php 800 per 40 kg baggage.
According to a recent poll conducted end-2021 by AirAsia, the baggage allowance is the most important consideration for Filipinos traveling that year, as chosen by half of all respondents. Some 32 percent bought additional in-flight meals or snacks. Filipino travelers also purchase various goods, including travel insurance (27%) and seat assignments (21%).
“We’re here to provide you with a simple response as Filipinos ready to fly again and visit their favorite places,” explains AirAsia Spokesperson and Head of Communications and Public Affairs Steve Dailisan. “As a matter of policy, we at Air Asia always endeavor to develop new services that make our guests’ experiences more pleasant as they adjust to the new norm of travel.
As of April 22, AirAsia Philippines has reserved 559,298 domestic seats for the second quarter of 2022, an increase of 251 percent compared to the same period last year. According to the airline, this rise in bookings is due to increased demand for travel as more local destinations relax borders ahead of the summer season and national elections. Concurrently, for May and June of this year, the world’s best low-cost airline has a satisfactory booking rate for international flights to neighboring ASEAN countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and Singapore.
