AirAsia has changed its cabin baggage policy back to its pre-Covid-19 allowances. Effective 7 July, passengers are once more allowed one piece of cabin baggage and another laptop or small bag, not exceeding a total of 7kg in weight.

Earlier on 27 April 2020, AirAsia sent out an email stating that it would be reducing its cabin baggage allowance from 7kg to 5kg, as well as limiting each guest to only one small bag not bigger than 40cm x 30cm x 10cm. The budget airline explained that this change was intended to facilitate social distancing, especially during embarkation and disembarkation.

However, on the following day, AirAsia released a statement saying that the cabin baggage allowance would be maintained at 7kg after all, although passengers were still only allowed one piece of carry-on luggage under the smaller size restrictions; this was the cabin baggage policy in place until the latest change today.

Under the newly reinstated cabin baggage allowance, you will be allowed to carry one cabin bag of dimensions 56cm x 36cm x 23cm and one laptop bag or small bag not exceeding the size of 40cm x 30cm x 10cm. According to AirAsia, this update to its cabin baggage allowance comes as the demand for air travel has picked up.
