Piece baggage concept excess baggage charges

On routes where the piece concept is applicable to your baggage, calculate your excess baggage costs using the following guidance:

Flights with no stopover

For flights with no stopover, you can calculate your excess baggage costs using the following steps:
  • In Table 3, find the region of the flight where the piece concept is applicable.
  • In Table 1, find the region of the second part of the flight.
  • The applicable charge per piece of baggage is in the place where these 2 regions meet in Table 4.
For example, let’s say you are flying from Buenos Aires to Baku without a stopover:
  • In Table 3, find out which region Buenos Aires belongs to (Piece Region 1).
  • In Table 1, find out which region Baku belongs to (Region 3).
  • In Table 4, find the applicable charge per piece of baggage at the meeting point of Piece Region and Region 3.

Flights with a stopover

You can calculate excess baggage charges for flights with a stopover in Turkey using the following steps:

  1. In Table 3, find out which region your departure airport belongs to and check that it is in the component area of Table 3. If your departure point is not on a Turkish Airlines flight network, it will be subject to interline pricing.
  2. Find the applicable charge per piece of baggage at the point where Turkey and your departure region meet in Table 4 and 5.
  3. In Table 6, find the baggage charge from Turkey after stopover to your next destination by looking up which region this destination belongs to.
  4. Add together all the charges for each part of your journey.

For example, let’s say you are flying from Buenos Aires to Kumasi, Ghana with a connecting flight via Turkey:

  1. In Table 3, identify which piece region Buenos Aires belongs to (Piece Region 1).
  2. In Table 4 and 5, find out the applicable charge between Piece Region and Turkey (160 USD).
  3. The absence of Turkish Airlines flight destination to the country or city you will travel to after your transfer flight to Turkey, will be evaluated within the scope of Interline. Find the applicable charge for interline on Table 6.
  4. By adding these 2 charges together, you can work out the total cost, per piece of baggage, for your flight from Buenos Aires to Ghana with a connecting flight via Turkey.

*Stopover: Where the waiting period for a connecting flight on a journey with more than one flight is 24 hours or more.
