Great news for people who use economy seats for flying with Qatar Airways, they recently enhanced their baggage weight allowances from 20kg to 23kg per customer! That means 3 more kilos for goods you want to take back to Qatar as going home to the Philippines, Qatar Airways allows you 45kg.

You can try calling their offices here in Qatar. I don’t think it’s actually written.

Noel,
Qatar Airways allows you 45kg though it is not a written rule. You can call their offices to check.

However, from manila to doha, they impose a strict policy of 23kg.

Qatar Airways allows you 45Kg check-in baggage plus 7kg hand carry if traveling from Doha to Manila. Etihad offers you 40kg plus 7kg hand carry. However, coming back, both airlines require you to bring only 23kg baggage plus 7kg Hand carry. The airport in Manila is quite strict with this so be careful so you don’t iccur extra expenses.

@Mylene, it depends on what airport you’re departing and what are the allowed checked-in baggage for the airline on that airport. I do suggest you call Qatar Airlines in Frankfurt to make sure how much is allowed for your trip.

I don’t think they allow 40Kg going to Doha. I took an Etihad flight just last month back to Doha and they only allow 23 + 7 hand carry. They do allow 40Kg from Doha to Manila but not the other way around. Better check and call the local Qatar Airways office in Manila to be sure. I’m sure you would not want to spend so much money if your baggage is in excess of what is allowed.

Greetings!!! For the 45-kilo baggage allowance of Qatar Airways, is it allowed to divide this into 3 boxes? Help please….Tnx!!!

You should divide it as they only allow 32Kg per piece of baggage even if the total allowance is 45kg.

Regarding your question about baggage allowance, the usual allowed is 23 kilos ONLY. unless you are flying a trans Atlantic flight ( I.e. USA, Europe or vice versa) which allows you 2 bags at 23kilos each. But going to Qatar, it’s only 23 kilos total.
