EVA Air has a fairly generous baggage allowance, but don’t get caught out on overweight checked baggage — this is charged by piece, so the opportunity isn’t there to pay for just a few extra pounds.

1 standard carry-on bag: Free for economy class passengers
2 standard carry-on bags: Free for Royal Laurel, Premium Laurel, and business class passengers

    I’m traveling to the Philippines, what’s the weight allowance for excess baggage?

    • Hi Lilian, in order to help you with your question, you’d have to give us some additional information like where you’re flying from, what fare type you purchased, etc. We don’t have enough details to answer your question as it stands.

      • Lilian Dela Rosa · May 8, 2019 · Reply

        I’m flying out from Seattle on an economy class ticket.
        The reason why I am asking is I might have additional/excess baggage. Does it need to be 50 lbs too?

        • Hi again Lilian, EVA Air states that Economy travelers on routes to/from the U.S. are slotted into their “piece concept” for transpacific routes. This means you should be allowed two checked bags free of charge (as stated above).

          When it comes to excess fees (you can find EVA Air’s policies here), if you are asking about bringing a third bag, the pricing on extra pieces of luggage is determined by zones.

          Again, as you can see in the table above, on routes from the U.S. West coast to/from the Philippines each extra piece of luggage should cost $115. The limit for this bag will also be 50lbs before incurring an additional excess charge for the baggage to be overweight (no bags over 70lb/32kg will be accepted).

          If you are inquiring about one/both of your original 2 complimentary checked bags being overweight, the charge should be $32 per bag that is over 50lbs, keeping in mind no bag is allowed to exceed 70lbs/32kg.

        I’m booked on Economy flight from Vienna to Phil’s on Eva Air with 30kg free check in baggage allowance. I’m planning to purchase prepaid baggage allowance. Upon inquiry a 20kg one piece baggage cost USD1,050. I wonder why it was this much.

        • Catherine Luther · September 5, 2019 · Reply

          Hi Yolanda,

          Did you enquire directly with the airline? According to Eva Air’s excess baggage charges a 1 x 23 kg bag from the east coast U.S. to Europe would cost $180.

      Hi. I will travel from Toronto, Canada to Ha Noi, Viet Nam in July. However, my flight is a joint venture flight between Canada Air and Eva Air. And I have 2 stops at Chicago and Taipei. Can I have an overweight luggage (29kg) and how much charges for it?

      • Catherine Luther · May 22, 2019 · Reply

        Hi Phuong,

        Is the Air Canada portion of the flight from Toronto to Chicago only, with Eva Air operating the other 2 flights? Did you book directly with Eva Air with the entire flight on one booking? Finally, what cabin are you traveling in?

  2. Shasha · May 11, 2019 · Reply

    Just to clarify, I will be traveling from Canada to Philippines in Economy class with 2 bags. What if 1 bag will exceed weight of 26 kgs. How much I will pay for excess weight per baggage? Please let me know. Thanks.

    • Catherine Luther · May 13, 2019 · Reply

      Hi Shasha,

      Firstly, be aware that the weight allowance for economy class is actually 23kg per bag not 26kg. As flights to/from Canada work on the piece allowance, you are not able to purchase extra weight. You would need to purchase an additional bag and the cost depends on whether you’re flying from east or west coast Canada. East coast Canada would be USD130 per bag and west coast Canada would be USD115.

    I would like to know the check in bag allowance for international flight, Chiang Mai, Thailand, to Vienna, Austria. Not sure if it is free or has an additional fee? It says…carry on free…check in 30 kg…but is the 30 kg free? Also part of the flight is operated by Bangkok Air, do they have the same rules? Thanks in advance for your time and kind help 🙂

    • Catherine Luther · May 13, 2019 · Reply

      Hi Cyrus,

      If your ticket states 30kg of checked baggage then this would be your free allowance. Your carry-on allowance would be in addition to your checked luggage allowance. If your flight was booked on one ticket, then the luggage allowance would apply for the most significant carrier (Eva Air).

      Hope this helps!

      • Daniel · August 2, 2019 · Reply

        Hi Erin,
        Your information is really useful. I’m going to travel from the US to Vietnam and my carry-on is 17.5 lbs which exceed the limit by 2.5lbs. Is there any problem with this?
        Thank you very much.

        • Hi Daniel!

          If your carry-on bag is overweight then you will have to check it and pay the designated checked baggage fee.

          Thanks for reading!

    We are leaving from Heathrow to Bangkok. Our ticket said 30kg each so does this mean we have to take 3 cases maximum weight per case 23kg to a maximum of 60kg for 2 of us? And what is our hand luggage entitlement for each person?

    • Catherine Luther · May 20, 2019 · Reply

      Hi Hassadee,

      You would have 30kg of free luggage per passenger and the heaviest a bag can be with Eva Air is 32kg. So you could take 1 x 30kg bag each or 2 x 15kg bags each. There is no limit to the number of bags you are permitted to distribute your weight allowance across. This page on Eva Air’s website suggests that a single bag should not exceed 23kg but this is actually not stated on their baggage allowance page as a compulsory requirement for weight concept allowances.

      In terms of pooling your weight between the two of you, Eva Air does not cover this within their baggage terms so you would be best to enquire directly with the airline. I’m sure you would be fine, but the last thing you want is an excess baggage fee as Eva says one of you has brought over your free allowance.

      Hand luggage allowance is 1 standard carry-on bag (9” x 14” x 22″ 15kg) and one personal item (16” x 12” x 4”) per economy passenger.

      Hope this helps!

  5. Marie · May 25, 2019 · Reply

    Hi, I’ll be leaving from the Philippines to Seattle… I’d like to know if it’s possible if I could get over 23kg two of my check-in bags and I don’t know how much will I need to pay at the airport in PH?

    • Hi Marie, this depends on which fare type you have purchased. If you have purchased a standard economy ticket, each bag weighing over 23kg should cost you an extra USD32/CAD41 or other equivalent local currency. Hope this helps!

  6. Murdo · May 26, 2019 · Reply

    HI Erin,

    I’m considering taking a one way trip from Incheon (Seoul) to Paris in economy class on Eva.

    I am not really sure what the allowance is. I’m hoping to take 2 bags at 23kgs. each and am wondering how much the second one would cost? There is a slightly confusing table above and the different zones involved and the rest of it.

    I would be immensely appreciative if you could shed any light on this.

    Thank so much.

    Kind regards,


    • Hi Murdo, we’re actually in the process of getting this article updated as you’re correct – it lacks some important information!

      I went ahead and looked on Eva Air’s website on baggage allowance and it appears your route would utilize their “weight concept”. If you’ve purchased an Economy fare, it looks like your weight allowance will depend on which type of economy fare you purchased – plus (35kg total), standard (30kg total), basic (30kg total), or discount (20kg total).

      Since we are not Eva Air, for 100% confidence in your allowance, I would suggest calling their customer service and inquiring with them directly!

  7. Hi, I have a few questions.
    I am traveling from Vietnam to Canada, so now I will come back to Vietnam. I want to buy baggage but I don’t know how much? Can you help me, please? Thanks.

    • Hi Tina, I’m afraid I’m a bit confused here. I can’t help look into how expensive baggage will unless you know how much you want to bring… we would also need to know what fare class you purchased (economy, business, first, etc) as well as your airports in order to help you out…

    Hi, I’m Le,
    I’m traveling from SF to Vietnam. My Fare type/cabin is Economy. I see on EVA air that it will only charge $32 extra for overweight (less than 70 pounds) baggage. So, is it going to charge me only $32? One of my friends came across the same situation and end up pay more than $100, so I was kind of confused. One of my baggage is 65 pounds so I wonder If I have to pay more than $32?
    Thank you

    • Catherine Luther · June 9, 2019 · Reply

      Hi Le,

      As you’re flying from the United States, your checked baggage allowance is based on the piece concept, with excess baggage charged for an entire piece of additional luggage, not charged per kilogram. If you’re traveling in economy with a piece that exceeds 50 lbs, then you will be charged $140 USD from San Francisco to Vietnam.

  9. Julia Anderson · June 8, 2019 · Reply

    I am travelling economy Seattle to Taipei and see the fee for an extra bag. I am willing to pay the extra fee but I need to pay cash as I am leaving the US and do not have a credit or debit card. If I have exactly $115 is that ok?

    • Catherine Luther · June 9, 2019 · Reply

      Hi Julia,

      When it comes to paying cash for excess baggage, every airline and departure airport has their own rules, so we advise you contact Eva Air directly to enquire about the policy for Seattle airport.

          Hi Jen, where are you flying from? And what type of ticket do you hold? You will see from the table above that there are many options that would determine your checked baggage allowance.

          • Hi
            I booked an economy fright from Chicago to Bangkok and bought a separate ticket from Bangkok to Vientiane (Laos). I’ll buy extra luggage and it indicates that is zone 2. My question is, are they going to check through my luggage with the fee 140 or do I still have to pay extra for Thai Airways?

          • Catherine Luther · August 21, 2019

            Hi Vivi,

            If you are flying on 2 separate airlines, then the excess charges will most definitely apply for each airline. If you have booked two separate flights with Thai Airways, then this will depend on whether the airline checks your luggage through to your final destination. They are not obligated to do this if you have booked the flights separately. Give Thai Airways a call to check their policy on this.

    Because I see two different answers I’ll ask mine:
    Traveling from LAX to Vietnam on Economy: What is the cost of my checked bag if it is over 50lbs but under 70lbs? Is it $32 or $140? And would a third bag be $140?

    Thank you!

    • Hi Samantha, if you booked Basic, Standard, or Economy Plus (i.e. anything except ‘discount’) then you should be allowed 2 bags up to 50lbs free of charge flying from the U.S. to Vietnam since this applies to their “Piece Concept”. (You may have been looking at Piece & Weight which is why you were confused with two answers.)

      For each bag that is over the 50lb limit, you should be charged $32 per leg of the flight (i.e. this would end up being double if you are flying round trip).

      If you want to check a third bag, it should cost you $140.

      *According to EVA Air’s website, it appears you can get a 10% discount on these fees if you pre-pay online prior to your flight. Hope this helps!

      (As a side note: We say “should” here because we are not EVA Air and as such, cannot 100% confirm these are the prices you will pay – we simply do the research on their website in the same way any other individual would. If you want an absolute, verified answer, we suggest calling EVA Air’s customer service and inquiring with them directly.)

      Hi Tue,

      If you’re flying economy then you are able to purchase a third 50 lb bag for $140. If you take a heavier bag then you will also be charged an overweight fee (in addition to the extra bag fee.)

    Please tell me can I take a flat TV as one of my luggage it is 67 inches in dimension and how much I have to pay if I will take it as an extra piece of luggage (not the 2 pieces allowed). I have booked a premium economy on EVA from Los Angeles to Manila.
    Thank you

    • Hi Elizabeth, unfortunately, EVA Air doesn’t list anything about their policies on TVs as checked baggage on their website. Additionally, since we ourselves are not EVA Air (we simply find our information from what they list online), we cannot comment on their specific policy on this. We suggest you call their customer service line to inquire with them directly.

      If you are allowed to check this item and you plan to check it in addition to your free baggage allowance, it appears LA would be Zone 5 and the Philippines is Zone 1 so you should be charged $115 for this extra baggage. Additionally, since it is over their max linear dimensions of 62″, you’ll likely also be subject to their ‘oversized baggage’ fee which is $100. So, you’re likely looking at ~$215 to take the TV if it’s in fact allowed.

      Note, if you pre-pay on their website, you may be able to get a 10% discount on this fee.

    I’m flying from Osaka to Toronto on a standard economy ticket, but I will probably have one overweight luggage, so will I be charged the price of one excess baggage + additional fee ($200CAD+41) or just the $41CAD? Because I was about to purchase prepaid excess baggage but the fine print said it did not apply to oversized or overweight baggage.

    • Catherine Luther · July 30, 2019 · Reply

      Hi Michelle,

      If you mean that 1 of the 2 pieces in your free checked allowance will be overweight, then you would be charged USD 32/CAD 41. If you mean you are bringing a third bag that will be overweight, then the fee would be USD 155/CAD 200 + USD 32/CAD 41.

      Although we cannot confirm 100% as we’re not Eva Air, this is how we have interpreted the information presented by the airline – $32 for each bag that weighs over 50lbs and less than 70lbs. However, as this states an ‘Additional fee’ you may want to give Eva Air a call to clarify or log in to your booking online to check pre-paid luggage fees.

      Hi Tu Anh,

      Eva Air allows passengers to bring a standard carry-on and a personal item. The maximum dimensions for the personal item is 4” x 12” x 16” and the airline may use baggage sizers at the airport. These are to ensure the item can fit under the seat, so although your box does not exceed the total linear dimensions, be prepared to check the item if it doesn’t fit in the bag sizer.

        Thank for the information. So will the box fit the bag sizer or is there any way that I can check if it fits or not? I don’t want to leave my box behind.
        Or can I carry the stuff inside the box by a nylon-bag? It will properly fit the bag sizer.
        Thanks for your time.

          Unfortunately I cannot tell you whether your box will fit inside the bag sizer. It’s up to you whether you bring a box or a bag with your personal items, but if you want to guarantee that they will be allowed in the cabin then you will need to ensure that they do not exceed 10 cm x 30 cm x 40 cm / 4” x 12” x 16”.

    Hi, I have a flight with Eva Airline from Kuala Lumpur to Paris with a layover in Taipai. I am in Premium Economy and I would like to know how many bags I can check. Can I check 2 bags for 17,5kg each or I can only check one bag for 35kg ?
    Thank you for your reply

      Hi Emma,

      This route with Eva Air uses the weight concept and you are allocated 35 kg of weight that you can distribute across multiple bags. So you could have 2 bags of 17.5 kg each.

    I think I asked the wrong person on this site…sorry.

      Thanks Ray! We do try to reply as quickly as possible to help our readers 🙂

      Unfortunately, I can’t help on this one and I’m not sure you would even get an answer from Eva Air on this as this would be dependent on the other airlines. It might still be worth giving Eva Air a call to see if they can provide any reassurances.

    A blessed day to everyone!
    I already purchased RT ticket economy with Eva Air in going to Cebu, Philippines from Christchurch, New Zealand this coming December 19, 2019, with my husband.
    I am asking how much it costs for another extra baggage of 30 kilos? Looking forward to hear from your reply soon.
    Many thanks with kind regards.

      Hi Lucia,

      That route would work on the weight concept, so additional weight is charged by the kilogram rather than by piece. For your route, Eva Air charges $30 per kilogram, so 30 kg of additional weight would cost you $900. As we’re not Eva Air, we can’t confirm this for you 100%, but this is the information we have sourced from the airline’s website.

    I am flying from Vienna to Taipei with one stop in Bangkok. My ticket is economy class. I am allowed to have 30 kg as weight. My question is: is it possible to divide them in two bags each 15 kg. Or do i have to take only one baggage?
