When flying Norwegian Airlines, checked baggage is charged per item per one-way, and rates will vary depending on your itinerary.
The trick to saving primarily comes with booking your baggage online before reaching the airport, which you can do up to 6 hours before departure. You can also become a Norwegian Reward member and use points to pay for extra baggage.
