    Interline Journey

    General Information

    • Baggage Allowance determination and excess baggage charges calculation apply to baggage to be through checked from the point of departure to the point of arrival without stopover at any of the intermediate points. If passenger takes a stopover at an intermediate point, a new assessment of baggage allowance and baggage charges, if applicable, will be measured from the point of departure following the stopover.

      If you travel with additional weight or piece baggage which is considered as over carrier baggage allowance, the excess baggage charge shall be applied. THAI provides the amount of the charges varied in accordance with your baggage checked portion when you travel with THAI. If your journey and/or your baggage checked portion are comprised of more than one carrier, other carrier’s baggage rules may apply. 

    Interline Baggage Selection:

    Generally, a common baggage provision, IATA Resolution 302, is applicable to IATA airline members (including THAI). The resolution regulates which carrier’s baggage rules apply when your journey and/or baggage checked portion comprised of two or more carriers (Interline baggage provision). The IATA Resolution 302 is considered in accordance with the IATA Traffic Conference Areas.

    In order to facilitate the adjustment of fares, fees and other charges, IATA has divided the world into three main ‘Areas’. These Areas are called Area1, Area2 and Area3. They are regularly used in the interpretation of tariff rules and in the calculation of international air fares. Airlines sometimes refer to these areas as TC (Tariff Conference), TC1 (for Area1), TC2 (for Area2) and TC3 (for Area3).

    Under each Area there are smaller ‘sub-areas’ or ‘regions’ which, in the IATA context, may have a different meaning from that generally implied by the geographical term.

    Area 1 is composed of the whole of the Western Hemisphere.
    Area 2 is Europe, Middle East and Africa.
    Area 3 is composed of the whole of Asia and the neighboring islands (with the exception of the part included in TC2); Australia, New Zealand and neighboring islands and also the Pacific Islands (except those included in TC1).

     

    Determination of carrier’s baggage rule in accordance with your baggage checked portion

    • For travel between two or more Tariff Conference Areas, the carrier performing carriage on the first sector that crosses from one area to another on that checked portion determines the baggage rule.
    • For travel between Tariff Conference Sub-areas, the carrier performing carriage on the first sector that crosses from one sub-area to another on that checked portion determines the baggage rule.               
    • For travel within a Tariff Conference Sub-area, the carrier performing carriage on the first international sector on that checked portion determines the baggage rule.
    • For travel within a single country, the carrier performing on the first Operating Carrier on the checked portion determines the baggage rule.

    Note:

      Effective 01OCT14, if your travel involved a so called code shared flights, the carrier performing as the Marketing Carrier of the baggage checked portion determines the baggage rule, unless carrier publishes a rule stipulating that it will be the Operating Carrier.

     

    Travel to/from the USA

    In general, for passengers whose ultimate ticketed origin or destination is the United States and/or its territories, the baggage provisions selected at the beginning of the itinerary shall apply throughout the journey, regardless of stopovers.

    If THAI baggage rule applies on your journey to the United States/US Territories, it is also THAI baggage rule applies on the return though you makes a stopover en-route.

    In case of code-share flights that include a point in the United States/US Territories, the carrier performing as the marketing carrier determines the baggage rule.

    If your journey involves multiple airline partners, please be aware that baggage rules may vary. The baggage rules that apply for your journey may be those of our partner airlines. In some cases, they may apply their own baggage rule regardless of the code-share rules and rules for both outbound and inbound portion of travel. You may be charged for check-baggage fee if your journey originates in the United States/US Territories. Please contact their ticketing/reservation agents and/or read more about their baggage allowance and fee policies through their websites for further advice.

     

    Determination Related to Interline Baggage Rules for Canada

    The purpose of this determination is to establish the approach to interline baggage rule that air carriers should apply for tickets purchased on and after April 1, 2015, when participating in an interline itinerary issued on a single ticket, where the origin or ultimate destination is a point in Canada.

     

    Guidance of Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA)

    The agency determines that, for international itineraries involving multiple air carriers, to and from Canada, purchased on a single ticket issued on or after April 1, 2015, carriers should:

    • Apply a single set of baggage rules to the entire itinerary
      • When an itinerary involving multiple air carriers is purchased on a single ticket for travel to and from Canada, a single set of baggage rules should apply throughout the entire itinerary.
      • A single set of baggage rules will be applied throughout a passenger’s interlining itinerary issued on a single ticket where the origin or ultimate ticketed destination is a point in Canada. Regardless of stopover.
      • For international itineraries, including domestic segments of an international itinerary
    • Disclose the applicable rules on the Itinerary Receipt or e-Ticket.
