  • For infants not entitled to a seat, a fully collapsible stroller/pushchair, or infant carrying basket, or car seat can be checked as baggage or be accepted as a carry-on in the passenger cabin subject to the availability of space. If the stroller is checked, please remove the stroller accessories to avoid loss.

Itineraries including flights operated by other airlines (connection flights or code share flights)

According to IATA Resolution 302, a step-by-step process determines which carrier’s rules apply for an interline journey, where, for each checked portion

  • If the published baggage provisions among all participating carriers are the same; these provisions will apply.
  • Where one or more published baggage provisions differ between participating carriers, apply any common provisions and where provisions differ, the published baggage provisions of the “Most Significant Carrier” (MSC) apply. If this is a codeshare flight, apply the provision of the marketing carrier unless that carrier publishes a rule stipulating that it will be the operating carrier.
  • If the MSC does not publish its provisions, apply the rule of the Check-in carrier.
  • If the Check-in carrier does not publish its provisions, apply the Operating carriers’ provisions sector-by-sector.

Certain examples

Example 1: Taipei-{BR}-Bangkok(stopover)-{XX}-Frankfurt(non-stopover)-{YY}-Copenhagen

In this example, the journey is broken up by a stopover in Bangkok. Therefore, there are two sectors and each sector has a Most Significant Operating Carrier. From Taipei to Bangkok, EVA Air is the Most Significant Operating Carrier and the baggage policies of EVA Air will apply to this sector. From Bangkok to Frankfurt, Carrier XX is the Most Significant Operating Carrier as it operates the geographically longer stretch from Bangkok to Frankfurt. The baggage policy of Carrier XX will apply to the entire sector from Bangkok to Copenhagen.

Example 2: Sydney-{BB}-Brisbane(non-stopover)-{CC}-Taipei((non-stopover)-{BR}-Heathrow

In this example, there is one Most Significant Operating Carrier because there are no stopovers on the journey. EVA Air is the Most Significant Operating Carrier as it is operating the geographically longer stretch from Taipei to London. Therefore, the baggage policies of EVA Air will apply from Sydney to London.

According to the Section 399.87 requirements by the U.S. Department of Transportation (US DOT), for passengers whose ultimate ticketed origin or destination is a U.S. point, U.S. and foreign carriers must apply the baggage allowances and fees at the beginning of a passenger's itinerary throughout his or her entire journey. For example, if a passenger’s itinerary is Houston-Los Angeles-Taipei: United Airlines flight from Houston to Los Angeles and connecting EVA Air flight from Los Angeles to Taipei, then United Airlines’ baggage policy should be followed, including the return itinerary Taipei-Los Angeles-Houston.

In the case of code-share flights that form part of an itinerary whose ultimate ticketed origin or destination is a U.S. point, U.S. and foreign carriers must apply the baggage allowances and fees of the marketing carrier throughout the itinerary to the extent that they differ from those of any operating carrier. For example, if a passenger’s itinerary is Houston-Los Angeles-Taipei, the 1st marketing carrier is EVA Air from Houston to Los Angeles and connecting EVA Air flight from Los Angeles to Taipei, then EVA Air’s baggage policy should be followed, including the return itinerary Taipei-Los Angeles-Houston.

So if passengers whose ultimate ticketed origin or final destination is a U.S. point, the free baggage allowance for the complete itinerary shall follow the exceptional rules governed by US DOT and determined by the first marketing carrier. The first marketing carrier has the option to use the MSC methodology to determine which carrier’s baggage allowance and fees to apply.

Effective April 1, 2015, the Canadian Transportation Agency defined international journeys to/from Canada to include journeys where travel contains more than one country and the journey origin, destination, or farthest checked point is within Canada. It follows closely the same principles as what has been laid out by the US DOT. The Agency’s Decision is consistent with the United States Department of Transportation’s (U.S. DOT) baggage rules requirements, thereby providing for a harmonized North American approach to how baggage rules should be applied. Moreover, it can prevent passengers from facing different baggage policies and baggage fees which create confusion and complaints.

When determining whose rules apply, use the rules of the first marketing carrier on the journey provided the first marketing carrier is specified in the list of CTA carriers filing general rules tariffs to/from Canada. You may contact your travel agent, check our interline partner's website, or contact EVA AIR ticketing offices for details.

When a passenger holds separate tickets during travel

According to the IATA’s regulations, it is not necessary for airlines to provide baggage check-in services to a passenger’s final destination when he/she is holding separate tickets. If there are 2 separate tickets, then there are 2 separate contracts of carriage. Airlines have announced that they will not provide a baggage check-in service for separate tickets. EVA Air will tag your baggage to the destination of the EVA Air ticket(s) only. When you arrive at the airport, please claim your baggage and go to the next carrier’s check-in counter to check in again. Thank you for your understanding.

For passengers who hold separate tickets (one is by piece concept and the other is by weight concept), the baggage allowance shown on the tickets should be applied separately.
