Excess Baggage Redemption

Redemption Procedure

Members flying with China Airlines or Mandarin Airlines may redeem their usable mileage at airport check-in counters for part or all of excess baggage charges if their check-in baggage exceeds the baggage allowance. A qualified member has to fill out the "Consent Letter for Mileage Deduction" to authorize mileage deduction. 

Excess baggage fee will be collected by airport staff based on the system of free baggage allowance stated on your ticket (weight system or piece system). For weight system, 1 unit equals to 1kg; for piece system, 1 unit equals to 1 piece. Please refer to the charts below for required mileage for traveling from and to each zone:
