AirAsia no longer take bicycles as part of the “Sporting Goods” baggage
QUOTE: Sports Equipment Fee is charged for Golf, Scuba Diving and Surf Boards only. All other sporting equipment accepted as part of the baggage allowance.
This is very sad it now leaves only “Tiger Airlines” as the closest competitor, willing to offer a separate Bicycle option.
Even “maxing” out of the pre-paid baggage allowance it virtually impossible to now travel with a Touring Bike and equipment…
Many full price airlines we have travelled do not charge at all,
So sad they have no “green” policy with regard to bikes, I’m sure there is not that many bikes travelling, to have this need to exclude them. I am happy to pay them but no option to do it.
It is probably easier to get the sun to rise at midnight in KL than get them to consider bikes as part of the sports equipment…
I have enjoyed a few flights with AirAsia – without my bike.
