Premium Economy Class passengers are allowed two pieces of deposit baggage that must not exceed 23 kg on routes to Northeast Asia, Western Europe, Australia and Americas. For the Hanoi – HCM City flights, they are permitted with one piece of a maximum weight of 32 kg.

For hand baggage, Economy Class flyers can carry one piece of baggage weighing no more than 12 kg while Premium Economy Class and Business Class travellers are able to bring two pieces with a maximum combined weight of 18 kg. Under the old policy, the airline only accepts carry-on baggage weighing no more 7kg each.
