Mobility Aids & Assistive Devices

Mobility Aid is defined as an assistive device that is used by individuals with mobility impairments such as cane and walker, crutch and wheelchair.

Assistive Device is defined as any piece of equipment that assists a passenger with a disability to cope with the effects of his or her disability. Such devices are intended to assist a passenger with a disability to hear, see, communicate, manoeuvre or perform other functions of daily life and may include medical devices and medications. Equipment used by a service animal (e.g. hamess, leash, vest) in conjunction with its work as a service animal is also an assistive device. However food is not equipment and therefore when tendered as carry on or check baggage, the standard size, weight, and baggage allowance limits may apply.

Mobility aids and assistive devices that are carried by the passenger can be accepted without charge as specified in the table below in addition to the baggage allowance, provided that the equipment is necessary for the journey.

 

From/To Destinations in the US Other Destinations
No limit on assistive devices and mobility aids in addition to the free baggage allowance One assistive device and two pieces of mobility aids per passenger in addition to the free baggage allowance.

For the passenger travelling on two or more sectors e.g. Manila - Hong Kong - Los Angeles where there are different baggage policies for mobility aids and assistive devices, the most generous policy shall apply to all sectors.


Most Significant Carrier (MSC) - For Multi-carrier Journey

The major change under this new rule Baggage Provisions Selection Criteria (Resolution 302) is to switch from following the baggage travel allowance and charges set and agreed on by the industry to following the allowance and charges of the Most Significant Carrier (MSC) in multi-carrier journeys. In addition, journeys originating from or with the furthest point being in the United States will be subject to another definition of MSC.

Most Significant Carrier (MSC) is:

The first carrier crossing the IATA Tariff Area (for travel across one Tariff Area).


Example:

Sector IATA Tariff Area Carrier
Sydney - Hong Kong (no stop-over) Tariff Area 3 to Tariff Area 3 Qantas
Hong Kong - London Tariff Area 3 to Tariff Area 2 Cathay Pacific

Cathay Pacific is the Most Significant Carrier.

      OR

The first carrier crossing the IATA Sub-area (for travel within a Tariff Area).

Example:

Sector IATA Sub Area Carrier
Sydney - Singapore (no stop-over) Southwest Pacific to Southeast Asia Qantas
Singapore - Hong Kong Southeast Asia to Southeast Asia Cathay Pacific

Qantas is the Most Significant Carrier.

      OR

The first carrier flying an international sector (for travel within a Sub Area).

Example:

Sector Carrier
Phuket - Bangkok (no stop-over) Thai Airways
Bangkok - Hong Kong Cathay Pacific

Cathay Pacific is the Most Significant Carrier.

Example:

Sector Carrier
Singapore - Bangkok (no stop-over) Singapore Airlines
Bangkok - Hong Kong Cathay Pacific

Singapore Airlines is the Most Significant Carrier.

IATA has divided the world into three Tariff Areas but within a Tariff Area there are a few sub areas:

IATA Tariff Areas Sub areas
North America, Central and South America, Hawaii USA, Canada, Mexico
Caribbean
Central America
South America
Europe, Middle East Europe
Middle East
Africa
Asia, Guam, Southwest Pacific Japan, Korea
Southeast Asia
South Asian Subcontinent
Southwest Pacific

For journeys originating from or with the furthest point being in the United States, exceptions imposed by the Department of Transportation of the US Government will be in place.

For instance:

Boston - Los Angeles - Hong Kong - Los Angeles - Boston Exception applies
Hong Kong - Vancouver - New York City - Hong Kong Exception applies
Hong Kong - Los Angeles - Toronto - Hong Kong Exception does NOT apply

If the exception applies:

  1. The MSC must be the Marketing Carrier for codeshare flights.
    Example: Los Angeles - Hong Kong travel with tickets bought from American Airlines but the flight is operated by Cathay Pacific.
    American Airlines is the Most Significant Carrier.
  2. The whole journey should be taken into account when determining the MSC even if the traveller checks out their baggage at one point during the journey.
