Hello All,

I am planning to make a booking for my PR validation trip via Singapore airlines for the month of July,2012. I would like to know if anyone has traveled from India to Australia with them and offered extra baggage allowance (40kgs ??) for their first one way PR validation trip.

I know this has been discussed already in the forum for quite a lot number of times,but all of those discussion I found are dated around 2010/2011.

Starting this thread to check if anyone has any latest info on this regard or have any personal experience..

Also please share your experience on how you availed the offer from them ?

Thanks in advance.

I've booked my ticket with Singapore Airlines recently and emailed them regarding the extra baggage allowance on one way tickets from Delhi to Melbourne.
They reverted with a confirmation email stating that the baggage allowance has been increased to 40 kgs per passenger.
Simple process, no hassles.
Lemme know if this helps.

Cheers,

Sounds Great !!!

Could you please provide few more details regarding where did you book your tickets from ..any online portal or local travel agents ? I am asking this just in case if I needed to book from any specific website....

Whom did you email (email address) for the baggage allowance increase ?

Did they reissue new ticket with the updated baggage allowance ?

Which category of ticket did you book ? Economy, Business ?

Booked it through the Singapore airlines website as travel agents were not giving me a better quote.
After booking ur ticket, forward the ticket confirmation email to their local contact email address, which u'll get from their website, and they'll reply to your email with the updated baggage allowance.
No they do not issue a new ticket, they update your existing one.
I've booked an economy class ticket.

I booked my flight Mumbai-Sing-Adelaide on Singapore Air through an agent in Delhi. He gave me a quote 1000INR less than the website. He has given 40kg baggage (which appears on the ticket) and I also have got my seats selected! Seat selection is probably not possible from the website. Got a window seat on Mum-Sing route.

They don't seem to have a local contact email address for Hyderabad..Do you think sending it to Bangalore/Chennai email address would work ?

I am planning to book a ticket from Ahmedabad to Adelaide and there's a 16 hour stop @ Changi Airport(Singapore). does the airlines offer any transit accomodation in such a scenario?
Also, I read on the website that the maximum allowable baggage is 32kg. The local office told me that 40kgs is offered on one way ticket. so can this 40kg weight be in one bag or do we have to split it into 2 different bags?

I don't think it'll be a problem. You can call the customer care to confirm the same.

The luggage allowance is definitely 40kgs for Singapore airlines..infact the same would be printed on your ticket....with regard to the flights...since there is no earlier flight out of normally the airlines should offer the hotel and transit visa (if the wait is more than 7hours) but now-a-days (as I know) they are doing this ONLY for Business Class travellers.. for Economy travel you would have to check with Singapore airlines ...the Ahmedabad phone is +91 79 30012828 and the airport number is +0091 79 22858116...All the best

Changi airport has a lot to offer, you could take the city tour, a dip in the pool or get a massage. Lots to do!!
I have an 8 hr stop and am planning to take the city tour which would shave off a good 5 hrs of my stop.
