NEW BAGGAGE POLICY YEILDS CRITICSM for ICA

Providenciales, 17 Dec 2014 – A new baggage policy at InterCaribbean Airways is drawing criticism as residents say there was no warning of the charges which now tax second and third bags automatically, even for domestic travel. Lots of questions flying across the counter at the domestic curbside check in at the Provo International on Monday when politicians and others of the travelling public were apprised of the new fees. There was no traditional warning about the changes… the information, well it was tweeted and posted to Facebook by InterCaribbean. No radio or TV announcements; paid or otherwise… no media release and no direct email to customers that we spoke to about the new move by the indigenous airline company.

As for what the new baggage policy is… well if you are travelling within the TCI or within Jamaica; your first checked bag is free, your second checked bag up to 50lbs or 62 inches draws an automatic $25 charge; if the bag goes over the specifications there is more money to pay, $20. The third bag is charged $50 and overage on weight of your baggage will also cost you. When it comes to the international flights you will pay as much as $100 for a third bag; $75 for that second bag – these, again are automatic.
