Aeroflot to Charge for Extra Luggage

With high fuel prices and competition squeezing profits, Aeroflot has become the latest international carrier to charge for extra luggage.

Passengers who travel with multiple bags — even if their combined weight is less than 23 kilogram limit for a single bag — will be subjected to a flat 100 euro fee.

Aeroflot had been charging passengers extra proportional to the weight of overweight bags. This new approach is presumably more profitable for the airline.

Just another reminder to read the fine print before you fly.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
