Budget airline Jetstar has cut the weight of its carry-on baggage allowance from 10 kilos per person to 7 kilos per person effective Tuesday 25 November.

The new rules carry a hefty penalty for bags that exceed these new limits. Overweight fees for domestic flights will attract a $50AUD penalty while international travellers will face a $160AUD charge at the gate per over-weight bag.
Jetstar will have new ‘Cabin Baggage Officers’ in place who will police the gate areas prior to departure of all flights to enforce the new carry-on policy.
Flights booked prior to 28 Oct 14 OR travel prior to 25 Nov 14
If you made a flight booking prior to 28 October 2014 or travelling prior to 25 November 2014 , the 10kg baggage allowance is still applicable.
