United Airlines has waived fees for a second checked bag on routes to China and Hong Kong from North America.
The airline already offers free checked luggage on flights departing China and Hong Kong to the US and says it has listened to feedback from customers.
“We are responding to valuable feedback from customers who are seeking added benefits when they travel to China and Hong Kong, particularly for leisure purposes,” said Marcel Fuchs, United vice president of Atlantic and Pacific sales.
“By allowing a second checked bag at no additional fee, we aim to make the overall experience of traveling to China and Hong Kong easier for our customers.”
Fees for overweight or oversized bags will still be payable.
United serves four cities in Greater China with 89 weekly flights, which is more than any other US carrier.
United also rolled out promotional fares in celebration of the upcoming Lunar New Year for outbound travel until February 16, 2018, and then from April 2 to June 10, 2018
