Eva's Air Baggage Policy

Eva Airline has flown to a huge number of locations all around the world over the years. The customer-friendly Eva Air Baggage Policy differs according to the flights to and from the United States. The fees will be significantly higher than those for flights operated by other airlines. The airline informs its clients continuously of any changes to its luggage policy. The airline baggage regulations mostly center around two ideas. The fees are assessed by the ideas of weight and piece (quantity). You may securely pack your bags without incurring any additional costs by using these ideas and distinctions.

EVA AIR CARRY-ON ALLOWANCE

According to Eva's air baggage allowance, one carry-on bag and one personal item (purse, briefcase, laptop, etc.) are permitted for each passenger. Every piece of carry-on luggage needs to fit under the seat in front of you or the overhead bin.

The total of each piece's length, width, and height for carry-on bags cannot be more than 115 centimeters (45 inches).

Economy/High-End Economy

One free carry-on item, up to a maximum weight of 7 kg (15 lbs), is permitted.

Business Class, Premium Laurel, Royal Laurel

Free up to two item carry-on limit. Weight limits for each item are 7 kg/15 lbs.

EVA AIR CHECKED BAGGAGE Policy

If you're flying with both EVA Air and one of its codeshare partners, ensure your checked luggage follows the baggage policies of both airlines. Your checked luggage allowance when traveling to or from Canada is based on your price class, or the cabin in which you are sitting.

The combined amount of each piece's length, width, and height for all checked baggage cannot be more than 158 cm (62 in).

Economy 

Free up to two checked pieces of baggage. The maximum weight for each checked luggage is 23 kg (50 lbs).

Premium Economy 

Free up to two checked pieces of baggage. The maximum weight for each checked luggage is 28 kg (62 lbs).

Royal, Premium, and Business Laurels

Free up to two checked pieces of baggage. The maximum weight for each checked luggage is 32 kg (70 lbs). 

Please confirm the EVA Air check-in baggage allowance with a Flight Center travel advisor if you are traveling with a small child.

Additional/Excess Baggage Fees

Countries are separated into 7 zones by EVA Air. The price of purchasing additional Eva luggage weight will vary based on your destination and the zone you are flying out of.  

For instance, purchasing more luggage on a piecemeal route when departing from Taiwan (Zone 1) may cost you: 

  • If you're flying to Canada or the U.S. West Coast (Zone 5), each bag will cost USD 150.
  • If you're traveling to Canada (Zone 6) or the U.S. East Coast and interior points, the cost per bag is USD 180.
  • If you're traveling to South or Central America, each piece of luggage will cost USD 210 (Zone 7).

Overweight and Oversize Charges

Passengers traveling in economy class are typically only permitted to bring a maximum of 50 pounds (23 kilograms) per bag; however, passengers traveling in first class, business, and premium economy may be permitted to bring more baggage. The standard rule of thumb for checked baggage size is to keep its length, width, and height no more than 62 inches (158 cm). It is imperative to verify the particular prerequisites for your itinerary, nevertheless, as varying routes or cost categories may have marginally different restrictions.

EVA Air Sporting Equipment Policy

Any sporting goods not included in the above list will be considered regular luggage and may be subject to an excess baggage charge.

The equipment bag will be charged as regular checked luggage and additional oversize fees may be incurred if it contains apparel or any other things not authorized by the owner.

Sports equipment needs to be packed carefully to avoid any damage. It might not be accepted as checked luggage by EVA Air if it is not packed securely.

  • If it's necessary, you can be asked to open your baggage check at the airport.
  • It is advised that you get baggage insurance before your trip if your athletic equipment is expensive. This could give you more complete insurance coverage.
  • Special luggage is subject to additional rules and fees; for more information, get in touch with EVA Air bookings 48 hours before your trip.
  • If and to the extent that the baggage's intrinsic flaw, quality, or vice caused the delay, loss, or damage, EVA is not accountable.
  • Fees are incurred if the amount of athletic goods exceeds the free baggage allowance.
  • The extra piece cost is charged if the number of pieces exceeds the luggage allowance.
  • The overweight item fee is charged if the weight of the sporting goods is greater than the allowed amount for luggage.
  • The following fees are applicable if the size of the sporting goods beyond the allowed amount for baggage:
  1. Total linear dimension 277 cm (109 in) – no oversized piece fee.
  2. Total linear dimension > 277 cm (109 in) up to 292 cm (115 in) – 2 x the excess baggage rate.

How to Pay Your Baggage Fee on EVA Air?

Overweight: 23 kg (50 lbs) < Weight ≥ 32 kg (70 lbs): 0.5 pieces of excess baggage charge rate should be applied; 32 kg (70 lbs) < Weight ≥ 45 kg (100 lbs): 3 pieces of excess baggage charge rate and obtain EVA Air's approval before travel; Weight > 45 kg (100 lbs): Requires delivery as cargo only and cannot be accepted as checked baggage. 

Oversized: 1 piece of excess baggage fee rate should be imposed if the dimensions are 158 cm (62 in) or less. Dimensions 203 cm (80 in) to 292 cm (115 in): two pieces of excess baggage charge rate must be imposed; dimensions greater than 292 cm (115 in): must be delivered as cargo only; cannot be accepted as checked baggage.

For instance:

If you travel from Taipei to Hong Kong in economy class (two pieces of checked baggage allowed), bring a painting (8 kg/200 cm in total dimensions) and one piece of checked baggage (30 kg/150 cm in total dimensions), you will be charged USD70 (USD140 x 0.5 piece) plus an additional USD140 for an oversized item, for a total of USD210.

EVA Air Musical Instruments Policy

You can be required to pay an excess baggage fee if you check musical instruments as regular baggage and they weigh more than your free baggage allowance.

It is required that musical instruments checked as checked baggage be stored in strong, protected hard cases. We won't take musical instruments in soft bags, sometimes known as gig bags.

Large musical instruments that cannot fit in the cabin, such as cellos and double basses, will only be allowed as checked baggage. You can buy an additional seat so that the musical instrument can be kept in the cabin rather than being checked in, provided that its weight and dimensions qualify it as Cabin Baggage (CBBG).

Free carry-on luggage is allowed for guitars and other small musical instruments (such as violins, violas, flutes, etc.). Only one small musical instrument per passenger is permitted as hand baggage on board.

Hard cases with rounded corners are the best storage containers for musical instruments. Depending on where there is room when you board, you can safely store these things under the seats or in the overhead bins. All passengers are entitled to first-come, first-served use of overhead bins and under-seat stowage space for their carry-on baggage, except specific disability support equipment.

Instead of putting it under the seat or in an overhead bin, you can buy an extra seat and store it inside the cabin. Please notify EVA Air in advance of the departure of the flight no later than 48 hours.
