Kenya Airways has reduced the checked baggage allowance on its intra-Africa routes from two pieces to one piece. The airline previously allowed passengers flying in Economy Class from one African country to another two bags of a maximum weight of 23kgs.

In a statement issued by the airline, it said that the intra-Africa one bag allowance would not apply to economy-class passengers travelling to and from other continents. Business-class passengers still retain their allowance of two bags, at no additional cost, weighing a maximum of 32 kilograms per bag.

The new baggage policy will entitle passengers to 20% discount on any extra baggage purchases up to 24 hours prior to departure. 

“Kenya Airways will implement a new baggage policy that will entitle its guests to a 20% discount on any extra bag purchases up to 24 hours to departure. In addition to reduced extra baggage fees within intra-Africa flights, guests will be entitled to one free bag in the Economy Class cabin at a maximum weight of 23 kilograms per passenger,” -  statement by Kenya Airways.
