After Air Asia’s most recent announcement which changed their flight regulations to facilitate social distancing, netizens took to social media to express their dissatisfaction with the new 5kg cabin baggage policy.

Following this backlash, the airline has chosen to revert its 5kg baggage limit back to the standard rule of allowing 7kg cabin baggage per passenger, say reports from Malay Mail. The revised weight restriction has also been updated on Air Asia’s latest cabin baggage policy.

Nonetheless, each passenger is still only allowed to bring one baggage per person on flights. When the initial report said that the airline would slash its cabin baggage limit to minimise unwanted contact between passengers onboard, it led to a public outcry.

Captain Ling Liong Tien, Chief Safety Officer of Air Asia Group initially said the amendment was made to ensure safe distancing between passengers during embarktion and disembarktion of flights. Aside from this new ruling, guests are also required to bring and wear their own face masks throughout check-ins, bag collections and flights. Those who do not adhere by this rule will not be allowed to board their flight.

Well it certainly is great to hear that Air Asia is listening to the people and making sure to make everyone as happy as possible!
