A major German airline has increased the amount of luggage passengers can check in for free.

German airline Lufthansa has expanded the amount of luggage that passengers are allowed to check in for free, meaning that long-haul travellers on flights to Delhi or Dubai can pack even more in.

Previously, economy class passengers were limited to just 20kg of luggage each, but that has now been increased to 23kg each.

Furthermore, those travelling in Business Class can pack more than twice as much, as the limit has been raised from 30kg to 64kg across two bags.

First Class passengers also have a big upgrade, from 40kg to three bags weighing a maximum of 32kg each.

Mothers carrying infants less than two years of age will not get any extra allowances, however, and the limit will remain at one bag weighing 23kg plus a pushchair.

Finally, some Miles and More club members will be allowed to check in additional baggage for free.

Brits looking to explore India or the UAE can book flights with Lufthansa to destinations such as Delhi and Dubai.
