My baggage is delayed, missing or damaged, what should I do?
Delayed baggage means your baggage was not loaded onto the flight you just took. The reason why your baggage was not loaded onto the flight is usually due to safety or technical considerations.
As soon as baggage stops coming through the carousel, you should immediately approach one of our friendly guest service officers. Please provide baggage tag that was given to you at the time of check-in to enable us to track your baggage through our Baggage Tracing System. After completing a form with our staff you will be given a Property Irregularity Report number (PIR) which you can use to check the status of your missing baggage via Manage My Booking.
If your baggage is found, we will make the necessary arrangements to deliver it to your local address provided in the PIR form as and when it arrives. Arrangements will also be made to assist you should items of baggage arrive damaged.
You are entitled to claim, if you have bought AirAsia Travel Protection and your baggage is returned to you after more than 6 hours. Please see this article for more info: http://www.airasia.com/ask/template.do?id=535
Your baggage will be declared missing after a period of 7 days for Domestic travel, and 14 days for International travel, from the date of the PIR. In this situation, you will need to prepare the following documents:-
1. Copy of guest passport / ID
2. Copy of guest bank book / statement
3. SWIFT/BCB/IBN code (for international transaction)
4. An authorisation letter for 3rd party account (if necessary)
