On domestic routes the fee per kilogram is 1.5% of the published one-way Economy adult fare for the route being travelled.

On international routes you will be penalised for extra bags over your allowance, for a bag that is too heavy, or too large in size.

Prices vary according to route but as an example, on a flight where the Economy checked baggage allowance is one piece, an extra bag will cost you 450 RMB or 70 USD and a bag that is too heavy or too large will cost 1000 RMB or 150 USD. A bag that is both too heavy and too large will cost 2000 RMB or 300 USD.
