From March 2015, Vietnam Airlines offers Prepaid Baggage services. According to this new policy, except from checked luggage and hand luggage allowance, passengers are possible to prepay fees for overweight baggage too. This service can be purchased online or at Vietnam Airlines brand offices, at least 6 hours prior to departure time. Every single passenger (exclusive of infants under 2 years old) is allowed to buy a maximum of ten blocks, equivalent to 50kg (5kg for each block).
Prepaid baggage is only applied for flights operated by Vietnam Airlines and in compliance with terms and conditions for checked baggage (not applied for Special Baggage). Some sort domestic routes operated by small aircraft ATR72 will not apply for this service. Prepaid baggage is only valid for passengers on the flights that was original booked and cannot be endorsed, rerouted, refunded, or exchanged to other services or tickets.
