Non-standard baggage

Sometimes, you may have to carry large or heavy items with you when you fly. While most sporting equipment and musical instruments can be checked in or carried on board, some restrictions apply to extremely large items or a large number of items.

If you need to transport these types of items on our flights, please contact your local cargo agent.

Sporting equipment

Your sporting equipment – such as golf clubs, surfboards, canoes, scuba diving apparel, skis and bicycles – counts towards your free baggage allowance. If you exceed this allowance, the usual additional baggage charges will apply. This policy also applies if you’re travelling to or from the USA.

We are unable to accept any item above 32kg as checked baggage, and these items may have to be re-packed or sent as cargo. Connect with your local cargo agent prior to your travel if you wish to transport any item above 32kg as cargo.

Oversized musical instruments

Oversized musical instruments - such as a cello and double bass - cannot be brought on board our flights as cabin baggage. If you’d prefer not to check your musical instrument in, you may bring one on board by purchasing an extra seat to accommodate it. We'll place the instrument on the floor and secure it to the seat frame with seat belts.

After proper packing, your musical instrument should be no larger than 140cm x 40cm x 45cm, and not exceeding 32kg.
