All baggage items that are not listed are charged according to normal excess baggage charges.

If you are traveling with windsurfing equipment, surfboards, vaulting poles, musical instruments, or any item that would be considered "Special Baggage." these items must be booked in advance. To book "Special Baggage" for transport or to enquire if you need to prebook your "Special Baggage," please contact us.

As the carriers liability is limited to a sum considerably less than the value of the above items, we strongly recommend to passengers intending to travel with such equipment to ensure that their home or travel insurance covers the replacement value of any valuable items of checked baggage.

If you have any questions, please contact us.
