What is the allowance for infants?

If used to board the aircraft these items will be removed at the departure gate and stowed in the aircraft hold. They will be returned to you at the destination port.

Please refer to our section regarding Travelling with Children and Infants for more information.

How much is excess baggage?

Excess baggage can be paid for at the airport or prepaid through your booking agent. 

If using the prepaid facility there is no refund offered if the actual baggage lifted weighs less than the weight paid for.

Please refer to our section on Excess Baggage for charges.

How do I send unaccompanied baggage?

When personal effects are consigned as Unaccompanied Baggage, the passenger must present a copy of their passenger ticket to prove they are genuine passengers. Sending your excess baggage as unaccompanied baggage is often cheaper. You will need to have the baggage with the cargo agent a number of days prior to travel – the cargo agent will advise you of the local requirements. For our Cargo Agents details click here.

What is unaccompanied baggage?

Unaccompanied Baggage is passenger baggage sent separately as personal-effects cargo, and not as baggage accompanied by a passenger. Passenger baggage is a person’s personal wearing apparel, portable sporting goods and portable musical instruments. 

It does NOT include combustion/electric engines, motor parts and tools of trade.
