Delayed baggage

When baggage goes missing we do our utmost to find the baggage and forward it to your address. It is important that our representatives at the airport receive your address, telephone number and a description of the missing bags. You will get a receipt of the report (Property Irregularity Report), and you must keep this safe. This contains a reference number for your luggage.
