Packing oversized baggage
We strongly recommend for all baggage to be clearly marked with the passenger’s name and phone number.

All oversized baggage must be packed in such a way that it can withstand normal baggage handling. This means that the item will withstand the impact of coming into contact with other luggage in the baggage system and when loading/unloading the aircraft. We recommend all passengers pack their special baggage in a hard case to avoid any potential damage. Read more about baggage protection.
