Sports equipment

If you’re planning an action-packed sporting holiday, you can take all the equipment you need with our flexible baggage policy. Most sports equipment can be included within your ticketed baggage allowance – just make sure it's no longer than 300cm. Longer equipment must be carried as cargo. 

Extra baggage charges will apply if you exceed the number of pieces within your ticketed allowance.  

We do not accept liability for your equipment whilst you travel. 

Electronic devices

If any device you are carrying is damaged, hot, produces smoke, is lost or falls into the seat, please inform our cabin crew immediately. Do not try to operate or move the seat as this may damage your device.

Musical instruments and equipment 

As long as they meet the standard baggage dimensions, you can carry musical instruments for free as part of your cabin or checked baggage allowance.
