Excess baggage or non-standard baggage is carried on the same aircraft, provided that the necessary space is available or has been reserved in advance.

Valuable, fragile, or easily breakable items (e.g. musical instruments, chandeliers, etc.) wrapped in protective packaging may be taken on board and placed in a separate seat. For such items, the passenger must have a seat confirmed in advance, together with his/her own seat. When reserving a seat for baggage, the dimensions and weight thereof must be provided. For safe carriage in a seat, the item must not exceed 20 kg (44 lbs.) and its dimensions must not exceed 42 cm (16.5 in) in width, 41 cm (16.1 in) in depth, and 80 cm (31.5 in) in height for any type of aircraft.  A fee equal to the fare charged for an adult passenger shall be charged for baggage carried in a seat.

For details about carrying baggage, see the Conditions of Carriage.

Baggage as a Cargo Shipment

If you travel with excess baggage (i.e. baggage exceeding the baggage allowance included in your airfare with respect to weight, number of items or size), we can offer you the carriage thereof at more advantageous prices. If you have your baggage carried as a cargo shipment, you can take advantage of savings on excess baggage charges. More information can be found here.
