    Sports Equipment

    Take sport with you!

    Carriage of sports equipment

    Sports equipment can be included in the free hold baggage, provided it does not exceed the allowed weight and dimensions - 23 kg (50 lbs) / 32 kg/70 lbs. and 158 cm/62 in (height + length + width). 

    If you are unable to include it in your checked baggage because you have already used your allowance, additional charges will apply. 

    See the conditions and prices for each type of sports equipment on flights operated by TAP or TAP Express.

    To book the transport of sports equipment, please contact us by calling the Contact Center or visit a TAP counter to inform them of the weight and measurements of this baggage, and to make sure your baggage has been successfully registered.

    The price for the transport of golf equipment stated here is solely for TAP and not flights operated by our partners. 

    Golf equipment is understood to mean the bag that carries all the equipment, including a pair of golf shoes.

    Depending on your departure airport, a Ticket Service Charge may apply in addition to the fixed-rate charges mentioned above.

    Surf equipment

    Kitesurf and windsurf equipment and surf boards must always be transported in an appropriate bag and properly packed.
