    Take care with your baggage

    When you check your baggage, a baggage claim ticket is issued that allows the owner of the bag to be identified. For security reasons, luggage is always checked on the same plane the passenger travels on.

    • Make sure your baggage is properly sealed and identified with your name and address;
    • Do not overpack the bag to prevent it from being damaged;
    • Always check the identification information before checking the bag and when you reclaim it;
    • Immediately inform us if your bag is lost or damaged;
    • Do not carry other people's bags with unidentified contents.

    Articles prohibited in the hold

    Some items may not be carried in the hold. If you want to travel with any of these objects, you can carry them in your hand baggage.

    • Valuable and personal items;
    • Fragile or perishable items;
    • Essential medicines;
    • Keys;
    • ID documents or passport;
    • Professional or academic documents;
    • Samples.
