Transporting musical instruments in cabin

Our standard cabin baggage rules apply for the transportation of musical instruments in cabin.

Apart from these dimensions, you can carry your cello in the cabin for a fee. Width, length and depth (including case) should not exceed 140x42x25 cm and weight should not be more than 75 kg.

Please note that you are required to make a reservation for transporting your cello at least 48 hours before your flight.

Transporting musical instruments as checked baggage

We transport your large instruments like contrabass in the aircraft hold as checked baggage. 

In order to transport such music instruments in the aircraft hold, you are required to deliver them in a durable hard case. The instruments you delivered during check-in are not loaded onto the conveyor belt, and we take special care to transport them safely. Please note that you are required to pay extra baggage fee if you exceed your baggage allowance.

We know that transporting musical instruments requires special care and, as such, we mark them as fragile and take extra care while loading and unloading them from the aircraft. Make sure to pack your instrument in a hard case before checking it in or carrying it into the cabin in order to prevent it from getting damaged
