Special baggage


Baggage allowances for sports equipment

We invite you to pack it in a rigid protective case, whether it travels in the cabin or in the hold. We do not accept the transport in the hold of instruments (such as guitars) placed in soft cases, as we want to avoid them being damaged.

We recommend that you take out adequate insurance for your musical instrument. Except for tickets booked at the Light fare (without included baggage), its transport is included in the price of your ticket if it is the only piece of baggage you want to check in (Leisure), or one of the two pieces if you are traveling in Comfort or Club Austral class.

Otherwise, the transport is chargeable: purchase an additional baggage allowance to transport my musical instrument
