The free baggage allowance is the limit in weight and/or volume of baggage that a passenger can transport as checked baggage without extra cost. Baggage that exceeds the allowance stipulated is subject to an excess baggage fee.
The maximum weight per checked bag is 32kg (subject to an excess baggage fee, if your free baggage allowance is exceeded).

Exceptions:
In the cases listed below, the maximum weight per checked bag is 45kg:
• Live Animals in the Cargo Hold (AVIH)
• Musical Instruments
• Sports Equipment

In case this limit is exceeded it will only be possible its transport as cargo.

Volumes with weight greater than 23 Kg must be tagged as heavy baggage and the actual baggage weight should be indicated on the tag, during check-in.

When travelling with infants or children it will be allowed to transport, free of charge, a baby stroller/basket and a baby chair as checked baggage.

To carry baggage exceeding the maximum allowable weight per volume, a reservation for excess baggage must be made at booking time. This baggage is subject to an handling fee.

All baggage must be labeled with the passenger’s name and contact information.

Charter flights can accept baggage under a different rule.

NOTE: For golf and diving equipment it should be added an additional allowance of 15 kg (in weight concept) or 1 extra volume with 15 kg (in piece concept) over the free baggage allowance.
