Right of search

For reasons of safety and security, we will submit you and your baggage to a search or X-ray scan.  If you are not available, your Baggage may be searched in your absence for the purpose of determining whether you are in possession of or whether your Baggage contains any item described as a prohibited item. If you are unwilling to comply with our requirements, we will refuse to carry you and your Baggage.

Checked Baggage

Upon delivery of Baggage, we will issue a Baggage Identification Tag for, each piece of your Checked Baggage.

Checked Baggage must have your name or other personal identification affixed to it.

Checked Baggage will, whenever possible, be carried on the same aircraft as you, unless we decide for safety, security or operational reasons to carry it on an alternative flight. If your Checked Baggage is carried on a subsequent flight we will deliver it to you, unless applicable law requires you to be present for customs clearance, or the reason for carriage of the Baggage on another aircraft is related to the size, weight or character of the Baggage or your failure to comply with our Conditions of Carriage.

You must ensure that your Checked Baggage and Unchecked Baggage are sufficiently robust and well secured to withstand the usual and normal rigours of carriage by air without sustaining damage (except fair wear and tear) and that they are properly locked.

Unchecked Baggage

We will specify maximum dimensions and/or weight for Unchecked Baggage which you carry onto the aircraft. Unchecked Baggage which you carry onto the aircraft must fit under the seat in front of you or in an enclosed storage compartment in the cabin of the aircraft. If your Unchecked Baggage cannot be stored in this manner, or is of excessive weight, or is considered unsafe for any reason, it must be carried as Checked Baggage.


Collection and delivery of checked baggage

You are required to collect your Checked Baggage as soon as it is made available at your destination or Stopover. Should you not collect it within reasonable time, we may charge you a storage fee. Should your Checked Baggage not be claimed within three (3) months of the time it is made available, we may dispose of it without any liability to you.

Only the bearer of the Baggage Check and Baggage Identification Tag, is entitled to delivery of the Checked Baggage. We cannot take any responsibility for ensuring that the bearer of the Baggage Check is entitled to delivery.

If a person claiming Checked Baggage is unable to produce the Baggage Check and identify the Baggage by means of a Baggage Identification Tag, we will deliver the Baggage to such a person only on condition that he or she establishes to our satisfaction his or her right to the Baggage.
