Sporting equipment we do not carry (effective from 6 November 2007)
Due to the large size and handling complexities, some sporting equipment cannot be accommodated through the airport baggage system or within the aircraft hold. Therefore we no longer accept the following equipment at check-in as part of your sporting equipment allowance.
windsurfing boards and sails
kayaks or canoes
Please contact your local freight company to arrange carriage for any items that exceed the permitted weight and size.
