Checking in your ski baggage
*Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama
**This does not apply for the new Economy Class Light fare on routes within Europe. This applies for bookings starting 28 July 2015 and departures starting 1 October 2015.
***The first piece of checked ski or snowboarding equipment is included in the free baggage allowance regulations on all flights except those to/from the USA, Mexico and Central America (Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama) and is therefore free of charge. The maximum weight of the first piece of ski or snowboarding equipment must, however, be within the relevant free baggage limits of the respective booking class. Each further piece of ski or snowboarding equipment or the first and subsequent pieces of ski or snowboarding equipment on flights to/from the USA, Mexico and Central America (Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama) is charged in line with the fees specified above.
