Preparing your hold luggage properly

Worth knowing

In accordance with the aviation security rules in force, we suggest you read our advice carefully in order to prepare your luggage. Many items are not authorised for air carriage, and others must be specially packed in order to be accepted (especially concealed hazardous goods).

Since the responsibility of the airline is limited in case of loss/theft or accident, additional insurance may sometimes prove necessary.

Hazardous materials and “concealed” hazardous materials

The customer is held fully responsible in the event of a problem on-board associated with carrying luggage in their name containing hazardous materials not declared at check-in.
Certain hazardous goods may be “concealed”:
