Checked baggage

Category : Baggage

On all destinations, except Fort-de-France, Pointe-à-Pitre, Saint-Martin and Canada the Weight concept (or concept of weight) is applied:

Your luggage is transported for free within a certain weight limit which varies according to the destinations. Beyond this deductible, we will be obliged to ask you for a surcharge per excess kilo.

Any package which does not respect these standards and which would be presented at the registration without prior agreement of the company will be refused.

On Fort-de-France, Pointe-à-Pitre, Saint-Martin, and Canada the “Piece concept” (or concept to the number of pieces of luggage) is applied:

This baggage allowance allows for maximum baggage for maximum overall weight.

Prepare your luggage

In compliance with the safety rules in force in the air transport, we invite you to read carefully our advice to prepare your luggage. Indeed, many packages are not authorized for transport by plane or must respect a specific packaging to be accepted. (Pay particular attention to hidden dangerous goods!).

In addition, the responsibility of the airline is limited in case of loss / theft or damage – additional insurance may sometimes be necessary.
