Luggage and hand baggage transportation

Passengers are allowed to store any items in their luggage, except for items and substances classified as dangerous under international regulations (for a detailed list see in your air ticket). Transportation of weapons and portable radio sets requires a special permit. Some luggage, such as musical instruments, may be carried in the cabin and even on a “personal” seat, providing however that the passenger purchases an additional air ticket.

The weight, dimensions and amount of luggage which the passenger is allowed to take on a plane are limited. The standard luggage weight permissible for free transportation: coach—20 kg; business class—30 kg; first class—40 kg. Make sure to settle any problems arising from excess luggage weight and dimensions in advance. Check the luggage allowances with your airlines based on the class of your air ticket.

Passengers are allowed to take one item of unregistered luggage in the cabin as hand baggage, providing its weight does not exceed permissible values for free transportation. Unregistered luggage shall be stored on a shelf or underneath the seat. Since the size of shelves and seats in planes may vary depending on the model, airport personnel may request the passengers to have their luggage submitted for transportation in the baggage compartment.

Battery-powered electric vehicle transportation

Battery-powered electric vehicle include:

  • segways (mini segways)
  • hoverboard
  • giroskuter

Based on IATA recommendations airlift such vehicle as checked baggage possible without power battery.

Lithium battery may be transported only in carry-on baggage, provided that battery power does not exceed the established norm - 160 Watt-hours (Wh, W / h).

The small-sized vehicle with non-recoverable lithium battery can be carried when you make it as a " dangerous cargo " through the airport cargo terminal.

In excess of the free transportation luggage, passengers are allowed to take into the cabin:

  • a handbag or a paper folder;
  • newspapers and magazines to read during the flight;
  • an umbrella or a cane;
  • coat or raincoat;
  • collapsible wheelchair and/or a pair of crutches, if the passenger may need these items.

Stewards recommend distributing hand baggage as follows: outer garments and soft baggage—on the shelf above the passenger seat; heavy and bulky items—underneath the seat in front of the passenger. No hand baggage is allowed by the emergency exits and in the isles.

Your luggage (if any) will be checked in during registration. After registration proceed to pre-flight inspection. Passengers of international flights are required to pass border control as well.
