Composed of a board and/or chute with some exceptions regarding standard measurements.
In terms of carriage, they are defined as:
Surf equipment: a surfboard that does not exceed 2.5m in length.
Body board: a board.
Windsurfing: a board (max. 2.5 m in length), boom, luff, mast and sail all packed together.
Kite board: a board and a chute.
Only one piece of equipment per passenger will be accepted.
To be accepted for the flight, space should have been booked at least 24 hours before the passenger presents for check-in.
Passenger presentation at the airport
Given the nature of this equipment, the passenger should present at the airport with enough time to allow the equipment to be checked, carried to the aircraft and stored in the hold.
Acceptance for the flight
If the space was booked in accordance with point 1 above, this equipment will be accepted for the flight as accompanied baggage, to be carried in the hold. If it was not booked as mentioned above, its carriage will be subject to availability of space on the flight. All items should be properly positioned and packed, fastened to prevent breakage or cause problems or injury during boarding, carriage and disembarkation.
Considering its characteristics, which normally impede carriage on the baggage belts, it is up to the Company’s personnel to decide whether to use a system that facilitates the carriage of this equipment from the check-in area to the aircraft. Any expenses that could arise for this concept will be met by the passenger.
It will always be treated as excess baggage with a fixed charge of €150 per leg, payable exclusively at the airport. When the trip originates in America, Nigeria or Israel, the charge will be USD150.
In accordance with a regulation from the Brazilian Civil Aviation Authority ANAC, for flights with Origin Brazil (outbound and return) the following will be applied: Surf equipment is not included under the baggage allowance and involves a charge of USD60. Additional equipment will be charged USD120/per unit.
