Every passenger, including children and infants, can add a spor baggage to your flight. 


We limit sport baggage to one per person in order to have enough space for each bag of each passenger. A maximum of 6 pieces of sport baggage can be added per booking, even if there are more than 6 customers in the booking. If you want to take more than one sport baggage, please contact our service team, they will check the space afterwards.
