Last time we talking about: Air Force Majeure
It happens that we are forced to change our usual format, not traveling with a backpack or a small suitcase. Sometimes you need to take with you atypical luggage - sports equipment, food processor, favorite ficus, electric guitar or pet.
It would seem that it can be simpler - register all things on the counter at the airport and carry. But no. Each category of non-trivial baggage has its own rules and terms of transportation. About them and will be discussed.
If you are going to the permanent residence, study or a long internship in another country and decided to carry all your things (sofa/floor lamp/food processor) with you, you need to know that the oversized luggage is transported:
a) only as a cargo and
b) for some money.
Ready to go for such expenses? Then go to the site or call the contact center of your airline.
Skis / boards
If you are one of those fans of winter sports, who cannot live (or rather skate) without their own equipment, take it with you. There are two options.
1) To carry a ski kit - one pair of skis / one snowboard, one pair of ski poles and one pair of ski shoes with a total weight of up to 23 kg - within the established baggage allowance.
2) Pay for the transportation of additional space. If you take care of this issue in advance (at least per day), many airlines can get a discount from the tariff set for luggage (up to 50%). Just remember that in order to avoid damaging the suitcases of other passengers, the equipment must be packed in a special case. By the way, if volumetric ski boots do not fit into the boot, simply pack the shoes separately in a bag for ski boots. In this case, both units are considered part of one set.
Everything is simple. Instruments - this is a normal checked baggage, which is transported within the limits of or above the ticket rate included in the ticket price. If the box is small, you can try to take it on board as hand luggage. The exception is the double bass.
Contrary to popular opinion, it is possible to take liquids on board, naturally, following all the rules and regulations. So, it is allowed to take liquids in hand luggage, packaged in separate containers with a volume of up to 100 ml and packed in a transparent plastic package with a total volume of up to 1 liter. In this case, each passenger can carry out only one such package, be sure to show it at the security control post. And in general, from many awkward moments, it is possible to leave, having packed a liquid in a suitcase and having sent it in a luggage compartment.
Perfumery, alcohol and other liquid souvenirs are mandatory. Do not break the integrity of the package before arriving at the destination. Otherwise, confiscation on the first line of control for aviation security.
In principle, a tourist first-aid kit can be put in a suitcase. However, if any medications are too fragile for luggage or you will need them during the flight, safely take in hand luggage. Of course, with the labeling and prescription of the treating doctor.
Actual for passengers with specific food needs and traveling with children. Know, you can take food as much as you want (within reasonable limits, of course). The shape can be any - dry, solid, thick, liquid. The volume of packaging with special or baby food is also not regulated. It is necessary to present special control on demand only on demand.
Restrictions on the import of plants are in all countries. With no exceptions. Sometimes it happens that the bush allowed for export from one state and, it would seem, quite harmless bush is subject to immediate withdrawal in another. Accordingly, the plant can be confronted with confiscation and its owner - a conversation with the vigilant customs of the country of entry. If you do not want such a fuss - check to see if this plant is in the "blacklist".
Only hand luggage. And supervision during the whole flight. In fact, unfortunately, as in any transport, cases are different. So, do not try fate. Safety must be inherent in all.
