We believe that your experience in the skies needs to be a safe and comfortable one. For this reason, we exercise some limitations regarding the size and weight of the things passengers are allowed to bring on board. These limitations are calculated so that your belongings may be stored in the overhead lockers or under the seat in front of you, so as not to obstruct emergency exits or prevent you from reaching equipment such as the life vest under your seat, and do not cause injury should they come into contact with other passengers.
Reasonable quantities of duty-free purchases may be carried on board, but must also be stowed accordingly. Push chairs and strollers may or may not be carried on board depending on the number of seats available in the flight. If you feel that yours is a case of emergency, or if you would like to inquire about bringing other required medical equipments on board, please visit this page or call us at +673 2212222.
