Baggage Information

Everything you need to know about traveling with baggage is provided below.

  • Oversized Items

    Oversized sporting or musical equipment may be considered part of the free checked baggage allowance provided that it does not exceed the permitted allowance (according to the route and flight cabin). If it exceeds it, an excess baggage fee will be charged in accordance with the current policy regarding regular baggage.

    Other types of oversized items must be transported via LANCARGO.

    In any event, articles allowed must also meet the following requirements:

    You must bear in mind the following:

    • Special items should be properly packed in a piece of baggage.
    • The volume of the item packed can not exceed 203 linear cm except for surfboards, which can have a maximum volume of 300 linear cm.
    • Each piece can not exceed 23 kilograms in weight. By paying the excess baggage fee corresponding to the route, the maximum weight may go up to 45 kilograms, except on connections with Iberia, British Airways, and Qantas and on flights to/from Europe or Oceania on which the maximum weight is 32 kilograms.
    • Must meet the security conditions required for baggage and can not include prohibited items.
    • Items such as windsurfing boards, kayaks, canoes and paddles, hang gliders, vaulting poles, and javelins may only be transported via LANCARGO.
    • If you bring your bike, you go with one of the wheels removed (preferably the front wheel) and both wheels without air. The handles must be fixed sideways and pedals ben be removed; otherwise they should come with some material to prevent damage to other items.

    Special rules for sports equipment until October 27, 2015
    On flights between Buenos Aires and Bariloche, Mendoza, Neuquén, Ushuaia or El Calafate, you can take one pair of skis, one pair of poles and one pair of boots or one snowboard and one pair of boots, in addition to your luggage allowance, for no extra charge.

    Musical Equipment

    • In the case of fragile items, these must be transported in custom-designed containers. If you do bring your instrument into the cabin with you, it must be in its case.
    • If the instrument meets the established weight and dimensions requirements, it may travel in the cabin. Otherwise, it will have to travel in the hold of the aircraft.
    • As an exception to this, and provided there is space available on your flight, you may bring a guitar with you into the cabin. We recommend that you bring it in a rigid case, because if there isn’t enough room in the cabin, it will be sent to the hold.

    NOTE: LAN's liability for damages incurred by these items (sporting or musical) is limited to what is established by law and existing international treaties.
