    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:
