Particularly in helicopters, luggage storage is usually very limited. The passengers must be sure that their luggage is in line with the specifications of each helicopter. If baggage is to be carried on a helicopter flight, our staff should be notified of the expected size, weight and number of bags (preferably medium size soft suitcases). This will help avoid inconveniences on the flight.
Carrier may refuse to carry as baggage any item because of its size, shape, weight or character.
Passengers are obliged to provide to the carrier the actual weights for themselves and their luggage and be advised that the carrier may refuse carriage of both if in weight excess of what was initially confirmed by the carrier.
Carrier may carry one luggage at 15 kg per passenger as free allowance, unless otherwise agreed.
The additional luggage has to be smaller in size (L:55 cm X H:35 cm X W:23 cm) and soft.
The carrier has to be informed well in advance, for any weight changes or correction thereof. In addition, passengers have to inform carrier in advance for any persons requiring special conditions, assistance or devices when carried. Infants and children should always be accompanied and bring with them their restrain devices.
