How do I bring a musical instruments on a plane?

If you plan to carry large musical instruments, such as a cello or double bass, you should pay for an extra passenger seat in the cabin. Your agent or local airline office will assist you in purchasing a ticket for your instrument. The instrument's weight may be 75 kg, and the size may be 120 x 50 x 30 cm.

Guitars, saxophones and other musical instruments of similar sizes may be carried as hand baggage if the sizes allow. Note that when placing musical instruments in the baggage, there is a risk that they will be damaged in transit. For more information please fill out this web form.

If the weight of your musical instrument exceeds the free baggage allowance (23 kg in economy class and 32 kg in business class), you will pay a MyBAGGAGE fee.
