Traveling with Special Items
Limited liability release tags (LRT) must be completed and signed by the passenger for all special items upon check-in.
Bicycles will be accepted as checked baggage with a limited release. Passenger is responsible for proper packaging of the bicycle. We highly recommend having the bicycle properly packaged in a box or bike bag with the handle bars turned, the tires partially deflated and the pedals removed for better protection.
Bicycles will not be included in determining the free baggage allowance and will always be subject to an excess baggage charge of $50.00 per piece.
