Diving equipment (including a wet suit, vest, mask, shoes, fins, knife and pressure regulator) is considered as a standard checked baggage item and is included at no extra charge in your baggage allowance (except for Economy Mini and Basic fare tickets). However, if you want to transport more baggage items or if you exceed the baggage allowance for your ticket, you can purchase a Baggage Option online or pay a fee for this option at the airport.
For more information, please see the Baggage user guide page.
Please note: underwater diving flashlights are accepted with prior approval from our customer service department. You must submit your request at least 48 hours before your flight’s departure.
Compressed air scuba tanks are accepted in the hold, as long as they are empty and do not exceed 23 kg / 50 lb in weight. However, their transport is not included in your baggage allowance. At the airport, you must pay an extra fee* that varies based on your trip.
