We will accept non-motorised bicycles up to 190cm (75in) in length, provided they are packed in a recognised bicycle bag.
Please ensure that you:
Pack the bike in a protective case or bag
Remove the pedals or fix them inwards
Fix the handlebars sideways
Deflate the tyres to reduce the risk of damage
Many types of sports equipment can be carried as part of your free checked baggage allowance or as part of an additional purchased allowance if required. We'll even accept some types of equipment over our standard checked baggage size.
We will only accept sporting equipment if it is packed appropriately (to avoid damage) and meets the given size and weight restrictions. Items over 23kg may incur a heavy bag charge. See our advice on specific types of equipment below for details.
