A service fee of US $75 per bag will be charged for all destinations except to/from Sao Paulo (GRU), Rio de Janeiro (GIG) and San Jose (SJO), which will incur a charge of US $50 per bag.
For flights within Colombia, there will be no additional costs provided that the items fall under the terms of allowed luggage.
Copa Airlines will transport a maximum of two surfboards, packed in the same bag, per passenger. Any additional boards must be checked as cargo. All passengers traveling with this type of luggage must make their reservation for their surfboards at the time of the ticket purchase or at least 48 hours prior to their flight departure. The number of surfboards that Copa Airlines will carry per flight depends on the type of aircraft for the same travel. At Copa Airlines, we rely on 3 types of aircraft. In this way, the number of surfboard cases accepted per flight has been established as follows:
Boeing 737-700 4 surfboard bags or cases
Boeng 737- 800 4 surfboard bags or cases
Embraer 3 surfboard bags or cases
Below you will see a list of things to keep in mind when packing your surfing equipment for the flight:
The board's sharp edge or keel must be removed and packed appropriately.
Surfboards will be accepted during the embargo period and put on board, no matter what your destination.
Surfboards or surfboard/wakeboard bags measuring more than 115" (292 cm) in length will not be accepted as checked baggage on Copa Airlines flights. Bags containing surfboards or wakeboards weighing more than 70 lb (32 kg) will not be accepted as checked bags.
