Wind-surfing equipment is comprised of a board (max. 2.5m in length), boom, luff, mast and sail all wrapped up together. Only one piece of equipment per passenger will be accepted.
In order for such equipment to be admitted to flights, space must have been booked at least 24 hours before passengers arrive at check-in.
The equipment of this kind will always be handled as excess baggage with a fixed rate of 150 EUR, per flight. Charges are payable only at the airport. (When the origin of the travel is America, Nigeria or Israel the rate will be 150 USD).
Passenger's arrival at the airport
Given the nature of this equipment, passengers must arrive at the airport in sufficient time to allow for the equipment to be checked in, taken to the aircraft and loaded in the hold.
Admittance to the flight
If space has been booked, as described in point 1 above, such equipment will be admitted to the flight as accompanied luggage, to be carried in the hold. If the relevant booking has not been made, carriage of the equipment will be subject to the availability of space on the flight. All elements must be suitably arranged and packed, so as to prevent breakage, disruptions or damage when boarding or disembarking and during the flight.
Loading the equipment
Bearing in mind that the nature of this equipment normally prevents it from being borne on luggage conveyors, it is left to the discretion of the airline's staff to decide upon a system for facilitating its transport from the check-in area to the aircraft. Any expenses to which that transport may give rise must be met by the passenger.
In accordance with ANAC (Brazilian Civil Aviation) regulations – for journeys originating in Brazil (outbound and return) the following will apply: SURF EQUIPMENT: Surf equipment is not included in the free baggage allowance and has a fee of 60USD. Additional equipment will be charged at 120USD each.
