BinterCanarias Overweight Baggage Fee 2011 - Extra Bag Fee - Oversize Baggage

Depending on the characteristics of the plane, you may check in baggage over the free baggage allowance by paying the amount established for excess baggage. Information is available at the check-in counter. Excess baggage is that which exceeds the free baggage allowance for the class in which the passenger is flying, and it will therefore be subject to additional charges.

Extra Seat Baggage
This is baggage which, because of its fragile nature or value, is carried in the cabin at the passenger's request, using or occupying an additional seat or additional seats, under the personal custody of the passenger. These items may include, for example, musical instruments, works of art or jewellery. The maximum weight limit is 75 kg per seat booked. Such items are not included in the passenger's free baggage allowance. The fare will be that which the passenger should have paid in the event of occupying the seat for the corresponding sector, applicable at the time of booking the extra seat.

Power-driven Wheelchairs
To avoid possible damage to the aircraft and for full flight safety, power-driven wheelchairs are only accepted on the flight if they are carried in the hold and if they satisfy the following requirements:

Dry cell battery powered wheelchairs: Wheelchairs fitted with non-spillable batteries can be carried as checked baggage provided that the battery is disconnected, the terminals are insulated to prevent accidental short circuiting and the battery is securely attached to the wheelchair.
Wet cell battery powered wheelchairs: Wheelchairs fitted with spillable batteries may be transported as checked baggage provided that the wheelchair can be loaded, stowed, secured and unloaded in an upright position at all times, that the battery is disconnected and secured to the wheelchair, and that its terminals are insulated to prevent accident. If these requirements are not satisfied, the battery must be removed from the wheelchair and carried as checked baggage. The battery must be appropriately packed in the following manner:
The packaging must be leak-proof, resistant to electrolyte and protected from violent movement.
Batteries must be protected from short circuiting and travel in an upright position in packaging surrounded by absorbent material.

Power-driven wheelchairs are considered to be a passenger's personal effects or accessories, and as such are not subject to excess baggage charges provided that the use of the wheelchair is essential in the case of passengers with special physical needs.

Special Services
Special services such as wheelchairs, animal transport or special baggage, must be requested through the Binter Canarias Telephone Assistance Service, by calling the telephone number 902 391 392 or 902BINTER.
