Blue Air Overweight Baggage Fee 2012 - Extra Bag Fee - Oversize Baggage

We may refuse the carriage of any baggage exceeding the maximum weight accepted per square meter into the aircraft hold which is not insured or is improperly packed or does not respect the terms and conditions for the transportation of luggage.

If the musical instrument exceeds the given dimensions and/or weight for hand baggage, the passenger must pay the equivalent amount of one seat in order to ensure the transport of the instrument in the cabin.

Traveling with Babies or Small Children
Baby milk and baby food are considered to be essential items and therefore you will be able to carry the milk in bottles containing more than 100ml if necessary. However, you will be asked to taste the milk to prove its authenticity.

Baby food in a quantity sufficient for the duration of the flight may be taken with you in hand luggage but you will be asked to taste the food when you go through the security search area. Jars are preferable to cartons as the jars are easier to check and can be resealed.

Nappies and wet wipes are permitted but any creams, pastes, lotions or gels must be of no more than 100ml maximum placed in a 1 Litre re-sealable clear plastic bag as per the restrictions on liquids.

You may pack jars of food and prepared cartons of sealed formula milk in your hold luggage.

A pushchair or buggy may be taken through security search. You will be asked to remove your baby for a few minutes as the buggy will need to go through the x-ray machine separately.
