Helvetic Airways Overweight Baggage Fee 2011 - Extra Bag Fee - Oversize Baggage

Excess luggage costs an extra EUR 10.00 per kg for each flight. Detailed information can be found in General Conditions of Carriage (GCC).

Increasing the checked-in baggage allowance
For a flat-rate charge you can increase your checked-in baggage allowance from the usual 20 or 30 kg, depending on booking class, (Economy or viva! Business) by either 5 or 10 kilograms.

5 kg additional checked-in baggage costs 15.00 Euros per passenger per segment.
10kg additional checked-in baggage costs 30.00 Euros per passenger per segment.

You can get a discount of up to 50% on the official excess baggage fees and save yourself the hassle of the long waiting times to pay the official excess baggage fees at the check-in counter. This service can be registered either online or by telephone with our Service Centre up to 24 hrs. before departure. The payment is made by a credit card at the time of booking. There is no refund, should the actual checked baggage weigh less than the purchased allowance. Should the weight of the baggage at the check-in counter exceed the obtained baggage allowance then the normal excess baggage surcharge of EUR 10.00 per kg applies and must be paid at the check-in counter.

The carriage of wheelchairs for all handicapped passengers is possible and must be announced when booking. For security reasons, the number of wheelchairs carried per flight is limited. These must be collapsible and must be equipped with dry batteries. Wet batteries cannot be carried. Motor-operated wheelchairs cannot be carried due to the limited loading capacity. For security and space reasons, a demand for carriage exists only if the planned carriage of the wheelchair is registered in advance and has been confirmed. For security reasons, there can only be a limited number of handicapped passengers carried per flight.

Special Baggage
All special baggage (also large sports equipment) and excess baggage weighing more than 50 kg must be registered in advance with a return confirmation from HELVETIC as there is only a limited amount of loading space available above the free baggage. The passenger must register this baggage by telephone with HELVETIC at least 24 hours before check-in, otherwise HELVETIC expressly reserves the right to refuse carriage of this baggage.
The basis of decision for the carriage of special baggage is the available capacity and the security regulations. Special baggage can therefore be limited in its amount or completely excluded from transport.
