Note:

1. Each passenger is only allowed one piece of hand baggage, which cannot exceed 5kg.

2. Hand baggage in DHC6 Twin Otter aircraft can be stowed beneath the passenger seat.

3. Due to limited space on DHC6 Twin Otter, hand baggage and personal items may be loaded at the back of the aircraft.

4. Hand baggage exceeding the above prescribed weight or the number allowed, must be checked-in.

5. Infants below the age of 2 years are not entitled to any cabin baggage allowance. Children age 2 years and above will be given the same allocation of hand baggage allowances as mentioned above.

EXCESS BAGGAGE CHARGES

If you need to carry more, we have a range of checked baggage allowances for you to pre-purchase subject to cargo space availability and maximum authorised payload. Rates for excess baggage will be charged on per kg basis (over and above the permitted free baggage allowance of the cabin class). Checked baggage fees are lowest during initial flight booking. The fees at the airport are highest, so pre-purchase your checked baggage allowance in advance. Refer to Fee Schedule
