My friends and I want to take along our musical instruments. How many instruments can be carried on a flight?
You can carry most musical instruments as part of your free baggage allowance. Each item counts as one piece of baggage. Depending on their size, musical instruments are carried either in the cabin or in the hold of the aircraft.
You can normally take small and medium-sized musical instruments without informing us beforehand. However, if you're travelling with more people who will be taking musical instruments, please inform us in advance as space on some of our aircraft is limited.
If you're travelling with a large musical instrument exceeding these measures (32 kg and/or 190 cm x 75 cm x 65 cm) a prior approval from the airline is always needed. Please fill in this form or contact our customer service. You can also chat with us.
