Check-in your sports equipment
None of your sports equipment can be stowed in carry-on due to airline size and weight restrictions. They must therefore be placed in the hold.

Traveling with sports equipment on a Corendon Airlines flight: Transportation cost
If you need to transport sports equipment on the plane, you will first need to check whether your airline includes them in the baggage allowance. In the case of Corendon Airlines, this baggage is not included and you will have to pay a fee to be able to transport it.
Let’s start by buying a plane ticket, do not forget to reserve a place for your luggage. It should be noted that the airline of Turkey has its own tariffs and rules for the transportation of sports equipment, however, there are only two criteria by which the amount of baggage is determined – this is the weight of the luggage and the seating system.
Kayaks, canoes, dinghies (including catamarans), sailboards, … may be carried as checked baggage subject to the following conditions:
A maximum combined weight of 30kg per passenger is permitted for all types of these items while the maximum dimensions must be less than or equal to: Length: 3 metres, Height: 86cm, Width: 120cm.
Remember that free sports equipment already counts as checked baggage. Therefore, unless your checked baggage allowance allows you to carry more than one piece of baggage, you will have to pay the fee for a second bag.
Sports equipment is carried in the aircraft hold for a fee. The passenger must check in this baggage a few hours before the departure of the flight. To avoid damage and breakage of sports equipment during the flight, Corendon Airlines employees warn of the need for proper packaging. The fees to be paid vary depending on the equipment:
Sports equipment can also be transported free of charge if the dimensions and weight do not exceed the permitted parameters.
Protect your sports equipment from damage during the flight. We recommend that you wrap or wrap them with soft protective materials or use a hard case (available in our airport shops). You can also use your own plastic bags or boxes. If you have any doubts about the protection of your sports equipment, please contact your operator’s customer service before departure. Its experienced agents are always ready to help you.
During transport, sports equipment must be carefully packaged so that it is not damaged during the flight.
