SunExpress conditions for flying with sports equipment

For passengers who like to practice their favorite sport during their stay abroad, SunExpress allows them to take its flights with their sports equipment.

Surfing the most beautiful beaches in the world or cycling through Europe and discovering the most spectacular landscapes is the dream of many of us, although few end up realizing it due to the expense it can entail.

With SunExpress, you can enjoy your dream vacation without spending more than necessary.

SunExpress flies you aboard its planes with your special baggage

Many passengers need to move tools and restrictions and admissions reappear depending on whether it is carry-on or checked baggage. Axes, machetes, sharp tools, auto parts, cables, handcuffs, hammers, crowbars, multi-purpose tools, folding knives, drills or screwdrivers are only accepted in baggage checked at the counter.

There is also special equipment, which consists of different work tools depending on the trade or profession. Surfboards, windsurfing boards and snowboards as well as skis can be transported in the hold but not in the cabin. The same goes for bicycles, buggies and diving equipment. Musical instruments, on the other hand, can be carried upstairs depending on their dimensions.

If this summer you plan to check your bike, surfboard or golfbag clubs on the plane, before booking your flight you will want to know what the airline surcharge is for checking special baggage and what are the restrictions you need to take into account.

It is often better to spend a little more on the price of the plane ticket so that a suitcase is included. It’s a great way to avoid expensive baggage surcharges. Remember to arrive at the airport in advance to avoid stress during check-in.

Check the airline’s packing requirements. If you are going to fly with your bike, also remember that it is advisable to deflate the tires, so that they do not burst with the change in pressure during the flight. Do not deflate them completely to protect the tires during transport.
