Baggage and Carry-on LAN Airlines

 

What is LAN Airlines policy on carry-on allowance?


The carry-on allowance refers to those personal effects brought onto the airplane by the passenger, considered under their custody and their responsibility and free of charge. Each passenger may carry one piece of hand baggage plus a personal item as carry-on allowance.



What is LAN Airlines policy on checked baggage allowance?


This refers to all baggage checked at the airport and transported in the aircraft hold. For flights with stopovers, baggage will always be labeled through to the final destination. The dimensions and weight of each standard piece of baggage are:

 

Standard volume (width + height + length)

158 linear cm / 62 linear inches

Standard weight

23 kg (50 lbs)

 

 

If the baggage exceed the standard weight or number of pieces allowed for the trip, excess baggage charges will apply. Pieces larger than 203 cm or 80 inches, or exceeding the maximum allowed weight of 45 kg (99 lbs) cannot be carried in the hold. On flights to or from Europe, Argentina and Oceania, the maximum weight allowed per piece is 32 kg (70 lbs).


Which baggage policy applies when my itinerary includes a codeshare flight? 


If the trip includes a codeshare flight operated by another airline, passengers should review the inter-airline baggage policy because the largest available allowance on the ticket will apply, provided LAN is the airline checking-in the passenger.

Articles such as jackets, umbrellas, walking sticks, small cameras, binoculars, reading material or a small bag of duty free goods may be carried on board provided the passenger keeps them in his or her possession or stows them under the seat.


Articles purchased on board the flight as well as at the airport are permitted on direct flights. On flights with intermediate stops, the purchase of duty free articles will only be allowed at the final airport or on board during the final leg.


Aerosols or containers with liquids, gel, alcohol, creams or products with a similar consistency (such as lipsticks, stick deodorants, etc.) are not allowed. However, passengers may carry these types of products in a clear, closed and re-sealable plastic bag up to 1 liter so that contents may be verified and as long as each container in the bag does not exceed 100 ml. Medication, baby food and dietetic food for use during the flight are exempt from this restriction.

Prohibited Items and Firearms

You may transport firearms as checked baggage, provided they are not loaded. Passenger must declare the transport of firearms, and failure to do so is a violation of civil aviation regulations. Due to this company’s restrictions, the transport of firearms is not allowed on inter-airline trips with American Airlines.

Oversized Items


Oversized musical or sporting equipment may be considered part of the free checked baggage allowance only if the permitted allowance according to the route and flight cabin is not exceeded. An excess baggage fee will be charged in accordance with the current policy regarding regular baggage for the extra or overweight items. Other oversized items must be transported via LANCARGO.


Regarding sports equipment, you must bear in mind the following:


The size of the item packed may be up to 203 linear cm except for surfboards, which can have a maximum size of 3 linear meters. 
Each piece cannot exceed 23 kg in weight. If passengers pay the excess baggage fee corresponding to their route, the maximum weight may go up to 45 kg, except on connections with British Airways, Qantas and Iberia, and on flights to/from Oceania or Europe, in which case the maximum weight is 32 kg.


As musical equipment are fragile items, they must be transported in cases and containers specially designed for their transport. Small instruments can be carried in the passenger cabin if they are in their case and comply with the requirements established for carry-on baggage.


Baggage Service


If, at your destination, your baggage doesn't appear in the baggage reclaim area, it's important to follow these steps:

 

  • Contact LAN personnel immediately, before leaving the baggage reclaim area. Only complaints made before leaving the baggage reclaim area will be considered valid.
  • Use your Passport or ID, boarding card and baggage receipt to formalize your complaint.
  • Use your name and the case number given to you to trace your baggage online.


If your baggage appears in the baggage reclaim area, but it is damaged, you must contact LAN personnel immediately. If you already left the baggage reclaim area, you must come back to register your complaint no later than 7 days after the arrival of your flight.
