Excess Baggage

You can take up to a total of ten checked bags per person (including any free allowance). Each extra bag is limited to the same size and weight as bags included in your checked baggage allowance.

Eco and Prem Plus passengers will be charged an overweight baggage charge for bags weighing over 23 kg (51 lbs). Oversized bags up to 190 x 75 x 65 cm (75 x 29.5 x 25.5 in) can be carried for an additional oversized baggage charge, but currently the charge is waived.

You can pay for extra bags online (only before check-in) at a discounted rate, or at the airport.

Sports Equipment

OpenSkies will only accept sporting equipment if it is properly packed (to avoid damage) and meets the maximum size and weight restrictions.
