Several Alps-bound airlines
have changed their baggage rules this winter. Our table shows
the limits for carry-on and checked baggage on the main scheduled
airlines and charter flights.
Flying within Europe problems can arise.
A pair of boots weighs about 3kg, a pair of skis 4kg and bindings
a further 1.75kg. A suitcase alone can weigh 2-5kg. With all
this equipment you are almost at the limit of what you can
check in on Ryanair. Even on airlines which allow checked-in
baggage up to 20kg you are pushing it. Remember that airlines
charge from £4 per kilo for excess baggage.
Consider taking ski boots as hand luggage.
Buy a boot bag and stuff it with other heavy items, such as
holiday reading. Ski bags have room for more than one pair
of skis. Most airlines do not notice, or care, if it contains
more equipment than you can take free.
Consider the final price for your
journey. Even if the headline fare seems cheap, if you have
to pay £15 to take your skis each way the total cost
may not be such a good deal.
||55x40x20cm. 6kg Max
