Charge for excess baggage

 

Anything exceeding the free baggage allowance is considered as excess baggage and can only be transported by paying an additional fee for it (taxes that correspond to the country where the excess baggage payment is made apply). Overweight, oversize and additional baggage is transported subject to available space on the plane. We also mean that baggage as (Conditional/Stand by bag).

We will do our best to make this luggage arrives with you on the day of flight. However there is a possibility that due to the operation circumstances, such baggage not transported on the same flight of the passenger. This luggage will be sent on the first flight with available capacity and will be delivered, at most, within four  (4) days from the date of arrival of the passenger to their final destination if it is a domestic flight and eight (8) days if it is an international flight.

If this is the case you can prioritize in which order your pieces should be shipped. You should then contact the baggage office in your city and you will be given the date on which you can pick it up. We cannot offer compensation for delayed baggage timber carried by (Conditional/Stand by bag). Labeled if it is delivered within the time described.
