Delayed baggage

In the event you arrive at your destination without your checked baggage, please be assured that we will do our best to retrieve it for you. Delayed baggage is usually located within 24 hours and can be delivered to your home, office or hotel, if local customs regulations permit.

If you incur any expense due to the late delivery of your baggage, we will compensate you ( conditions apply). If the baggage is considered lost, then our compensation will be in accordance with the governed Convention (Warsaw Convention, Montreal Convention) , where applicable.

Damaged baggage

Please ensure your baggage is sufficiently robust, well packed, and properly secured to withstand the usual rigours of air travel.

If your baggage is damaged, you should report upon arrival before leaving the arrival terminal at the dedicated baggage desk within the baggage claims area. A Property Irregularity Report (also known as PIR) will be issued. You will also need to submit a written claim through ‘My Baggage’ within seven days, once you have left the airport.

Mishandled baggage reports must be filed, within seven days from the date of receipt of the baggage, at the latest. 

Please note that accepting your baggage, without complaint, at the time of delivery is prima facie evidence that it has been delivered in good condition. It also means that the acceptance is in accordance with the conditions of contract. 

My Baggage

'My Baggage' allows you to check the status of your baggage online. Through this feature, you may:

1. Notify us about delayed baggage, if you left the airport without reporting it;

2. Notify us about your damaged bag or any other mishandling of your baggage, if you left the airport without reporting it;

3. Check the status of your claim by entering the file reference number that was provided to you.
