For Passengers

Hold luggage and carry-on luggage

All luggage carried by a passenger, including carry-on luggage, must be submitted while registering for the flight in accordance with flight safety requirements.

Dear passengers, please, bear in mind, that free luggage allowance depends upon the type of an aircraft, destination and service class.

When the airline accepts a passenger’s luggage for carriage assuming liability for its intactness, the luggage is marked with a luggage tag and is carried in the luggage hold of the aircraft; such luggage is called registered luggage.

We recommend that you should attach a name tag to each such luggage piece indicating your last name, flight number, date and phone number in Latin letters.

A simplified system for determining the free luggage allowance is employed at Aurora Airlines; it is based on a piece system for the destinations below. The piece system is differentiated depending on destination, type of an aircraft and service class.

If a passenger has two separate tickets (reservations), the luggage will be registered only to the first stop (STOPOVER), turn or the destination stated in the ticket under which the passenger is accepted for carriage.
