Baggage and carry-on items 

All baggage shipped by the passenger, including carry-on items, must be submitted for registration for a flight as provided by flight safety requirements.

Dear passengers, please, bear in mind that free baggage allowance depends on an aircraft type, flight direction and service class.

The Airlines accepts baggage of a passenger for shipping, assumes liability for its intactness, marks it with a baggage tag and ships it in the aircraft’s baggage compartment – this baggage is called checked in baggage.

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

Payment for oversized baggage is accepted to the same points of shipping, to which baggage is accepted and registered.
