Musical instruments carried as carry-on or check-in baggage must be kept inside a sturdy and protective hard case with rounded edges. Musical instruments in soft cases will not be accepted, and we will not provide hard cases.
Small musical instruments – such as a violin or a flute, within the size of 78 x 25 x 15 cm (31 x 10 x 6 in) (H x W x D) and within the weight of 7 kg (15 lb) inclusive of the hard case can be carried on board if it can be stowed safely inside the overhead locker. Please be prepared to check in the instrument if stowage space is not available. The instrument is considered part of your cabin baggage allowance.
Other musical instruments – such as guitars, exceeding the above limits or the cabin baggage allowance must be checked in as checked baggage.
