Sports Equipment
Updated on 11 Aug 2022

Sports equipment can be checked in free of charge as part of the passenger permitted free baggage allowance if they meet the allowed requirements: number of pieces, weight per piece and sum of dimensions. Additional charges will only apply in case it is necessary to carry more luggage than the fare allows, or if it exceeds the maximum size or weight limits.

If the sports equipment exceeds the size, weight or number of pieces permitted in the free baggage allowance the following rates will apply.

Important Information: 

Important: Restrictions may exist on some aircraft as to the types of sports equipment that can be transported, therefore we recommend that you contact the Help Desk for Agencies in advance (via email using the keyword BAG on the subject of the e-mail).

The transportation of sports equipment is subject to confirmation depending on the equipment size and/or operating aircraft.

These services are:

  • Available only on flights operated by TAP and TAP Express;
  • Non-refundable;
  • Subject to availability.

As of 19th August 2022, if the passenger changes the original booking to a higher branded fare (either Economy or Business cabin), that allows more pieces of baggage allowance and no longer needs the EMD for the sports equipment purchased because now it’s within the new permitted free baggage allowance of the new branded fare (number of pieces, weight and dimensions), then EMD can be refunded.

Rates in other currencies shall be converted at the BBR - Bank Buying Rate.
