Rules on the transport of sporting equipment

Sporting equipment may be carried free of charge if within your Free Baggage Allowance according to your ticket. The limitations must be met in regard to the weight per item and the number of items, though the overall size of the sporting equipment may exceed the free allowance limit. If the sporting equipment exceeds the free allowance limits, the charges from the table apply.

  • There is limited space for sports equipment in the baggage hold; therefore, some items may not be accepted. That is why we ask you to declare your equipment by phone in advance (not later than 24 hours before departure), stating the kind of equipment, its weight and dimensions.
  • The maximum weight of the sporting equipment must not exceed 45 kg.
  • If you are continuing your journey with another carrier, we would like to remind you to read the other carrier’s baggage rules to ensure smooth transition of your items.
  • Miles and More programme members holding HON, SEN and Star Alliance Gold cards are also entitled to check-in one item of golf and ski equipment free of charge on Nordica direct flights in cooperation with LOT Polish Airlines.
