Travelling with one of our airline partners? The baggage policies of the other carrier may apply. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the fees for your journey by visiting our airline partners page.

Please note, we do not accept checked baggage fees via our contact centre. You will be able to add baggage on applicable flights through check-in online or at an airport kiosk.

Did you know we fly lobsters too? And you don't even have to buy them a seat (just a special box). We have some other special services that you might be interested in. Unfortunately, lemon herb butter is not one of them.

15 This fare is non-refundable to the original form of payment when cancelled more than 24 hours after booking or for same day bookings.

Carry-on items help to make your trip more comfortable and convenient. We do our best to accommodate our guests' carry-on allowance in the cabin, but acceptance of carry-on baggage is subject to space availability.1 Good guideline: your souvenir stuffed buffalo head is definitely going in checked baggage. For more details, please visit our carry-on baggage page.

One item of carry-on baggage Free
One personal item Free

1 If adequate space is not available carry-on items will be placed in checked baggage (and be unavailable for the duration of the flight) at no cost.

Change shouldn't be difficult. At least we don't think so. That's why our fares allow you to change a guest's name or itinerary, and even the option to change to an earlier or later flight on the day of travel.
