Unaccompanied Baggage is passenger baggage sent separately as personal-effects cargo, and not as baggage accompanied by a passenger. Passenger baggage is a person’s personal wearing apparel, portable sporting goods and portable musical instruments. It does NOT include combustion/electric engines, motor parts and tools of trade. When personal effects are consigned as Unaccompanied Baggage, the passenger must present a copy of their passenger ticket to prove they are genuine passengers.
Please call one of our Cargo Agents to get a quote.

Sending your excess baggage as unaccompanied baggage is often cheaper. You will need to have the baggage with the cargo agent a number of days prior to travel – the cargo agent will advise you of the local requirements.
