Why do you ask that my luggage is in a soft bag?
Most of our flights are operated by aircraft whose luggage compartments have limited volume and are of an irregular shape. It is thus more difficult for us to stow large rigid suitcases, which in an extreme situation, might have to be carried on the next available flight.
Can I carry sports equipment ?
We do not carry large sports equipment such as surfboards/bicycles and golf bags etc unless requested in advance. Golf bags may be considered on an individual basis when operating our Dash 8 aircraft and will be charged at USD $ 10 per bag per sector.
