For some of our passengers, sports equipment is an integral part of their personal baggage. This page includes everything you want to know about handling, packing, and the cost of transporting this baggage (including bicycles).
It is important to know that it is possible to transport sports equipment, at no additional cost, as long as the equipment does not exceed your baggage allowance, which is determined by the cabin class you are flying in. We know that when you fly to a sports vacation, it is important for you to have your personal sports equipment with you. Therefore we allow you to bring your skiing equipment or a snowboard (one set per passenger, packed into one case - in addition to your general baggage allowance). this does not apply for LITE fare to/from Europe.
Sports equipment can be considered part of a passenger’s baggage allowance, as long as the inclusive weight of the passenger’s baggage does not exceed the dimensions allowed or detailed here:
Sports equipment that is packed within baggage as detailed above, causing the case to exceed the permitted weight and/or dimensions will be charged as excess or exceptional baggage.
In addition to the baggage allowance, every passenger may transport a ski set (pair of skis, pair of poles and pair of ski boots) or a snowboard set (one board, a pair of ski boots) free of additional charge regardless of size or weight.**Skis, Snowboards may be carried free of charge on top of the allowed allowance. (this does not apply for LITE fare to/from Europe).
Transporting sports equipment in addition to the baggage allowance entails payment for its transport (as listed in the following table).
Bicycle transport will be in accordance with EL AL rules and charges will be according to the size and weight of the bicycles after they have been dismantled and packed, as specified in the attached table. If you wish to bring your own bicycles, please follow the following directions:
