We happily take on board different sports equipment, such as bikes, golf clubs and fishing rods. In order to book these, please give us a call on 0203 636 1790. We recommend that you do this as soon as possible as space on each flight is very limited. You can also book these on Flight Extras once seat selection is open for your flight, however given that availability is limited we would suggest calling us earlier.
Please be aware that if you bring sports equipment that hasn’t been booked, we may be unable to board it and will also be subject to excess baggage charges at the airport.

Protecting your Sports Equipment


We recommend that you insure your sports equipment for its replacement value and make sure it’s securely packed with zip compartments padlocked. If you’re taking a bicycle, we recommend you use a bicycle bag. Handlebars must be turned inwards, pedals removed, tyres deflated and the bicycle must be wrapped in plastic or cardboard. A hard case bike box is recommended, Shokbox. A guide to flying with your bike.
