Transportation of instruments
In air transport, musical instruments are placed in special luggage, due to differences in size and shape in relation to the dimensions of classic luggage.
Hand luggage: Smaller musical instruments, provided they can be brought into the cabin in their standard boxes, are placed above the seat. They can be classified as hand luggage if their dimensions and weight together with the protective box are in accordance with the regulations of freehand luggage, which is prescribed separately by each airline.
Passenger cabin: Larger instruments are located here for which an additional seat needs to be reserved. An additional seat is in most cases paid for by an adult, but it all depends on the airline. For example, in some airlines, larger instruments may not exceed a height of 140 cm and a weight of 46 kg.
Registration of a musical instrument
When registering the instrument, it is necessary to pre-pack it in a hard box, because as such it is treated like any other luggage in accordance with the weight.
For example, some airlines require that instruments longer than 100 cm must be packed as one piece of luggage; while for instruments whose length is over 203 cm, weighing over 32 kilograms, the consent of the airline is required.
Instruments 140 cm long and weighing over 46 kg are recorded as cargo and are subject to special conditions.
