If, however, you declare a higher value of your baggage and pay an additional charge in advance, the air carrier’s liability will be higher. You must submit your claim for lost or damaged baggage to the air carrier or to us within 3 days of the charter flight. Your claim must include a copy of the Baggage Check.

$20.00 per checked bag. 44lbs including 1 carry on up to 20lbs no extra charge. Every lb thereafter will be $2.00 per lb. Irregular luggage is $3.00 per lb.

Make Your Trip Better Using 3-1-1

TSA and their security partners conducted extensive explosives testing since August 10, 2006 and determined that liquids, aerosols and gels, in limited quantities, are safe to bring aboard an aircraft. The one bag limit per traveler limits the total amount each traveler can bring.  Consolidating the bottles into one bag and X-raying them separately from the carry-on bag enables security officers to quickly clear the items.

3-1-1 for Carry On items= 3.4 ounce (100ml) bottle or less (by volume) ; 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. 3.4 ounce (100ml) container size is a security measure.

Be prepared. Each time TSA searches a carry-on it slows down the line. Practicing 3-1-1 will ensure a faster and easier checkpoint experience.

3-1-1 is for short trips. If in doubt, put your liquids in checked luggage.

Declare larger liquids. Medications, baby formula and food, and breast milk are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding three ounces and are not required to be in the zip-top bag. Declare these items for inspection at the checkpoint. Officers may need to open these items to conduct additional screening.
