Based on Neilson Holidays, 2012 saw an increase in bookings for ski holidays and so they expect exactly the same in 2013*. In order to help eager skiers and snowboarders maintain their travelling costs in check, Airport car parking and Accommodations (APH) has compiled a comprehensive guide to flight allowances and charges for carrying skis, shoes or boots and snow planks. The study is available in the Know Before You Go section of the website at kunne http://www.aph.com/skibaggage

The particular table compares the actual allowances of 24 air carriers and highlights the actual checked-in free baggage allocation on short and long haul flights, the expense of searching equipment, the load limit for each bag and any kind of restrictions that are enforced.

When it comes to complimentary luggage allowance, Emirates has been found to be the most nice airline, permitting 30kg per economy ticket on long haul as well as short haul ways. Several airlines also allow two items evaluating up to 23kg on routes from the US; still seven from the airlines—including Ryanair as well as easyJet—do not offer totally free baggage allowance for items put in the keep.

According to the transport of skis and snowboards, 18 from the 24 airlines surveyed allow one set of skis/snowboard and one pair of shoes or boots as part of the customer’s free baggage allocation, including Air Nova scotia, American Air carriers, British Airways as well as Virgin. However , customers is going to be charged for exceeding the standard free allocation, with some air carriers charging a fixed fee.

Of the other airlines surveyed, most charge a set fee for transport of ski devices. These vary from £19. 99 through Monarch if customers pre-pay online, in order to £60. 00 through Ryanair if customers spend at the airport.

Several airlines also impose restrictions on the packing of skis, with Atmosphere Canada and Delta requesting that items should be suitably locked within a rigid or difficult shell container. Vacationers should also check that items of ski devices may be contained in the allocation. The standard allocation is one group of skis and poles or snowboard, and one set of shoes or boots; however , some airlines—for example, Swiss Air—also include head gear.

Nick Caunter, Managing Movie director of APH, said: “As this particular year’s ski season has begun with great snow conditions in most resorts, i was keen use a go-to-guide for consumers travelling abroad along with ski equipment to assist them to understand, and perhaps avoid, extra costs. ”
