Larger Items: Sports, Diving, and Musical Instruments

  • Sports equipment: Contact Thomson Airways at least 2 months before you travel to pre-book sports equipment onto your flight. If you don't pre-book, Thomson Airways may refuse to carry your equipment when you get to the airport.
  • Diving equipment: If you're carrying diving equipment and you show your diving certificate at check-in, Thomson Airways will give you an extra 5 kg (approx. 11 lbs.) baggage allowance free. If you've got more equipment, you must check it in for an extra charge.
  • If your instrument is larger than the maximum hand baggage dimensions, you'll need to check it in for an extra charge.
