KLM accepts surf gear as suitcase


KLM Royal Dutch Airlines passengers can now check in their surf equipment instead of a suitcase on all KLM and all AIR FRANCE operated flights.

On intercontinental flights, travellers can now bring their surf gear for free. In addition to one piece of free hand baggage, they can choose to take their surf gear instead of a suitcase at no additional charge.On European flights, checking in surf gear is possible against the same fee that applies to a suitcase. Advanced payment online is 40 EUR for a return flight, while payment on the airport upon departure is 60 EUR.

The new offer applies for surf, kitesurf and windsurf equipment, if packed in one bag with a maximum length of 300 cm / 118 inch and max weight of 23 kg / 50.5 lbs for an Economy Class ticket.

To be sure there will be enough space in the hold, it is necessary to reserve for transportation at least 48 hours before departure.

With this advantage for surfers, KLM hopes to offer an attractive solution to those who would like to travel with their surf gear.More information and 3 inspiring videos inviting to discover the surf destinations Bali, Lisbon and Norway together with Dutch surf champion Yannick de Jager are available on KLM.com/surf.
