Carrying my sports equipment

You can carry your sports equipment free of charge if it doesn’t exceed the weight and dimensions allowed. If you exceed your total checked baggage allowance (weight and/or volumes), excess baggage fees will apply.
Book for your sports equipment when booking for your flight through our Contact Center (+351 296 209 720 or email address info@sata.pt), our sales offices or your Travel Agency, indicating type, weight and dimensions of the equipment you wish to take.

If you have not pre-booked or your pre-booking has not been confirmed, your sports equipment may be accepted subject to availability on the flight. If the equipment travels on a later flight, you will be responsible for collecting it. In both situations, when the items are accepted, the right to additional free allowance remains as long as it complies with the transportation requirements.
