Unaccompanied Baggage

A cheaper alternative to paying excess baggage is to send your baggage as unaccompanied baggage.

Unaccompanied baggage must only contain personal items (excluding valuables) and may not necessarily travel on the same aircraft as the guest.

A reminder that in the interest of safety and security, certain goods classed as “Dangerous Goods” must not be carried as unaccompanied baggage, checked baggage or as carry on baggage. Please see information outlined in our “Dangerous Goods” section.

Solomon Airlines is not liable for loss, damage to or delay in the delivery of fragile or perishable articles, money, jewellery, precious metals, negotiable papers, securities or other valuables (including but not limited to cameras and electronic equipment), business documents or samples which are included in the passenger’s checked baggage, with or without the knowledge of the airline. Such personal valuable items should be placed under your care or placed in your carry-on baggage.

Note: If you are a Solomon Airlines International transit guest travelling on a Solomon Airlines Domestic service, the International checked-in baggage weight does apply.

Keep carry-on baggage as light as possible as there can be considerable distances to walk at some airports and space inside the cabin is limited.

Avoid carrying fragile and valuable items, but if you do, ensure they are well packed and carried on board with you.

Take essential medication and prescriptions on board with you.

Carry undeveloped film in your carry-on baggage rather than checking it in. Check with security screening officers if you have any concerns about possible damage from screening.

Laptop computers must:

  • conform to any applicable regulatory requirements
  • be submitted for security screening
  • not be used during take-off and landing
  • be totally noiseless - printers must not be used inflight
  • not interfere with the aircraft's power supply
