Unaccompanied baggage must only contain personal effects (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.
For further details regarding unaccompanied baggage please contact our Cargo Department or Cargo Sales Agent in your preferred location. Please see information outlined in our “Cargo” section for further details.

Such personal valuable items should be carried on your person or in your carry on baggage under your care.

Avoid carrying fragile and valuable items but where you do carry them, 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; and
