Oversized baggage refers to all items other than a suitcase, bag or backpack. Musical instruments or sporting equipment smaller than 90cm x 75cm x 55cm and between 2-20 kg is permitted as normal checked baggage.
Transportation of bicycles, large musical instruments and surfboards must be booked via our Contact Centre at least 48 hours prior to departure.

NOTE: As there are limitations regarding the number of bikes and certain large musical instruments that can be carried onboard, we recommend that you make your booking via our Contact Centre. This will enable us to ensure that there will be space for your oversized item.

Reservations for oversized baggage cannot be made by email. All passengers travelling with oversized baggage must be checked-in at least one hour before departure.

You have the option to purchase oversized baggage when travelling with Norwegian. Oversized baggage is charged per person per segment. Excess baggage will be charged for any item that exceeds 20kg. Excess baggage is charged per kilo.

Size and weight
We cannot accept individual baggage units weighing more than 32 kg or less than 2kg. We permit a total baggage allowance of 64 kg per person. The weight limit does not apply to electric wheelchairs, musical instruments or animals in the cargo hold. We accept baggage with a total circumference of 300cm where the maximum dimensions are: length 250cm, height 79cm, width 112cm.

Packing oversized baggage
All oversized baggage must be packed in such a way that it can withstand normal baggage handling. This means that the item will withstand the impact of coming into contact with other luggage in the baggage system and when loading/unloading the aircraft. Norwegian is not responsible for any damage to oversized luggage that is not securely packed in a hard case. © Copyright 2018 - Privacy - Disclaimer
