General acceptance of baggage

Only baggage as defined in the definition section will be accepted for transportation. All baggage
is subject to inspection. Checked baggage will be accepted for transportation only on flights on
which you are traveling. Baracuda will not accept baggage whose size, weight, or character
makes it unsuitable for transportation on the aircraft as determined by Baracuda.

No article will be accepted as baggage if it weighs more than 45kgs or has a total outside

dimension (length plus width plus height) of more than 126 inches. Additional restrictions apply
to some Baracuda flights operated on smaller aircraft. For further information, contact Baracuda

Checking your bag

Your name must appear on all baggage. Baggage will not be checked:

●To a city not on your routing
●Beyond your next stopover city
●Beyond your final destination city
●Beyond a connecting city if the connecting flight departs from an airport different from
the arrival airport

Checked baggage may be claimed only by the holder of the baggage claim check. Baggage will
not be released unless all sums due to Baracuda are paid. Baggage claim checks must be returned
to Baracuda on request. Baracuda is not responsible to determine that the holder of the claim
check is entitled to the baggage. If baggage claim checks are lost, proof of ownership may be
required prior to release of the baggage.

In the event your checked bags do not arrive on your flight, reasonable efforts will be made to
ensure that the bag is returned to you within 24 hours for flights within East Africa. Our goal to
return bags within 24 hours applies only when we are the carrier taking you to your final

Some circumstances that may inhibit our ability to return your bags within 24 hours:

●No local name, address, phone numbers are provided
●You are located at a remote location or an unreachable address, such as a cruise ship or a
camping site
●You changed your delivery address, but did not notify us
●We have limited flight schedules to your destination
●Operational circumstances that prevent Baracuda Airways from being able to locate or
deliver your bags within this time frame


Carry-on baggage

The suitability of carry-on baggage will be determined by Baracuda. Each customer will be
limited to one carry-on bag and one personal item. A personal item includes a purse, briefcase,
laptop, or small book bag style backpack. A personal item must be smaller than your carry-on
bag and must fit under the seat in front of you. Fragile or valuable items, such as keys,
medication or computers should be carried in your personal item.

At times, additional limits may be placed on carry-on baggage based on the main cabin stowage
capacity of specific aircraft, which can result in carry-on bags being checked in the boarding
area. In the event it is necessary to check carry-on bags, ensure that fragile or valuable items,
such as keys, medication or computers are carried in your personal item. If government
regulations are more restrictive, such restrictions shall apply.

A carry on bag must fit in the bag sizer and not exceed overall dimensions of 45 inches (length +
width + height). The maximum combined linear measurement of the carry-on bag cannot exceed
any of the following measurements: 22" long x 14" wide x 9" tall or 114cm (56 x 35 x 23 cm).
All carry-on items must fit under the seat or in an overhead bin.

Note: Customers can bring a soft-sided garment bag of up to 51 in / 130 cm (length + width +
height) in lieu of a carry-on item.

Carry-on items which appear too large or irregularly shaped to fit under a seat, in an overhead
compartment, or in a closet or luggage rack will not be accepted for passenger cabin stowage.
Any mobility aid or assistive device that is approved for in-cabin transport on Baracuda, and is
carried by a qualified disabled passenger, is accepted free of charge and is in addition to normal
baggage allowances, provided such aid or device fits in an approved stowage space.
All baggage must be completely stowed before the airplane may depart the gate.

Checked Baggage

Checked baggage charges apply to the first and second checked bag, some exceptions may apply.
Excess bag charges apply for more than two checked bags. Oversize and overweight charges
apply to baggage over the free size and weight allowance. Specialty items may have additional
charges or exceptions to baggage charges.
