Special baggage

Can I transport human remains?

You can transport human remains either in the cabin or in the aircraft's hold, but you need to consider the necessary conditions:

In the cabin In the hold

You can carry cremated human remains in an urn that meets the following criteria:

  • The maximum weight allowed is 10 kilograms. If the weight exceeds this limit, it will be considered checked baggage.
  • The contents of the urn will be verified through X-ray screening.
  • The urn must be protected by a sturdy outer packaging, which can be made of cardboard or wood, and it should be padded to prevent damage or breakage.
  • We recommend that the urn be packaged discreetly.
  • You must carry the document certifying the cremation of the remains.
