You can choose to check your instrument if it fits within your checked baggage allowance (a maximum of 32 kg and total dimensions not exceeding 158 cm, width + height + depth). Heavy baggage charges may apply if exceeding your baggage allowance.
If transporting musical instruments as checked baggage, ensure you pack your instruments securely in hard case bags or boxes.
Smaller musical instruments can be brought as carry-on baggage, as long as they fit within our carry-on baggage allowance (55 x 40 x 23 cm and weight 8 kg). The instrument case is considered one piece of carry-on. This means that you cannot bring another piece of carry-on baggage if you are flying in e.g. SAS Go.
Musical instruments brought as carry-on must be packed securely in hard case bags or boxes. Soft or fabric type cases are not allowed. Use a case specifically designed for carrying musical instruments.
We cannot guarantee transport of musical instruments as carry-on baggage. Our crew decides weather the instrument can be safely stowed onboard. It depends on aircraft type and how full the flight is. In case your musical instrument needs to be checked in, it will be returned to you at baggage claim at your destination.
SAS provides the option to book and pay for an extra seat for your musical instrument. This is an option if your instrument doesn't fit within the carry-on allowance (55 x 40 x 23 cm or 8 kg) and you don't want to transport it as checked baggage.
