Carry-On Luggage – Security Measures

Air Saint-Pierre advises customers to keep in mind the security measures when preparing to travel.

The maximum quantity of liquids, gels and aerosols permitted in carry-on luggage is 100ml/100g (3.4 oz.) per article. These items must be placed in one clear, closed and re-sealable plastic bag no larger than one litre (one quart). There is a limit of one bag per person, which must be removed from carry-on luggage and placed separately in a screening bin at airport security.

Unsealed, open, coloured or opaque plastic bags of any size with liquids, gels or aerosols in containers of any size will not be permitted through pre-boarding security screening in carry-on luggage. Similarly, liquids, gels or aerosols in containers larger than 100ml/100g (3.4 oz) will not be permitted through security screening as carry-on.

Passengers with connecting flights are advised not to purchase liquids or gels in containers over 100ml/100g (3.4oz) at duty-free, if they do not have access to checked luggage between connecting flights or room in their checked luggage to pack their duty-free purchases before re-checking their bags for their next flight.

Due to heightened security screening by authorities, it is recommended that customers reduce carry-on luggage as much as possible.

Musical Instruments

For oversized instruments such as cellos and guitars, it is strongly advised to contact the airline to insure that space is available and that they can be accepted on the flight.
A seat may also be purchased to accommodate larger instruments upon request (ATR 42 only).


As a carry-on luggage

Smaller instruments (violin, trumpet, flute, clarinette) may be brought on the flight as a carry-on luggage so long as :
  • They are adequately protected in a hard case ;
  • They are under 5 kg ;
  • They can be stored under the seat in front of you or in the overhead compartment (not possible on the F406).
As the space available on our flight is limited, we cannot guarantee that your instrument will be accepted as carry-on luggage. Space will be given on a first come first served basis.

As a checked-in luggage

We understand that instruments can be especially fragile and prized and we strive to care for it as you would. If you are checking in with a large instrument, we advise that you check into your flight as early as possible so that our luggage team can better prepare its transportation.
Each instrument will count as a piece of luggage under our luggage policy.
If your instrument is over 23 kg, excess luggage fees will apply up to the allowed maximum weight of 32 kg (all ATR 42 flights as well as B737 to/from Paris only).
