Baggage

Carry-On Baggage

  • One small carry-on baggage is allowed in addition to a personal effect (i.e.: purse, computer bag, etc.). This baggage should fit the template of 19cm x 40cm x 46cm and should not exceed a weight of 5 Kilos.
  • If the baggage does not fit the template, it will be checked-in as a regular baggage.
  • Attention: in case of damage to baggage and to be eligible for any compensation, it is imperative that the passenger reports the damage on their arrival at the airport with an agent or representative of the company in question.

Carry-On Baggage – 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 baggage 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 baggage. 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 baggage as much as possible.
