The Rules of the Board Bags in Air Travel

Airline travel is always very nice. Now, even the most experienced in the subject are often surprised by rules and legislations in airports and airlines, especially in international travel.

-Countries that require visas for Brazilians

Did you know that in Mexico it is forbidden to enter any type of alcoholic beverage?

Leave the country with liters of tequila you can, but not a drop in if you want to run a serious risk of being confiscated by airport agents and even have problems with the police.

Already in flights to Colombia you can even carry a maximum of 5 liters of alcoholic beverage.

Generally those who travel from Brazil to Colombia also faces some luggage restrictions. This is because the aircraft has a weight limit to land at the Airport from there.

-Tips to plan your travel well

In Argentina, good and cheap destination for Brazilians, you can Board quietly with up to 12 bottles of wine, for example. When I returned from the trip to Buenos Aires, brought a pack with 6 bottles of wine, and even bought two bottles in Ezeiza Duty Free, one of the best free shops to buy imported.

Brought all the bottles in hand. Or rather, in a box. I even settled (in good, when you bring baggage fragile or heavy don’t ask for help from the crew, it’s your responsibility).

When I bring drinks on the way back, like, whenever possible, to bring with me, but it is not always possible. In Argentina it’s a piece of cake!

However, the transport of alcoholic beverages really faces constraints. In Muslim countries, planes that fly over the airspace of the country cannot carry beverages.

For some of the best destinations, i.e., heavenly beaches, many remember to buy the repellent at the airport, there can not embark with the spray (spray aerosol bottle).

So, When you go to the beach and remember to buy mosquito repellent before and already put in the suitcase is ready.

Another item that suffers many restrictions are the electronic devices, such as cell phones and laptops.

In London, England, and in Lima, Peru, you cannot carry more than one computer or cell phone with you. That is, you cannot take two phones or two laptops on the trip, as it may have problems with security. One of them should always be done. If the League!

The airline maintains the site a section with information about the rules that it has in relation to the luggage and bag attendant of passengers. Thus, it is possible to know what limit of bags that the company allows per passenger, specifications for size, weight, prohibited articles in the trunk of maple, etc.

A fairly common question I hear from passengers is the procedure with the checked luggage on connecting flights.

There is no rule. Simple and confusing as well. It is always important to consult the airline.

Ask at check-in time, the ground crew – are the best airport airline to inform people. The flight attendants generally do not know, but as soon as the plane lands and the airport agent to receive the plane, he certainly know inform!

On international flights back to Brazil the rule is clear and certainly you will need to remove the luggage in the first Brazilian airport that the plane lands.

For example, a flight coming from Miami with final destination in Sao Paulo but stop in Manaus. In Manaus you will need to remove the luggage and go through the Irs in Manaus. In the Guarulhos airport tends to follow as the flight was domestic.

One important thing that many people don’t even care in time to travel is in relation to the dimensions of bags allowed on domestic flights.

Stay alert, because the tendency is to increase surveillance, even more during the 2014 World Cup and the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016.

National flights the traveler can take up to 20 kg of luggage in economy class. In smaller aircraft this rule can change. International flights the limit rises to 32 kg.

Cases of loss or damage to the luggage during the journey always look for the airline or the Faa or Procon.
