Safe Hand Baggage

Safe Hand Baggage is classified as baggage where passengers are permitted to be in possession of their baggage (other than Cabin Baggage) between check-in and boarding. Passengers will have full access to the contents of the Safe Hand Baggage with the exception of the duration of the flight, as Safe Hand Baggage is not permitted inside the cabin.

Safe Hand Baggage of 15kg is permitted for carriage and can be purchased at check-in with a fee of $50.00 + GST. Excess Baggage charges apply for all baggage above 15kg.

Safe Hand Baggage charges do not apply for passengers travelling with wheelchairs, prams and medical equipment required between check-in and boarding.

As Safe Hand Baggage is screened through Airport Security, its contents are subject to all cabin baggage restrictions.

The following items are not permitted as Safe Hand Baggage:

  • Weapons & Firearms
  • Sporting Goods
  • Sharp things that are not weapons, but are capable (with or without modification) of causing harm by penetration
  • Blunt objects that can be used to bludgeon or threaten to bludgeon someone
  • Flammable goods
  • Items capable of restraining someone

Regional Express will not be held responsible or liable should the Airport Security Screening staff confiscate any item/s in your possession.

Items must not be added or removed from the Safe Hand Baggage upon check-in completion.

Safe Hand Baggage must be placed at the bottom of the stairs prior to entering the aircraft. The baggage will also be present at the bottom of the stairs upon arrival for passenger retrieval.
